You turned SIX YEARS OLD on Friday, June 11, but we had your "celebration" (as you made sure all of us referred to it) the day before.
You are our slowpoke. Our family turtle. While the rest of us seem to always rushrushrush naturally, you keep a MUCH SLOWER pace.
Sometimes when I tell you to put something away in the dining room, you have been known to ask, "But where's the dining room?" Mommy often wonders what goes on in that head of yours.
I'm so proud of all your accomplishments lately: double-knotting your shoes, reading anything and everything, spelling Eldest's second grade words, knowing all the lyrics to every top 40 tune out there...
And now that you're six, well, we'll work on riding a bike like your brothers. And ending the thumb-sucking.
I can't wait to see what this new year of SIX has in store for you, buddy.
