In Which McKay Turns 6

How did my sweet, chubby 8 lb 3 oz baby go from here:

To here?! 

No matter.  McKay is a very lovable little guy.  He always tells me how pretty I am and smothers we with hugs and kisses.  He's a protector to his sisters and a handyman helper to his dad.  He loves playing games and throwing any ball with his dad.  He is really getting into "boy time" with Dad and looks forward to trips to the cabin where he is ALL boy.  He is doing really well at reading, math and handwriting in school.  Today his teacher stopped and praised him up and down for those things which I thought was very nice of her.  He is a friend to everyone which can get him in trouble when he's supposed to be doing other things.  How can I be mad at him for that, though?  :)  He loves playing the piano and is doing really well.  He is also looking forward to his 2nd season of soccer this fall and trying basketball in the winter. 

The poor kid, however, has a CPA for a dad, which usually isn't a bad thing-unless your bday falls 2 days before the biggest tax deadline of the year.  As a mom I feel I have to put just a bit more effort into making his day extra special so he doesn't feel forgotten.  Yesterday I think we suceeded.  After lunch, I took McKay and his best buddy to see How to Train Your Dragon.  The trip was topped off with their own popcorn, drink and candy.  Perfect movie for little boys who love adventure.  We came home afterwards for some cake, ice cream and playtime.

That night my parents came over for his bday dinner-chicken sandwiches, strawberry jell-o and fries.  We did more presents.  I was really surprised and pleased with how gracious my little boy was.  He was so excited with everything he opened and was sure to thank everyone. 

He is such a great kid and I feel so blessed to have him be in my family.  Love you bud!
