I can't believe that today's the day I became the mom of a 6 year old. 6 years ago today my precious Micah was born. TIme has gone by so much quicker than I ever would have imagined. Besides turning 6, in a few weeks he'll be entering kindergarten and I'll officially be the mom of a school-age child. After being a mom of toddlers and preschoolers for so long, this feels very surreal.
Since we actually had his birthday party back in May so he could invite his school friends, we just made this day into a fun evening for him. Jason and I were at YEC this weekend and just got home this afternoon. Tonight we stopped by our niece's birthday party- she is exactly 3 years older than Micah to the day- then took Micah to eat a a restaurant of his choosing and visited Cold Stone Creamery for dessert. I even let him stay up a bit later to play with his new Batman and Spiderman "figgers." I think he had a fun time overall.
Since I'm blogging now, I thought I might dedicate this post to my first-born child.
Your life is an amazing blessing to daddy and me. Your knowledge and vocabulary never cease to amaze us. You soak up new information like a sponge and ask the incredibly thoughtful questions for a child your age. Even though you haven't started "real" school yet, you can read a lot of words, most of them we haven't even taught you- you just seem to know. Learning comes very naturally to you. The Lord has blessed you with a great mind and I pray everyday that you will use your gifts and abilities to his glory for all of your days.
You can be quite reserved when you meet new people, which is strange for daddy and me because we enjoy being social, but once you've warmed up to someone, you hardly stop talking to them long enough for them to respond! I can see that you usually try hard to be a good example of Christ's love to Cade and Missy and that you try to be the best example you can be to them. You have such a sharp mind and you're developing quite a good sense of humor, too.
Most importantly, I can see the Lord working in your life, taking you on the beginning of your journey of faith. He has begun a wonderful work in you and he will be faithful to complete it. My prayer is that you love the Lord with all your heart, soul, and mind and that your life brings glory to him forever.
I love you, baby!
PS- Happy birthday, Codie!! Love you!
