Piglet is 6 years old. 6! Wasn’t I just pregnant with him? Every year I’m amazed at how fast the time flies. This year’s birthday photos really got me. He just looks so grown up these days. I can almost glimpse the man he’s going to be. I’m not going to lie, I’m a little bit in awe. This parenting thing is bittersweet sometimes. I love that he’s growing up, but at the same time, slow down!
There have been so many milestones this year. First year in elementary school. First drop off birthday party with friends, first play date drop offs. He’s learned to read! He has glasses now. He’s playing baseball for the first time. So many firsts. I’m excited to see what year 6 will bring.
He has his first puppy (our last dog was an adult long before he came along), and now he has his first fish, a gift from mama and daddy.
He celebrated his birthday this year with an orca themed birthday party. Match and I had so much fun decorating!
So here’s to you, Piglet. Happy 6th birthday to the coolest kid I have ever known. I love your energy for life, your imagination, the way you love with all your heart, your silly dances, your vocabulary that is sometimes better than mine, the way you rock a costume just because it’s a Friday afternoon, your crazy good climbing skills, how you fall asleep laughing, and all the things that make you my favorite human. You are so loved.
