Andrew is five!

I've neglected my blogger for the past year (like, a whole year...the last post I did was for Andrew's fourth birthday) because this past year has been a crazy whirlwind of....craziness. At some point I'll write about it but today, it's to share about my big, sweet boy and celebrate him!

He's FIVE. I have a five year old. He's reading, having his own independent adventures in our neighborhood, he's a wonderful big brother, he's learning daily to show compassion and love for others, and we are told frequently that he is a great hugger...I agree! :) He LOVES to give hugs and kisses, and I hope he never outgrows that. I hope he's still sharing his love for his friends and family with hugs and kisses till he's old!

As our tradition is, we do an interview a few days before his birthday. I started at three with Andrew, and plan to start at three with JohnDavid and other kids (number three is due to arrive in Dec!) so we've had two years of interviews so far and I love seeing the changes, but also seeing what stays the same!

If you want to check them out, feel free.

Andrew at three.
Andrew at four.

But here he is at five. We added a new question to the interview this year, "What's your favorite thing to do with JohnDavid?" I think the answer will surprise no one. ;)

I am so proud of my big boy and the little man he's becoming! Happy Birthday Andrew!!

  1. I randomly check here to see if you post because I no longer have FB, and I think about you often! So glad you have posted. Andrew is sooo big, and I love how his answers have evolved so much, but he remains true to himself since birth it seems. This kid is definitely on the path to follow his dreams! I'd love to connect with you on IG if you have one, and email! Miss your face!
