McKay’s 5th Birthday

Our “baby” turned 5!

His pregnancy was a shock to me, but God really knew what he was doing!  He is the perfect addition to our family and I love having the kids close in age now that they’re older.

When I was pregnant with him my greatest fear was I wouldn’t be able to give him the attention, holding, or love I had given the other two.  So I made a mental commitment to not let that happen, and I would say we were quite successful.  This child has been loved, held, admired, adored, gazed at, read to, talked to, and praised just as much as any only child or oldest child.  He is the most affectionate, loving little thing so it’s easy to dote on him since he enjoys it so much.  His idea of a good time is cuddling on the sofa and watching Rescue Bots.

He woke up, and woke all of us up, just before the sunrise and loved discovering the decorations and opening his presents.

I ran out to Dunkin Donuts which the kids were overjoyed about!

We met McKay’s very best friend, Evrett, and family at Kidz World of Play around 11 and I think we stayed until 2:30.  The kids love that place.  It’s right up there with Disney and Chuck E Cheese!  McKay was thrilled to see his best friend again after two months of summer separation.  We love Evrett; he’s a great kid!

We ran home, changed, decorated a cake, packed the car, and headed to Ft DeSoto for McKay’s family party.  McKay choose the beach because, “Mimi will be so happy if she sees a dolphin!”  Such a thoughtful little guy!

He always runs to greet her and gives her the most heartfelt hugs.  Then he asks if she has Tic Tacs or mints :)

Over to the beach to cool down and escape the mosquitoes…..

So happy that Gramma’s age, which is 88 1/2, never holds her back!  Her health and abilities are an inspiration!
