birthday boy

Its hard to believe this guy is six years old. Every moment since Finn was born has been a whirlwind of activity. I can't believe how quickly the time has passed.

Finn, today you are six. You love Angry Birds. You love to draw them and make up stories about them and play the game on the ipad every chance you get. You also love to draw complex traps and courses and submarines and cars, and then you tell us incredible stories about the things your have drawn. Your mind is always spinning. Your favorite food is still peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. I think at this point I have made over 2,000 of them. But now, you can make them yourself and often do. You can read really well and love Beverly Cleary books and the Hardy Boys. We read together every night. You play soccer and are a good friend to the kids at school. You are a guy with a plan, just like your dad, and hate it when things don't go just so. You love your little brother, but don't always like him when he gets into your stuff. Your favorite colors are hot pink and gold. You think you'd like to be an art teacher when you grow up.

I am so lucky to be your mom. You have taught me so much more than I could ever teach you. I can't wait to see what this next year holds for us both.
