I now have a five year old, how in the heck is that possible??!! My little man, Landon, turned five yesterday and I did not have a chance to blog due to his sick little brothers taking up pretty much my entire time. (Ethan acted like I was torturing him when I would have to set him down to go to the bathroom, 20 seconds of pure torture!) Despite the sickies, we really had a nice day. I made breakfast and we all at as a family (since Ted took the day off from work), and then Landon got to open his presents from us.
He got a new fishing pole and a tackle box with some goodies to go in it. He has been really into fishing, and every year we go on a fishing vacation and he is now getting to the age where he will be able to fish a lot more and not just hang out in the boat. He kept that tackle box with him all day long, opening, closing, taking it off to just put it back on. It was great seeing his excitement for his present. We had a birthday lunch at the Whippy Dip, and then had grandparents and Uncle Sam over for supper. As we were laying in bed last night, Landon told me it was the best day of his life. Can't get much better than that!
Five years (and 1 day) ago, Landon gave us a huge surprise when he arrived 5 weeks early. He has been full of surprises since. He is my intelligent, "wants to know how and why things work", fun loving and goofey, amazing first born son. Love you more than word, Landy!
