5 Years Ago…

So five years ago, about this time, we were falling in love with our newest addition – Alexander!

He was born on June 11, 2004 and was such a quick and easy labor and delivery. I would go so far as to say he was the easiest kid to bring into this world.

… On his “birth” day!…

… A Couple Weeks Old …

… About 1 Month Old …

… About 6 Months Old …

… Almost 1 …

I can’t believe how quickly time has gone by. We celebrated his 5th birthday with family this past Sunday and on his actual birthday we took him to the store to let him choose his birthday present.

It didn’t take him long to see something he wanted, and I was very surprised to see that he had his heart set on it and couldn’t be swayed into choosing something different…Not even with much prodding from his older siblings.

He was so happy with his choice that he insisted on carrying the Lego set throughout the store. He wouldn’t let go of it for anything. And as soon as we got home, he had to open it and put it together. (Lucky for him Shaylyn was willing to help)

On Sunday we went to my parents ward, as my little brother (he shares a birthday with Lex) was being ordained. After church we headed over to my parents for dinner and a party! Lex had so much fun and was so excited about EVERYTHING he got!

It’s always fun to celebrate both birthdays at once. Lex thinks it’s really cool to have an uncle with the same birthday and loved it when I told him to go and get his “birthday buddy” when it was time for presents and such.

Alexander loves life and gets excited about most anything. It is fun to just watch him somedays because he is just so happy about everything and the simplest things can get him so ecstatic. He is the one in the family that keeps us laughing and the one who really just enjoys life, no matter what life is handing to him.

Happy Birthday 5 year old!
