Michael's Big Five!5:00 AM
On September 7th, Michael turned the BIG FIVE.
I'm still recovering.
The fact that I am now a mother to a five-year-old (and one-year-old) is a little... shocking, to say the least.
I imagine I'll be over it by the time they're six and two. Then that's a completely different hurdle.
But, turn five Michael did and we made quite a
day week out of it. From camping the weekend before with dad, and Marmee flying in the evening before his big day, to donuts for breakfast, a zoo trip, chick-fil-a, and wrapping it up with a Zootopia-themed evening, it was marvelous.

For his birthday this year, Michael's big gift was an Amazon Fire from us and his Marmee and Papa.
It has awesome features, including read-aloud books that make putting his brother down for a nap a little more do-able-- plus it works with our homeschooling reading time, too! This is not to say he doesn't use it for shows and games, too, but we're working out a routine.
At his doctor's appointment he weighed in at 48 lbs and measured 46 inches tall. That's three pounds heavier and 4.75 inches taller. (See Michael is 4! for last year's birthday.)
This kid, I tell you. And I'm pretty sure he's growing-- again. Why does he have to do that?
