We opted for a very small birthday party for Lawyer...just my family. Lawyer talked and talked about his friends coming to his birthday party and where he would have it at but the school he goes to is not one where it's the kids in the neighborhood. Nothing wrong with that but it just means that you never get to know the parents since everyone is from all over the area (some several towns away).
I have to say that Lawyer is an extremely thoughtful present-opener. He really takes his time to look at and investigate each and every one of his presents instead of tearing into one package and immediately moving on. It makes present-opening that much special to watch.
Thank you to everyone that called him on his birthday. He enjoyed it every time I said "Lawyer, you have a phone call," and then I loved watching his face light up as the person(s) on the other end would sing "Happy Birthday"....it was truly priceless to watch. So thank you!
This child is truly a blessed child to have so many people think of him and love him. I could not be more proud to call him my son and the last 5 years have been filled with nothing but joy and blessings with having him in my life. Even at five years old, he is a magnet to others with his smile, humor and personality. It will be interesting to watch him as he grows up because I know that he is a natural-born leader.
I love you, sweet boy!
