Marcus :: F I V E ::

To my kind, loving, sweet, sensitive, cautiously curious, silly, cuddly, funny, smart, little man:
I can't believe we're celebrating FIVE - that's a whole hand's worth of fingers. A half a decade! In a blink you've gone from my chunky little monkey to this little boy.
Often I find myself wondering how in the world I was so lucky, so blessed, to be your mom. Not a day goes by where I don't give thanks for the joy and light you've brought to this world.
You go with the flow, you follow the rules, you strive to make others happy all the time. You love sports, all of them. Snuggles are your specialty. And mac and cheese ever remains your favorite food. Next to ice cream, of course.
As far as big brothers go, you are truly the best. The patience you have with Julia is amazing. I honestly wish I was more like you.
Today is your day, and I hope five is just a special and wonderful as your are.
Happy Birthday, Marcus. Mommy loves you.

  2. It's weird because I've obviously never met Marcus (or you but that should change) but I remember when you were writing his 2 year old post and I can't believe he is 5 now. Happy Birthday!

  3. How is he five? I feel I was just commenting on M Mondays and he was so little. Crazy how quickly time flies. He is growing to be so handsome and you can tell what a sweet spirit he has.

    Happy Birthday Marcus!
