Last weekend my first born turned 5. My children's birthday are always bittersweet for me and I found myself walking the line between excitement and total sadness all day. I can remember the day he was born like it was yesterday. I remember the way he looked at me the first time we met and how good the top of his little head smelled. He had beautiful eyes and my chin. Deciding to be a parent is the best thing I've ever done and every day, although challenging and at times unbearable, is so fulfilling and worth every sleepless night and temper tantrum. My son has turned into such a special little person and I love him with all of my heart. Here are a few images from his Lego themed party.
