Happy Birthday Jonas! You were born cool.
Jonas turned 6 this week (sniff) and I'm predicting it's going to be the year he blossoms.
Every year, he becomes more and more outgoing and gains a little self-confidence. In the past couple of years, he's come so far from the little boy who would hide behind my leg at every opportunity. He's becoming more comfortable talking to strangers and he's learning to rely less on his brothers to do his socializing for him and standing more and more on his own two feet.
We celebrated the big No. 6 with a bowling party. Wow, bowling parties are crazy. My advice to parents considering one would be to keep the guest list as small as possible. Getting 15 pairs of bowling shoes, balls, lanes, and bumpers, then pizza, and soda and cake and presents together at a bowling alley is pretty chaotic. But, a wonderful and very loud chaos that serves for awesome fun!
Jonas loved every minute of it and didn't notice my hair getting grayer by the minute.
He finally requested a guitar cake, so of course, I made him one. Actually, I made my mom decorate this one, but it still counts.
This was the easiest cake I've ever made. Directions are available here: THANKS BETTY CROCKER!
Jonas is still the rocker and he requested an iPod and a microphone for his birthday. He got both and is now happily jamming to AC/DC in the basement. I'm hoping the batteries die soon, but also LOVE his passion for music. Lessons are in his near future.
Yup, he's officially a big KID now, a fact he tells me about on a near daily basis. He start kindergarten in a few weeks and whereas last year I was hesitant, this year I'm excited for him to start because I know he's 100 percent ready and will thrive.
I can't wait to watch him grow this year and see him bloom. He's one awesome kid!
