My buddy is 5 today

Today is Parker's birthday.
He is five. It is killing me. I have been a crying mess for days. Not sure why. He is super proud of himself. He loves being able to tell everyone he is "a whole hand." I am having a hard time adjusting to him growing up and maturing.
He is super smart, intuitive, funny, athletic, silly, and sweet all at the same time.
Don't you love those silly bands, he wanted to wear them for his stair picture.
I hate it that he is growing up so fast. Please slow down!
I made him this shirt while watching "Glee" and "Dancing with the Stars." He thought it was "cool" and he wants to wear it for his party on Saturday.
Here is a close up, I wanted it to look kind of rough, not perfect, but cute, like a 5 year old little boy. If you remember, most of my projects are kind of rough, not perfect so this one turned out like I hoped.
I always take a picture of the kids on the steps the day of their birthday. These are usually the opening pages of their scrapbooks. I love this one of the boys. It is breaking my heart. Someday they are going to be huge, drinking gallons of milk at a time, talking in deep voices, playing sports and wrestling each other over the remote. Whew, makes me so glad they are young and little right now.

Watchin' My Weight Wednesday

I want to honor Parker's birthday today so no official weight watching post. I do however want to correct myself, I gave you the wrong day for "Thintervention". It is on Mondays at 10 on Bravo. I think I said it was on Tuesdays. This week was so good. They did a dance workout with the Pussycat Dolls choreographer. I love dancing, this would be a dream come true workout for me. I am still holding out for Dancing with the Stars to call me. Kind of a sympathy invitation since I am by far not a star, I think 8 weeks of dancing for hours a day would be a glorious way to get in shape. You can find more Thintervention info here.
