This week my baby turned five. Five. He is not a baby any more.
He is a rambunctious boy with a big imagination and a big heart. His dad is his best friend and he is going to be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle when he grows up. He is going to have 16 kids because kids are so fun. And, he may also be a Master Builder (like in the Lego Movie). Five is imaginative.
Five is also very grown up. He can write his name, and doesn't need help to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
