Goodbye my sweet 5 year old!

Jaxon turns the big 6 tomorrow! Wow! The last 6 years have been amazing with him in our lives...  I have some fun birthday party pics to share but I think I will wait to post those until next time. For today, I want to remember some great Jaxon things...


I have a feeling I have seen the last of some of these things about Jaxon in the last year... 

So, Jaxon I have to say...goodbye to Peter Pan and Captain Hook. The ships rarely get drug out anymore to battle between good and evil and save your sweet Wendy.  I think the pirate stage that we played for days and days may have come to a silent halt. I don't know when it happened for sure but know it was between 5 and 6. Good bye to having a bed full of stuffed animals each night before you fall asleep with them all in their very own special spot. What used to be 10-12 "buddies" has dwindled down to 2-3.  Thank goodness for Bunny, Cheetah, and Bear :)  Good bye to needing your mama right by you in the swimming pool. This last year you found great confidence in the pool waters and often had friends there that you'd rather play with then your old mom!  Along with that skill, you've mastered shoe tieing, showering by yourself, making your bed, setting the table, cleaning your room (most the time :), putting your toys away in the right spots, going to school everyday, and helping your brother with so many things to name a few.  So many things I used to do for you have been replaced by my ever so capable boy!  You rarely want to hold my hand anymore when you cross a street or are in the parking lot. You rarely want a real kiss, but prefer "cheek to cheek" and eskimo kisses instead.  Hugs have turned into "knuckles" this year and bear hugs have become scarce too. However, I love the rare moments when you are overly tired and crawl into my lap to cuddle and fall asleep. As you told your little brother last week "it's my turn, you have been on mom's lap your whole life!". True, but there is plenty of room for you still big boy!! 

This last year as a 5 year old you had some firsts too... going to school at the big school was the main one! Wow! We are so proud of all you've done at school this year! You've been an awesome student and we are so proud to call you our son. We have also had the begining of many games this year I believe.  They aren't official games yet, but never mind that you ask us to attend one of your prescheduled games almost daily!!!  You seem to keep up with whatever season it is... football, basketball, baseball, soccer. I have no doubt we will proudly sit in the real bleachers someday and cheer you on. It has been fun to watch you this year as you really plug into your love for sports.  I guess your dad was right when you were in the womb... you are our little sportster! I really did  play lots of music for you when you were developing, I promise :)  This year you also really started to get a hold on remembering some of your scripture. I think you memorize verses quicker then me and I have to admit I am thankful for your memory since you keep me on my toes in this area. I have to work hard to keep up with you! 

Jaxon, you are a active, outgoing, sensitive, brave, funny, and a natural leading little boy.  You are now closer to 10 then 0. We've been saying that for awhile now and it is here!  You remind me of your dad so much at times.  Not a bad thing since your dad is a heck of a guy!  I love you lots and am so happy to celebrate 6 years with you! Happy Birthday my big boy!  Have fun at God's Mountain and all of your next year as a 6 year old!!! You are my most favorite 6 year old boy!

I so relate to having the bed full of stuffed animals and now it's down to just a few...funny how it used to make me crazy to try and make Kira's bed with all those stuffed animals in it but now I kinda miss it!

Happy Birthday Jaxon...as Kira says, "Being 6 is awesome...it's so much better than 5!"
