On the night before you turn 5......of course it is only fitting that you make a funny face :)
Sweet Little Marshall.....Happy Happy Birthday to you!!!! You are FIVE...a whole hand and a whole lot of personality!!!!
It is hard to believe that you are five!!! Time really has gone by too fast. It seems like just yesterday I was beside myself, as you cried all.day.long and then once you hit the toddler phase, gone was the colic and out came my happy, smiley guy and that is how you remain. You are filled with so much spirit and spunk. You keep us laughing!
You are always wearing a smile. Just looking at you makes me and others smile. You are so expressive in all you do and say....and you know how to use your eyes, good looks and charm to get what you want! Even your preschool teacher says "He is perfect". You know how to work it little man!!!
You are so loving and kind-hearted. You always find a new person to talk to and become friends with, no matter where we are. You are so friendly and personable and quite the peace keeper. Sharing and helping are two of your biggest strengths. When Haddie is frustrated and needs help or wants your toys, you are quick to help and share. You are a great big brother....always ready to give a hug and kiss and sweet words. You are also such a great big brother...you look up to Brayden so much, taking interest in anything he is interested in. You have become such an amazing lego builder---it is amazing to see what you can build and create---with directions and on your own. You still love Paw Patrol....you were so excited when grandma got you the new plane and puppies! You have started to become interested in pokemon cards but still have a big place in your heart for all kinds of fire and recuse vehicles and diggers!!!
You love to watch TV....if you were allowed to, you could snuggle up and watch show after show.....but since that is not the case you relish the TV that is allowed....and I enjoy the snuggles! You still love to snuggle each night after prayers....and I love it too. Your tiny blankets...are now rags, but you keep them close every night along with Killer (a comical name for your alien from Disney).
You are quite the comic...always coming up with witty and comical things to say. You keep us on our toes and use your words to manipulate what you want. Marshall, you are still quite the eater, you eat almost all good and healthy things, but shy away from mac and cheese and other kids food, which is A-OK with me! You try to be a good role model for your brother and sister at dinner--wish I could say it is rubbing off....but not yet. For being such an amazing eater, you are still on the small size.....however you are into size 5 which is spot on. And even though you may not be the tallest or biggest kiddo in your class...I would venture to say you have the biggest heart, smile and personality!!
You are getting smarter by the second. You know your letters and love sharing songs and things that you are learning at school with us. You also have amazing art skills and such a creative memory....like your pumpkin that has bat wings and rocket blasters!!!
You love going to the library, the zoo and legoland....really you enjoy all adventures! I of course get a little sad, as each year goes by...since they are going too fast....but I must say I am so excited to watch you grow and learn and develop into the little charmer that you are!!!!
I am so thankful that God gave us you....the one and only you....you are so special and I love that God gave me the important job of bring your mommy! Happiest of birthdays to you, my little Marsh man....I love you to the moon and back!!!!!!
