Happy Birthday Chickie!


Sorry I haven't posted much lately. My life's actually been quite boring lately. Today though, I do have something to post about. It's hard for me to believe it, but this cute little baby is a big grown up boy of 6 today!

He's still got those amazing eyelashes but the hair is lighter and only curly if you let it grow really really long.

He's still Star Wars mad (we gave him some Anakin Skywalker lego) but he's also into Indiana Jones lego and Iron Man action figures. He's liking school, is just starting to 'get it' when it comes to reading and writing. He's organised a little cubby house under his desk with a box to use as a mini desk and that's his 'office'. Yesterday, he was creating a comic book that he planned to take to the school library (perhaps I should create his own blog instead - just in case the school library isn't interested - hehe). Oh and if you talk to him, he's the birthday boy so he gets to do whatever he likes and his birthday lasts several days...

No party, as such, just a family BBQ this afternoon. With a chocolate chip birthday cake that he chose (thank goodness he's not into themed cakes yet - my decorating skills stop at putting a candle in!)

Happy birthday to your little man. I am glad you are back. I am a new reader to you - or was, before you went AWOL, so I celebrate your return!

Good to see you back.

One day you're changing their diapers, the next they are asking for the keys to the car...

Happy belated birthday Chickie! Don't those years zoom by? I remember thinking that J.T. would be a baby forever, then the first day of school arrived much sooner than I ever dreamed it would.

What an absolute cutie - HB Chickie !!

And that Indiana Jones Lego is super-cool. We went to a Lego Superstore while over in the U.S. - love the concept of Lego, *hate* stepping on the goddamn stuff in bare feet :p
