5 years old!
It's hard to believe that our little baby is now five years old! The years have gone by so very quickly...faster than I ever imagined. Everybody tells you it happens that way but until you're reaching little or big milestones with your little one you don't always realize it....you wake up and they're five!
GQ has been the light in our lives. As frustrating and ornery as he can get, he's just this little ball of fun that can put a smile on your face even in the most serious of discipline moments. Everyday I'm amazed at what he knows, the information he so easily absorbs and can spill out when we least expect it. Sometimes funny, sometimes a little embarrassing.
If you've ever met a kid that loves to talk, they've got nothing on GQ! LOL! He will talk from the moment he wakes until he falls asleep. Sometimes we have to remind him to stop talking so he can fall asleep. While we were house hunting we explained to GQ that mommy and daddy we're looking at houses and the realtor was there to answer our questions not his. At one point while his daddy was reminding him about that he told daddy "I can't stop talking!"
GQ is our little soccer super-star. He really is quite the player. GQ and daddy have always played together and it shows on the field. It just comes quite naturally for him and he wants to be out there getting that ball, making goals and helping the team. (I think he likes occasionally falling into the dirt, too!) GQ's game on Saturday was extra fun since it was in the rain and he could get wet and muddy while playing! He sort of surprised everybody during that game with some skills they haven't learned as part of the soccer program. GQ took a header and proceeded to get the ball in his control and travel down the field to score a goal! I was impressed and thrilled for him! A little shocked, too, I didn't realized he knew how to head the ball correctly.
Anyway...I could gush about GQ for hours, but I don't want to bore you. The pics above are a few out of about 175 pics a friend of mine took for his birthday. Just wanted to share a few. GQ has a sweet little girl friend that we do a lot with, so we had her in some shots, too. They are so cute together...they remind us of an older, married couple. When they get along, it's really really well. When they argue, it's like they've been married and together for years. It's cute and she puts up so well with GQ's orneryness and can give it right back to him. It's the perfect friendship!
