Happy Birthday Joe!

My Joe is five today...can someone please tell me how this....


turned into this...

He was born Good Friday 2006. He "whooshed" into the world at the crack of dawn and changed our lives forever. And by "whooshed"...I now understand how some people have their babies on the side of the road...or in taxis on the way...because in some labours, once the pushing stage is "on" its over in a matter of a couple pushes. It went this way for us that time. We had him at the hospital and walked home a couple of hours later...We lived pretty close to the hospital!

This guy keeps me on my toes. He lives life on fast forward...a lot like his entry into the world. Forever bumping into things and man can he cry when he gets hurt. He has my laugh...loud and proud. He is an amazing imitator and is funny like his dadda. He appears to be showing some good leadership skills and is very social. After years of jumping on the trampoline he seem to be developing quite a bit agility.
He is so looking forward to school. There is only one more day to go before the school ends for the term, so he's just going to start on day 1 of term 2...Im sure he'll be fine without any school visits! He'll fit right in...here's hoping!

Happy Birthday Little Man.
I'm off to cook the special birthday dinner. He wants Chicken Curry with roti...roti?! Hate rolling out roti!

Trying out the new trampoline mat. Thanks Grandma and Poppa

There are moments when my Seven year old looks at me, and I can still see the newborn she once was in her eyes.
