My Little Man is officially 5 years old today

It is hard to believe that 5 years ago today our little man Cameron graced us with his presence. He wasn't the easiest baby to take care of mind you. He always had to be held. If he wasn't being held and he found out about it you would certainly know about it shortly with his wail of a cry. He is the sweetest boy in the whole world. My little cuddle bug as I like to call him. He would love to just spend time cuddling on the couch than doing anything else. He has this whine that would drive a mom crazy, and sometimes it drives my crazy, but it is something that we are working on.

He loved his 5th birthday today. He has asked for the past year that for his birthday he wanted it to be at Chuck E Cheese's with all of his friends there. He got his wish. ( My family has a tradition that we only got friends parties when we were 5,8, and 12. Those being milestones. At 5 we would be starting school. At 8 we would be getting baptized. At 12 it was gaining the priesthood or joining young womens. With 6 kids in the house and most of us shared a birthday in the same month this is how my family got about the birthdays. Really good idea if you ask me. ) When we got in the car after his birthday was all over I asked him what the best part of his birthday was. I figured it would be the presents (most kids answer), but it wasn't. He said it was getting to spend his birthday with all of his friends. The absolute sweetest thing he could have said.

I love my little man and don't know what I would do without him. He always makes me smile and you can't help but melt when you see those great big dimples pop out at you. He is the best big brother to his sister Madeline. He never tries to do anything to make her upset (she takes advantage of him in that way). When he sees her cry he comes and gives her a kiss to make it all better. He is just the sweetest little boy I could have ever asked for.

I need a copy of that Joy school performance. Did you put it on You tube?
