Where does the time go?

It's hard to believe it, but 5 years have flown past and my tiny little baby is now a great big kid. 

Never was this more in evidence than this past weekend. We held the boy's birthday and invited all his classmates. 13 5 year olds all playing mini golf. It was a blast! The boy loved it, His friends seemed to enjoy themselves and the parents did too. 

It was the first time he'd had a party that wasn't just family, and he revelled in it. Now that he's in school, the boy has become a real social butterfly, making the rounds of play dates, birthday parties and afternoons at the park with friends.

I'm so happy to see how much he's grown, but sometimes I really do wish for the little bundle that fit in my arms, not the nearly 40 lb boy that I have today. Especially when we're having one of those days where nothing is right and we all have frayed tempers by the end of the day. But then he'll turn to me and say, "You know what Mummy, I really love you" and it makes me so glad that I have a happy, healthy, chatty 5 year old. I can't wait for the next 5, 10, 15 years (and more) with my boy.

From this...

to this.. in 5 short years!
