five


birthday portrait

annual birthday concert presented by papa

we had more than our share of rainy days last summer- which is when i discovered his single stroke flower…it.made.me.so.happy.
…and then there was the moment that i noticied the manner in which he cherishes his baby brother, how overjoyed he was to hold him in his arms…it melted my heart.

as he filled his big brother shoes proudly and gracefully, we were presented with little proclomations of independence, burst-your-heart-with-joy surprises….
picking out his own clothes and dressing himself- i beamed with pride and told him how great he looked everytime…he likes to wear sweaters as undershirts and his t-shirts on top. now that is original style.

he started to make his lieblings brot, favorite bread all by himself; an open face sandwhich with mayo, turkey, emmantaler, and lettuce…

and when he was cast as the innkeeper in his kindergarten nativity play, we were blown away by his performance! he spoke so clearly and without any fear…the teacher said that he knew all the other parts by heart too- i was in complete and total awe of him and his confidence.

i love his interest in numbers, in letters…he writes his name, my name, his papa’s, and brother’s names- i love it.

this winter, his endurance on long skiing days left us speechless…

the worried look on his face when i fell on our ice-slippery driveway, how he came running to rescue me, his sweet disposition, his big caring heart….a sign for me that we are doing something right…

these are just a few of things that made me smile, made me happy, made me so proud in moments i least expected in this last year….the priceless gifts of this sweet boy.

    p.s. I hope you are feeling fine – that slip on the ice doesn’t sound like much fun. What a sweet little gentleman you have there, coming to his mama’s rescue!
