Can you believe it? Peder is 5 years old today. FIVE! Seriously, how did that happen. He was snuggling with me this afternoon and overflows all over the place when he sits on my lap. Was it really 5 years ago that I could hold him in one arm and he would sit so easily in the crook of my arm.
Look at him now. Isn't he just an adorable little boy? My gosh that smile can totally light up my day. Look at how happy he is with his 24 mini-cupcakes he picked out for his birthday cake (he'll get a fancy Scooby Doo one for his birthday party in a couple weeks). We were singing happy birthday to him and he just looked at me with that sweet smile of his.
Here he is with all of his presents from our little family. He got a cowboy hat and Sheriff badge from me and Jake, a lasso from Mari and a pair of chaps from Emmy. He is all ready to be a cowboy.
When he was all done opening his gifts he said, "Thank you so much you guys! I LOVE IT! Everything is so cute." That made me tear up. Oh my gosh! I am SO proud to be his mommy. Happy Birthday to my little Sweet P.
