5!

Today is kinda a bittersweet day for me. Today marks the 5 year anniversary of Landon's birth. I don't know why but I have been a little emotional about this. It doesn't seem like a my baby boy should be five already. And five seems old, he will start Kindergarten this year and I don't know if I am ready for that.
I remember the day Landon was born well. I had a c-section scheduled for around noon but I didn't have him until after 5 PM because of an emergency surgery that came up (not mine someone else's) I was so nervous and excited about becoming a Mom. I figured that Landon would be a trouble maker because of all the problems he gave me before he was born, but he was almost a perfect baby. I remember the first time I laid eyes on him I thought he was the most beautiful baby in the world (which is kind of funny because when I look back at his newborn pictures now I think he was kinda funny looking in a cute newborn sort of way ;)).

I am so grateful for that afternoon five years ago when Landon came into our lives. I have not been the same since. I could not have asked for a better, cuter, smarter, or sweeter boy. He brings our family so much joy and we love him so much! Happy Birthday Landon!

Clayton thinks its the most awesome thing that he and Landon are the same age now! I can't believe he's 5! What a big kid!

It's so hard to see your baby grow up. Especially when it's your sweet oldest boy. I tear up thinking about him going into kindergarten because I remember how it felt with Clayton! He's such a great kid. We love him!
