Another 5 years passes by!

Where does 5 years go! 
 This little guy came into the world with a lasting memory!
During the last 6 weeks of my pregnancy, I had a kidney stone that there was no solution for
 but to wait it out.
They were going to induce me at 36 weeks but after an amniocentesis, (which I said I would NEVER do) Desperate times call for desperate measures!
 We found out his lungs were not ready.
 So, for 2 more weeks of severe pain, I hung in there and made it through! 

And he was worth it!

Our "Tobi" has a big heart and would give the shirt off his back for anyone,
or share his apple with his baby brother!

Yes, his eyes are intoxicating!
Not good, when you need to discipline him!

His smile is contagious!

And oh the things he gets into! 
He is ALLLLL boy!
I thought it would get better the older he got!
Not really just different! 
He went from climbing out of his crib at 14 months to...  
figuring out how to turn up our deep freeze all by himself!
Maybe not so exceptional in your eyes.
 when you consider that the dial is in the back corner and you have to turn it with a quarter to turn it up or down and the manufacturer made it like that so children cannot figure it out!
 for a few mornings in a row, we could not figure out how the washer and dryer was getting started with full loads in them!  
Yep, you guessed it! 
Our observant "Tobi" figured out by watching just how to do it perfectly at the age of 4!  Detergent, fabric softener and all!

So yes!
He fills our days with endless energy, question upon question, and he has made us all feel like agents on CSI some days! 

I love the way he twirls his hair when he is sleepy and cuddles with me when he wakes up!

The way he talks with his hands when explaining a VERY detailed story

His adorable way of flashing that big old smile and ohhhhhh the way he giggles!

I am so thankful for God's gift He gave us when He entrusted him to us!

So glad we did not stop at #8!


We cannot imagine life without you!
We love you!
