Five Facts about this five year old....
1) he loves all things repitile
2) he loves to wrestle his daddy
3) eats ketchup with everything
4) has discovered monster trucks
5) now that he is tall enough he can't get enough of Splash Mountain

Miles, my heart can't handle how fast time is going. 
I know there will come a time you will not ask me to lay with you for one minute when I tuck you in.  I know there will come a time you stop singing along with me "the first time ever I saw your face" when I tuck you in.
 I know there will come a time that you wont yell "I love you, goodnight" 100 times when we walk out of your room at night. 
I know one day you will stop sneaking into our bed in the middle of the night.
 I know someday you will realize your dogs name is Magnus, not Mamis
I know someday you will learn that it's "without" not "with about". 
I know someday you will not cling to our leg at drop off.  
I know someday a sticker chart isn't going to be enough for incentive. 
 I know someday Disney movies wont be the only thing you watch.
  I know that someday you wont think our mini van is thee coolest. 
 And I am already sad about all of it. 
I get a little sad every year you get older. 
But I am excited for who and what you will become. 
So I guess I have to let you get older.
Happy Birthday my boy.
We love you more than you will ever know.
We are so happy you came to us.
We wouldn't have it any other way.

 NOW.....onto blogging darling pictures....

 On January 24th, Miles woke up to a couple of balloons and a birthday crown to enjoy during his breakfast.
He had school that day so I just wanted him to feel special before he left for the morning.


After school he got to open his presents from us.
This is hard to see but we put a whoopee cushion under the chair and he thought it was the funniest thing.

and now he knows what a whoopee cushion is and LOVES IT!
What boy wouldn't?

He got a T Ball set so he can work on his coordination.

He thought his pin art was pretty cool. 


The next day we had a little birthday party for him.
He wanted a crocodile party.
Honestly this boy loves reptiles.

He told us he wanted to play party games.
So we asked him what games and he described hot potato, pin the tail on the donkey,  and a toss the bean bag.

We played hot potato using a stuffed crocodile.
We played "toss the frog in the croc mouth"
(the kids LOVED this game!)

 and pin the teeth on the croc!

After games we had a blue cake (croc water) topped with green frosting (croc grass) all of which was Miles idea.

However, I wouldn't recommend blue cake....it got everywhere!

He got to open presents and was so spoiled by his friends.

He loved every second of it.

 These are Miles buddies.
He has a special friendship with each one.
And I hope they will continue to be buddies as they grow up....
cause I really love their moms.

Happy Birthday Miles!!!
