birthday boy...

Where does the time go?!?

We are so excited to be celebrating Andrew's birthday today. It is kind of a bitter sweet feeling for me of course... excited he is growing and getting to experience new things, while at the same time wishing I could slow down time.

In honor of this awesome little man on his special day I thought I would take a quick walk down memory lane to see how he has changed and grown over the past 5 years...

FIRST YEAR...

SECOND YEAR...

THIRD YEAR...

FOURTH YEAR...

and...
his FIFTH BIRTHDAY!!!!

Andrew has actually been celebrating his birthday on and off for a few days now, what a great birthday it has been!!!! Since today is his actual birthday I will focus on that. To start his birthday off right Kevin surprised Andrew with his favorite breakfast... cinnamon rolls. He then got to go to swimming lessons (and show off his new goggles), then just chill at home and wait patiently for Kevin to come home from work. We then ate dinner (he chose empanadas). Kevin made a map of our home, and had Andrew follow the map to find his presents, he loved doing that. Then we had some cake... and opened presents!! 
Andrew is such an energetic and smart boy. He learns new things quickly!! He is a wiz on the computer, and we have recently had to put parental controls on our computer because he has now learned to google!!! (His favorite thing to google is super mario brothers). He loves to run, ride his bike, jump on the trampoline, and now swim. He tells me regularly that when he grows up he wants to play basketball!! He is always coming up with his own games, drawing them out on paper. He loves to write, read, and do math. He is a great brother. Andrew has a fun personality, and one of the best laughs around. He specializes in being goofy and telling jokes. When he finds something funny he says, "that's silly." 
We love you Andrew....
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
