5 Years

I just kissed my baby boy goodnight for the last time as a 4-year-old. Tomorrow at 5:16 pm (and not a moment sooner!) he will officially be 5. He is super excited about it and has been for the last month or so. I just can't believe it has been 5 years already. It seems like he was just a baby and now he seems so grown up.  I know your child turning 5 isn't that big of a deal to most but, for some reason, it seems huge to me. The first milestone birthday...going to kindergarten...all too soon he is going to shy away from my kisses and stop running up to me out of the blue and hugging me and telling me he loves me. And he's my only one (so far), so we are so attached at the hip that I feel like a part of me is missing when we are not together. I have no clue how I am going to survive next year with him gone all day, every day.

This week has been a big one for me. I found out I wasn't pregnant from IUI #2, had to register Logan for kindergarten, began meds for another IUI, and now he's turning 5. What an emotional roller wonder I broke down in tears the other night. It was a good, much-needed cry and poor Chris didn't know what to do. I eventually had to tell him I would be okay and there was nothing he could do for me right now just so he would go to sleep.

Tomorrow is exciting, though. Chris is off work for Good Friday so we are having a surprise family day. Logan has no clue what we are doing...I will post again after tomorrow with plenty of pics, of course.

I love my sweet baby boy. He will always be my baby, no matter what he says. He tells me he has to grow up so he can marry me and be an astronaut and work at Daddy's office. I hope I have at least a few more years of that sweet innocence. I love you more than life itself, Logan. You are the funniest, smartest, sweetest, huggiest (??) boy I know and I hope you have a blast being 5! Don't mind Mommy's tears.
