Happy 5th birthday, Cameron Michael!! This is definitely one of the most special days for me & Daddy, it's the day that changed our lives forever!!
|The first hug of many|
Ever since you & your sister came along, our birthdays pale in comparison!
|We're ready... or are we?!|
I'm so happy to be celebrating this day & enjoying the wonderful little boy that you've grown to be.
You are such a loving, compassionate guy & you have such a sweet heart. You always worry about other people's feelings, are very quick to show affection by giving hugs & kisses & you're so incredibly sweet to your baby sister. We are so very proud of you!
So, what is my baby, I mean big boy up to as a five year old? Well, you love, love, love playing video games, especially your Wii & 3DS. Your favorite games are Super Mario Bros, Mario Kart & Mario Smash Brothers (you're on a kick with that one right now) & you're in your happy place when Daddy or I come upstairs & play with you.
|Helping bake your cake!|
You love to watch TV & movies, especially SpongeBob, Jake & the Neverland Pirates, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (for Reese) & even Max & Ruby. Your favorite food in the world is pancakes, so that's what I'll be making for your birthday dinner & you also love pizza & cereal. Unfortunately, you're still a very picky eater, barely touching any vegetables & little fruit. Oddly enough though, you'll gobble up the broccoli in Panera's broccoli cheddar soup, which you call "white soup."
You're loving pre-K & doing an awesome job, thriving & learning so much this year! You recently learned how to write your name & hold your pencil properly. You're the lefty of the family too which makes you unique!
You're the king of stalling at bedtime, love to have us tell stories & throw your stuffed animals at Daddy as he lays on the floor. Also, you would think we gave you a laxative every evening because low & behold, you always need to get up and go poop after we've put you to bed! Stinker! You're not very fond of sleep in general since you're so busy & would rather be playing, so if we put you to bed at 7:30pm or midnight, you're still up at 7am like clockwork! As much as I'd love for you to stay up a little later on weekends, we just can't because you refuse to sleep in!
You love to play at the park & take walks with Dempsey & hold her leash. You love our pets & are so gentle & loving & because of that, they adore you too! Casper has become your sleeping partner & we often put you to bed with him right beside you.
I've learned that your a pretty messy baker since this is what I looked like by the time we put your cake in the oven!
I've also learned that unlike me, you love candy corn & have sticky fingers that constantly steal from my new Fall centerpiece! I guess I'll have to buy more to keep adding as the season goes on!
Happy birthday, Cameron! Like I always tell you, no matter how old you are, you'll always be my baby boy. I love you so much & look forward to celebrating YOU today & all the days to come!!!
