It's kind of hard for me to believe you're "only" five, my Noah boy. You take after your big brother so much and do most of the things that he does it seems you should be so much older. In some ways I guess that probably makes you pretty mature for your age.
You are such a great big brother to your little sisters too. You've spent so much time with them, you know their ins and outs just as well as I do. Fortunately or unfortunately you have become my middle child. I hope it serves you well in life.
You really are still my happy go lucky little guy. Not much gets you down unless it's someone being unkind. You're sensitive to the people around you and I really appreciate that. You want to be friends and friendly with everyone. That skill will take you far in life!
And I really shouldn't say little. You might break that 4' barrier this summer to go on the big water slides all by yourself. And I'm certain you will if allowed! It's a bit hard to snuggle you ON my lap anymore at 50+ pounds!
I suppose it's highly appropriate that you are my only blondie, being born on St. Patrick's Day. You even had red hair when you were born although it turned blond within the year.
You are my ninja warrior and so creative. You wanted me to take this picture of your sword in the dark and it turned out awesome!
Happy Birthday little man, I hope you know that even if you're sometimes stuck in the middle I love you just as much!
