Happy 6th Birthday!

Someone has been super excited for his birthday to arrive this year!  It arrived a few days early with a triple chocolate cake and lots of Batman!



Owen is such a sweet boy and we are so proud of the young man he is becoming...even if he is growing up way too fast.  He is compassionate and loving.  He loves to give gifts.  He wants to understand how everything works and will question until he's got it.  Our quiet boy who we thought was never going to talk is still making up for lost quiet time...especially in the car and during movies!  He's a great helper inside and outside of the house.  He is a great bike rider and loves his newly found independence.  He is a great reader and works hard with his reading, math and piano.  He loves Jesus, our family, the Tar Heels and superheros...Superman and Batman top his list, but he loves them all.  He is very responsible...wakes up to an alarm clock and gets himself all ready for the day.  I am amazed at how much he matured this past year.  He learned so much in kindergarten and is excited for first grade.

The 6 tops things for Owen right now...
1. Spaghetti
2. Pizza
3. Lucky Charms
4. Fruit
5. Green Peppers
6. Cheese
1. Swimming
2. Bike Riding
3. Working with tools
4. Baseball
5. Drawing and coloring
6. Reading

Owen, Mommy, Daddy and Anderson love you so very much.  God has blessed our lives with you and your wonderful spirit and we know God has big plans for you and can't wait to see what they are.  You are an awesome big brother and we are so proud to call you our son.

Evan, Mommy and Daddy love you so very much and miss you everyday.  I often wonder what your personality would be like and how you and Owen would interact and what our family would be like with you here.  I wonder if you'd be risk averse like Owen or a risk taker like Anderson.  I had so many dreams of you and Owen riding your bikes down the street together, sharing late night giggles and tricking people by switching places.  I still grieve those dreams.  I treasure the few short hours we had with you and long to hold you again.  You would be so proud of Owen and how much he has grown this past year.  He knows you are  his twin and in heaven and that he'll be reunited with you one day...he's planning on tricking people by switching places, but I don't know if that will work in heaven.  Owen and Anderson love you as much as mommy and daddy do.  You will always be a part of our family and a part of our hearts.

Great big hugs and birthday wishes to our big 6 year old boys!
