Five Is Fun!

Today is the day that Joseph has been looking forward to for a long time. He has had a list of what happens when he turns five. It looks something like this:

1. I go to school
2. I stop sucking my finger
3. I get to sleep on the top bunk
4. I don't have to take nap

Joseph is really a joy to our family. He has a LOVE for people that grows everyday. If you are under the age of 12, you have probably been invited to our house for a sleepover with Joseph. He makes friends in the craziest of places and he remembers most of their names because they are all his "best" friends. I love those tender moments when Joseph leans up close and says to me "I love you Mommy" or "You are my best Mommy". He is a real funny man too. He isn't afraid to do the bizarre. Last week, he bought a pair of thick glasses with a big nose and mustache attached. He enjoyed wearing them through the grocery store just to make people laugh. The following is part of my attempt to take a "nice" picture of Joseph...

Happy birthday Joseph!

(Stay tuned for pics from a totally happening birthday party, JOSEPH STYLE!)
