On Sunday my little Wilson turned five-years-old. He has grown up so much over the last six months to a year. He is so much more mature and kind to his brother and sister. He uses bigger words and seems to understand things more logically. Maybe it is because he is going to school four days a week, but maybe it is just because he is getting older. Lately, Wilson has begun to build things with his Trio blocks. He gets a bit upset if the spaceship he built breaks, but then he just builds another one and moves on. It is so neat to see him mature in so many ways. Wilson’s favorite thing in life are: play “baby”, sword fight, play spies, watch television and drink milk/juice non-stop. He also loves his friends from school, and they love him. He is quite the ladies man. One parent told Tom that the girls all love Wilson because “he is respectful and makes them laugh.” What more can you ask for as a parent than that?!?! Wilson is my little cuddler and I love it when he crawls into bed with me in the morning and snuggles in. He is a sweet and active little five-year-old.
For his birthday he wanted a Super Hero party with Goldfish, Pirate Booty, and juice boxes. (I don’t typically buy those food items….you know, GMOs….) It was his birthday so I let him have whatever food he wanted. I even bought him a pinata and filled it with lots of yummy candy. Of course, I offset the candy with my deliciously homemade, all natural, gluten free, GMO free cake. I can’t completely cave, people!!
Mom and Dad offered to have the party at their house so that I wouldn’t have to rent the shelter at the playground. The kids could jump on the new trampoline and play in the backyard. We even brought over the bounce house from my Aunt Lisa’s and set it up in the driveway. It was perfect!! All of the kids from school that he specifically wanted to invite were there, along with his cousins and some friends from church. Here is what it looked like….
Here are all the kids along with John dressed up at Captain America.
Every normal picture must be followed up by a silly face picture….
We tied the pinata to the swingset and let the kids hit it with a plastic hammer. This worked great because each kid could hit is five times and it still didn’t break. Eventually the pinata fell to the ground and then Tom held it while Wilson beat the crap out of it with a real stick. There was more than enough candy for everyone.
Here is Wilson with the pumpkin cake that he wanted (which matched the pumpkin pinata)…
Wilson and Robin Youngs….great buddies…..
We always try to get a family picture at the birthday parties. Unfortunately, Tom was eating a big ole piece of candy……
Wilson is my sweet little five year old!! He is such a joy to be around. He tries my patience like the best of them, but deep down he just wants to make everyone laugh and to have a good time.
Here he is at school with his birthday crown on. Happy Birthday Wilson!!
