Since we are now counting down to less than a month before baby #3 arrives, we’ve been in a ‘rush’ to get through a few things. One of these being Roman’s birthday. There’s anxiety that comes wrapped with any occasions that take place 3 weeks before your baby is due, especially when it’s your son’s birthday!
Thankfully, we made it through his birthday without a new baby and managed to have our attention completely focused on him. And when I got the chance to stop, slow down, and focus it makes me all weepy that he’s growing up.
What a difference a year makes!
From 5 years old to 6 years, you can certainly see a lot of baby has left him, and the ‘mature’ big boy is shining through.
He and his dad have the exact same sense of humor.
This was his first year of really getting into sports.
Christmas keeps getting better and better each year!
And we enjoyed our holiday traditions along with a SUUUUUPER long winter.
On January 2, I created our own holiday: Rock Star Day. We put on as many tattoos as possible, custom decorate our t-shirts, and get to wear crazy hair while rocking out on their instruments.
These guys loved it. Which I am now sure will come back to bite me. They don’t let me forget things like this and will likely expect to do it for years to come….
Spending time with his family, friends, and learning how to dance Super Hero style was all part of his 6th year.
And, the very first lost tooth!
This year hasn’t changed his relationship with his brother, who he claims is is best friend. They still are as close as ever. You know I was worried about that when he first started kindergarten
. Plus, finding out we are having another buddy for him to play with has been an extra special part of this year!

Turning Six has been fun for all of us!
My dear sweet Roman, You continue to light up my life. As my firstborn child you are so very special to me in that we learn a lot of things together. I think you’re handling it pretty well, and one day, I hope you can look back and say the same for me.
It’s always fun and sad and exciting and a happy moment to think of you growing up. This very last photo really captures your sweet spirit, your good natured attitude, and just how dynamic you truly are.
I love you my big little man. Happy Birthday!
