Happy 6th Birthday Aidan!

Today is the BIG day our sweet boy turns 6! UGH, time flies when you are watching your kids grow up! But, what a complete blessing the past 6 years have been...

It has been a really great day.

We celebrated the day with a big breakfast and present opening first thing this morning. Then Aidan & I went to Bible study while daddy stayed home with Alayna.

Alayna & I went to baby class this afternoon while Jason & Aidan went to Aidan's school. Jason volunteered all afternoon and even went out for recess with the kids after sugaring them all up with the birthday treats we brought (sorry parents). Jason was a huge hit and had all 3 classes of kindergartners chasing him at recess. He is such a big kid!

After school we had a few of Aidan's buddies over for a bounce house party (Alayna LOVED being in the bounce house, even with Aidan bouncing her around in it)! Jason made an obstacle course and played musical bounce with the kids.

Even though Alayna only slept an hour this morning with daddy and a bit on the way to baby class she wouldn't dream of missing her big brother's party so she was up the whole time! Needless to say the bags under her eyes were HUGE by 7pm. (mine too I might add!)

Alayna enjoying a moment of snuggle time with Uncle Ed!

We are all SO tired, hoping and praying that both kids sleep well tonight!

Update: Alayna was evaluated by Infant Toddler Services on Tuesday (the same coordinator is working with both LC & Alayna :)). She will be adding a home visit from an occupational therapist twice a month. It will be nice as they can assist us in giving us ideas for us to work with Alayna with her own toys.

Oh, Happy Birthday Aidan! You look so handsome and grown up! I have a special place in my heart for 6 year old boys, since I spend a great deal of time with you guys!! Alayna must have been so excited to get to participate in her big brother's birthday celebration. A very blessed little girl she is!!

Wowzers! What a great way to celebrate an amazing KID!

But, AIDAN, we're miserable waiting to hear what was in those boxes! We've all been on the edge of our seats since reading about your sneaky mom and dad's secret shopping spree...

Happy Birthday, Superstar!
