So it's almost 2 months after Austin turned 6 and when is it too late to post about his 6th birthday? I say never! A belated happy birthday blog post to our second born son who is as different as night and day from our first born, third, and fourth. And good thing. I love the creativity God has when he makes our little people!
Austin is a gem and we're so blessed by his easy-going strengths and go with the flow personality. He excels greatly in creativity and problem solving and caring for nature and others and living a slow paced life. He is so easy to hang around, a wonderful snuggle bug, and always up for an adventure. He loves to make things, be outside, his tablet at the moment, and one on one time. He often will disappear into a room by himself and verbally make it clear he just wants some quiet time. Out little introvert at heart. His love for school isn't as dynamic as his big brothers, but he adores his teacher this year and the new friends he has made. He'd go camping every day if we let him and he's yet to sleep with any pajamas on. Maybe that will come in the 7th year? :) All in all, we are beyond blessed by this goofy, joyful, and adventurous little boy. Happy 6th year to one of our favorites!
Of course, as tradition seems to have it...Austin was sick on his birthday. Again. 3 years in a row!
We celebrated small and then we celebrated big later...
But he's an easy one to have sick at home.
And I'd be lying if I said I wasn't kind of happy :) It meant I got to keep him home with me on his birthday.
He talked about his Ninja cake for months and we delivered.
A simple, Ninja themed birthday party with a small select crowd... Kinda the way he likes it :)
Happy, happy 6th Birthday Austin! You are wonderfully made!
PS However, don't be fooled by a child's gentle spirit and easy ways. I have about gone crazy in the last week as I kept finding myself too early or way late for things. As Jaxon's teacher texted me yesterday that he would be a few minutes out to the van late I panicked, as I was still at home when I got the text. Looking at my house clock I still had 10 minutes to go get them...but then I checked my cell time and I was late!! A little conversation on the way home with the kids about me being late and Mr.Austin was a giggely mess. He simply said, giggeling..." I changed the clocks in the house." All of them. Not a one of them on the right time. Talk about tricking a Mama into thinking she is crazy!!!
