Oh How You've Grown Up!

My sweet baby boy is now 6 years old, and I can't believe the time is going so fast. I have taken an unintentional sabbatical from blogging (oops), but I'm coming back because I just can't resist talking about my boy.

Dear Cobb, you are such a grown up boy now. Six year old and heading off to Kindergarten. We can no longer hold you in the air with one hand (well, maybe daddy still can).

We can no longer dress you up like James Dean or turn you into a bunny at Easter. . .

You no longer sit on tops of pillows and chat (baby talk) to daddy.

But now we get the joy of your big bear hugs and laughter, and we get to have real conversations with our big boy. You have so many interesting things to say, you make everything more fun, and you have a sweet demeanor that draws people to you. It's fun to see you enjoying your friends, wrestling with daddy, or just being still with a book. I am so proud of you, the way you treat others, the way you love your brother & sister, and the way you enjoy your little life. I have learned a lot from you! I will pray that your heart would continue to grow more and more like Christ. I can see that happening already. I thank God that he gave you to your daddy and me. Thanks Cobb! Love, your mama
