From 10 pounds to 48 pounds!

Today Mitchell turned 5.  He woke up at 6:30 this morning and was ready to go!  He has spent the day doing all kinds of fun stuff, and I have spent the day remembering this day 5 years ago.  I have almost cried several times during the day just thinking back.  He was born on a Monday, and for some reason that just makes today seem even more special…I’m not sure why.  Anyway, he had donuts for breakfast, then it was off for his 5-year Well-Child check.  The pediatrician said he is perfectly healthy!  He is 48 and 1/4 pounds and 44 inches tall.  He was current on all of his immunizations, so no shots!  Yay!  We came back home and opened up all of his gifts.  All he wanted was CARS, Hummers, and Wii stuff.  Then, we went swimming.  He and Sophie love to go swimming.  I used to enjoy it more…but now the shade is my friend!  Tonight he got to pick where he wanted to go to dinner and then dessert.  He wanted Joe’s Crab Shack and Cold Stone Creamery.  Who could argue with Cold Stone?!?  No one in our family!  I think he had a fun day.  I hope so. 

I thought all day about how big he is getting.  He will start school in the fall, and I just can hardly bear it!  Everyone teases me, but to me he will always be my newborn baby.  When he was first born, he was not a tiny little thing like other babies.  To me he was small…I mean he was still a newborn baby after all, but to others he looked like he was 2-3 months old.  People would ask me how old he was, and I would say however old he was….the reply was always….He’s SO big!!  Well…what do you say to that?  Thanks?  He came that way?  I got somewhat used to it…anyway…  Now, he is the big 5!  He loves to play like he is a dog and Sophie is his owner…odd, but funny!  He even has a name…Speck.  He likes to run “super fast”.  He wants to drive a Hummer, and he can spot an H2 or an H3.  He cracks me up with the things he says and does.  He loves to play tennis with his daddy and Sophie.  I love to watch Sophie and Mitchell play.  They are the joy in my life.  When he is sleeping I still see his baby face.  When he gets an owie, he still wants his mommy to kiss it.  He is starting to pray at dinner.  I love to hear him say his prayers at night (Sophie, too); I think it is the sweetest ever.  I know this was all about Mitchell, but it is his birthday, and he only turns five once!  Happy birthday, my little prince!

By the way…Sophie’s birthday is August 31, so although I do plan on posting before then…you can plan on a definite post on 8/31!  Hee Hee Hee!

    Well thanks Steph for making me cry first thing in the morning!!! I remember that nice “healthy” baby from 5 years ago too…I think I gained new respect for you as a woman on that day! 🙂
    I tried to call last night, but I guess you were all partying at Joe’s and Cold Stone. I hope he had a great day! I will try to call later on and talk to him. Give my favorite niece and nephew huge HUGS from me!!!! Love you!
