He's 5!

My amazing Jack turned 5 years old last week. Thinking back to when he was born, we were so scared and unsure of what the future was going to bring, and now here he is.  He's smart, funny, and oh so cool. Looking at him you would never know he was anything but healthy.  

He might be a little bit obsessed with robots at the moment, hence the Wall-e birthday cake that his amazing mother managed to make.  He's been insisting for months that we wanted a Wall-e cake and I kept hoping he would change his mind or accept a simple robot cake since my cake skills are limited, but no. He wanted Wall-e. Somehow I managed it, and when he told me it was the best birthday cake ever it made it all worth it.

He starts his second year of preschool next week and is so excited.  He is getting pretty good at reading and definitely getting better at writing. He's going to dazzle his kindergarten teacher next year with how smart and capable he is.  He is helpful, and kind, and loves his little brother (most of the time). I love this boy.

New Year

Jack had a cardiology check up a few weeks before Christmas. Everything looks good. The only thing we are keeping an eye on is some narrowing that he continues to have on his aorta.  They had debated whether or not to balloon it open during his cath last spring and decided not to, but I kind of wish they would have. It's not serious at the moment, but if it gets worse we will be headed back to the cath lab. Hopefully not for a while though. If this is our biggest worry, we will take it.

We had a great Christmas, but after so much holiday craziness, we are kind of glad life is back to normal.

Happy 2013!
