5 years ago


5 years ago today I became a mom. It was the most wonderful thing that has happened to me as a woman. I always wanted to be a mom when I was little, and my sweet little boy Aubrey was more than I could have imagined. He was a wonderful baby, eating and sleeping really well. He was content and happy. The past 5 years have flown by, and Aubrey is a wonderfully sweet, kind, loving little boy. He makes us laugh every day. He is such a gift from God. I am so privileged to be his mom. He teaches me as much as I teach him. Today we celebrate him.


This week we have been getting ready for his party. When we started talking about what kind of party theme he wanted he wanted a construction party. Then all of a sudden he wanted a "knight party". He was a knight for Halloween and is really taken with them. So, we figured out what he wanted and we have been working on it. I made a knightly banner and he and I made his homemade castle cake yesterday. He is so excited about it. We're having it at the church gym because it's supposed to rain, and 8 boys with inflatable swords and shields running through my house wasn't going to work for me. I will post pics of the festivities later.

Happy Birthday Aubrey!

Can't wait to see how the cake turned out. Aubrey told me at church yesterday about his new Legos. He said that I couldn't play with them but that Jackson could. Too funny!
