Five Year Questions and a Letter to my Baby!

To my sweet Jacob,

You're five years old!  I cannot believe it.  I know it sounds very cliche, but it's true ... it feels like you were just born.  You've gone from this tiny 4 lb premie to a wild, outgoing, stubborn yet lovable 5 year old.  You are starting Kindergarten in just a few short weeks!!  Please forgive me if I cry on your first day of "big boy" school. :)  Here's a quick trip down memory lane ...

 I wish I could find your stats from your check-up with the pediatrician, but I cannot. If I do find them, I'll come back here to update this post because I like to have them to go back and look at them later. 

 These past five years have been amazing. I've learned so much ... you've taught me things I never thought I'd learn. I love you, Bubba!! Can't wait to see what this next year holds for us. 

 Love you, Mommy
