As I have said repeatedly over the last few days--I CANNOT believe he is five. Five years did not come easily to us. Still we made it in one piece and he is doing better than ANYONE could imagine. It is God who gets the glory for this amazing miracle that is Asher.
OK so I am done with the gushing. Now onto the details of this historic day.
The actual day of the birthday was really not all that exciting. Since Daddy was not going to be in town for either of the boys birthdays we mainly celebrated on Friday. We had a birthday dinner at Qdoba and then continued the celebration with cake, presents, and balloons at home. Asher was very adamant about the balloons. He wanted balloons in every room of the house. I told him I would take him and his brother to Dollar Tree where they could each choose one balloon. Asher was content with that conclusion. That night Asher was very excited to receive a matching Cars scooter and helmet for his main birthday gift. The day ended with Asher saying, "This was the best day ever."

After school we had an elaborate meal of chicken nuggets and rice with veggies (one of his favorite dinners). Once they had both cleared their plates, Asher was given one more birthday gift: a Thomas blanket.

Even though yesterday was a simple day it was nice. Asher seemed content throughout the whole day. I think he is just excited to finally be five.
Tonight he told his friend he was five. She said, "No your not." He ran to me and said, "Mom, am I five?" I reassured him he really was five. He smiled ran back to his friend and said, "I am too five." I heard her say, "Oh." How cute.
|Asher loves his train so much that he was starting to go to sleep with the toy.|
I am sorry on posting so late tonight. Today was a very busy day. Yet I am not complaining. Time seems to go by so slow when Adam is gone, so I enjoy days that speed by with busyness.
