This cute guy turned 6. The day after Mother's Day, just exactly like it was 6 years ago, this kid made me a mom. Here's a little bit about the newest 6 year old in our house.
He's full of personality. He's often in fits of uncontrollable laughter. He may be a little crazy. He loves his brothers. He loves his family. He loves to pray and go to primary. He's a good helper. He says one of this favorite things is when his "whole family is all together." He loves playing the piano, reading, coloring, building with legos, playing his DS and playing any sport! He's all boy. He loves climbing trees with Tadd and riding his bike. He gets so much joy when Max reaches milestones. He loves making his brothers laugh! He's not perfect, and definitely has attitude sometimes but overall, he's a really good kid. I'm lucky he's mine, and even more lucky that he's my oldest. I can't think of a better kid to be the big brother of Tadd and Max.
For his birthday, Aaron and I got to go surprise him at school and have lunch with him. He was so excited and just kept hugging us and saying, "I LOVE this day! Birthdays are so awesome."
For dinner he chose pizza. We decided to make pizza. It was fun and simple. Kade got very involved in making the dough and putting the toppings on. He loves to help cook and bake.
While dinner was in the oven, he opened presents.
There was a gift card. From Target. It had a robot on it, and he needed it to be his. He was heartbroken when we left Target without it.
For Kade's birthday we bought him a gift card. It has $5 on it but I don't think that even matters to him. He was just thrilled to see his new "robot credit card."
The new bike. He was really excited for a new bike! He even mentioned to Aaron a few days before his birthday how disappointed he was when Santa didn't bring a new bike to him.
We ate pizza. It was good. Kade got to use the "special day" plate.
Then we sang "Happy Birthday" and ate ice-cream-cupcakes as per the request of the birthday boy. Afterwards, we watched all the awesome videos he got from family members that don't live close enough to be here with us on his day. He got a few from Aunt Cici (Kelsey) and Carson, Nana and Grandpa (and Brock and Becca), Aunt Amber and cousins, Uncle Daniel, and then Aunt Serena. Each video made him smile from ear to ear! Thank you for sending those!
Max, congratulating Kade on making it to 6.
Then on that Saturday, he had his friend-party with a few friends from church. We went bowling, ate pizza and played in the arcade. The arcade was a little chaotic and I don't think I'd do that part again, but the bowling and pizza was fun. Also, the pizza was surprisingly good. For reals.
He had so much fun! We loved seeing him so happy! Happy birthday to my very first baby! We sure love you buddy!
