Six years ago today I gave birth to my little monkey. It doesn't seem like six years has gone by. He has grown up so much this past year. He started school, made lots of friends, grown like a weed, loves school and doesn't want to go on summer vacation (that will change), was on the kindergarten basketball team and took a four week course in karate. Now he is having his first birthday party with just his friends and nobody he doesn't want to be there. OK, he really doesn't have much choice over that but this party is just for school friends. He will have another party next week with family at a dairy farm. In many ways he is still my little boy. He still sleeps with his Teddy bear and my puppy, Bella. After a bath he needs me to dry him off as he can't remember how to do it. He drives me up the wall with his mischief making but at the end of the day I wouldn't change a thing about him. He is and always will be my baby. Happy Birthday Nicholas!
