So, my big man is getting ready to turn 6. Totally hard to believe. We're trying to plan for his birthday a little early since master Joshua is said to make his appearance on or around Jacob's birthday. We've been talking about what kind of party Jacob might want. Well, the other day he said the funniest thing... "daddy, I wanna have a slumber party and here's who I want to invite: Addison, Maggie, Rebekah, Rachel, Eden, Zu Zu, Trent and Kaiden. " You notice anything funny about that list? Yep - he wants to invite mostly girls to sleep over at our house. It's kind of interesting that all of those boys once upon a time were born to our Sunday School class at FBC... yet for some reason, none were Jacob's age. So, the folks he hangs with the most are girls. And he loves them - and they love him! And I love them too - it's just a sleepover? Really???!!! Needless to say, that's not going to happen, for lots of reasons, one of which is that this almost 9 month preggo momma ain't exactly up for a slumber party... girls or boys, know what I'm saying? He is meeting new friends at school, but it's just weird - I don't know them or their families yet, so inviting them to a party seems premature. Trying to figure out something that would be just as fun as sleeping over with all his chics for him. :-)
got to open a few presents last night I begged to see what he'd been hiding in the baby's closet... One of the sweetest things I've ever received is a personalized scrapbook for baby Joshua and the first page was already scrapbooked for me. Billy and the boys created Joshua's first ever scrapbook page with their hand prints and little personal notes from each boy. Jacob's said, "dear baby, I can't wait to meet you. I love you." Jonathan's said, "dear Joshua, I hope you don't get lost in mommy's tummy. I love you already." Daddy's said, "remember we'll always be here to hold your hands." Melt my heart. Seriously. Sometimes, I pinch myself to remind me that this really is my life. I am one blessed momma and wife and would not trade places with anyone for anything. Ever.
