Celebrating 5!

This handsome little man of ours turned FIVE last Friday.
Excuse me while a go cry a moment.
OK, I'm back.
This sweet, lovable, ball of fire is so much fun. It is almost midterm of the first half of school and we can't believe how much progress he has made already. He is doing much better with color, number & letter recognition and can write his name on his own. He loves riding the bus and attending school. His love for his sister is steadfast and unchanging. He goes where she goes and does what she does. This is both good and bad as I'm sure you can imagine.
He loves playing in the yard or out front and has become quite the proficient rider on his razor scooter. He learned how to ride his bike without training wheels way back on Mother's Day but hasn't shown any interest in riding again since then. Go figure.
Dawson loves to be his Daddy's helper. The morning of his birthday the two of them spent in the front flower beds trimming back the rose bushes, ornamental grass and {gasp} pulling out all the mums.
Ms. Kiersten baked and decorated Lego sugar cookies for both Dawson's classroom celebration as well as his party that evening at the park. 
(I'm hungry for one right now as I look at that photo)
We had a small party/celebration at Black Hoof Park Friday evening with just a handful of friends.
Dawson with two of his classmates, Dexter & Brandon. Oh, Dexter buddy. That face!
Little man had a short wish list this birthday. It consisted of a dream lite (see above picture and his excitement), a replacement DS, a robot toy and a new remote control car or truck. He received each of those as well as added to his Lego collection.
This was the face we got when he opened his "new" DSI, case & Lego game. He was thrilled to say the least.

I do my best to remind D often that although he is getting bigger and isn't the baby of the family anymore that he is and always will be our baby boy. He soaks it up when he hears us say it. I'll continue carrying him to bed and letting him crawl up in my lap as long as it will last! 
We love you Boo! Happy 5 years little dude!
