Happy 5th Birthday Jack!


Today, my little one turns 5!

The teacher sent home this note to ask us to write just two memories for each year of Jack's life for her to read to the class today. Here's what we said:

Birth to one year
Jack was born one week early at 12:48pm. He was 8lb and 12 oz and 20 inches long. He got his first passport at four weeks and went to France, Germany, and England, as well as New Orleans and North Carolina all before he was 3 months old! Jack did not like to crawl so he started walking at 10 months!

One year to two years
Jack spoke more spanish than english when he started talking. Jack talked a lot and very early. Whenever he said the word, "Baa", that meant that he wanted to watch The Wiggles.

Two years to three years
Jack saw his first movie in the theatre. It was "Cars". Jack loved to do somersaults on the balance beam at the Little Gym. Jack became a big brother to Eva.

Three years to four years
Jack joined the Grasshoppers, his first soccer team and played two seasons. Jack went to Philadelphia and saw Constitution Hall and the Liberty Bell (which Jack called the Delivery Bell).

Four years to five years
Jack celebrated his fourth birthday at DisneyWorld. Goofy danced around the restaurant with his cake. He also got to fight Darth Vader with a light sabre. Jack is a very funny person and is a great joke teller. He makes us laugh all the time.

I could go on all day about how great Jack is and how lucky I am to be his Mommy. I'll just say, a very Happy Birthday to my little Baby Duck!!!! I love you so much!!!!

I still remember taking Jack to the Kinko's for his 3 week old Passport Photo. They thought the passport was for you, for who in the world would need a passport for a three week old?!? They OBVIOUSLY don't know you!!
