When I started this blog the first photo I ever posted was this one:
He was just as little as Janey is now.
And now he's so big.
I can't believe he is five already. I know I am always lamenting how quick time flies, but as I get older it seems like it flies faster and faster. And five is just one of those big milestones.
Patrick, my Christmas-time baby, has such a sweet soul. He is so sensitive, and always a really good little boy. He adores Janey and is always "petting" her and snuggling up to her. He will be such a good daddy one day. He loves sports-whatever is in season is his favorite. He can't stand wearing long sleeves and long pants-his school clothes now. He must be ready to be an athlete at all times, so he wears his t-shirts and shorts indoors-sometimes (if mom lets him-not too school!) he even wears them under his normal clothes-that he quickly sheds as soon as he walks in the door. He loves puzzles and Star Wars Lego guys and likes to practice his flashcards. His favorite friend is his neighbor Anderson. When he sees him at the door a big shout usually goes out and he runs to open it.
We love you Patrick. You are such a joy. Happy Birthday my Paddy.
