Today my biggest boy turns six years old. SIX. I can't believe it has been six years since he joined our family and forever changed our lives. The moment I first saw his face I knew love that I had never known in my life. I was a mess of tears, just like I am now...thinking of the fact that he is six whole years old! Turning 5 was hard for me but I am actually really excited about six. Every single year so far along this road of parenthood has been a little more fun and magical than the year before. Seeing him develop, seeing how he is slowly becoming more aware of the world around him and watching him grow is really one of the most incredible things I have ever been a part of. :)
