It’s been almost a year since Kenimer was dismissed from speech therapy. Much to my delight he kept a few cute-isms in his speech. I feel a bit of grief when he self-corrects some words because its just so darn cute.<br />
One of our faves: <strong>Birp-Pay</strong>- translation: Birthday.<br />
September 14, is the grand day! Though we celebrated with a party on Sunday (another post) we are also continuing the festivities today. He started off the morning with a breakfast date with daddy before school. Then some school fun and two friend visits during the day! We commemorated his birthday with a family dinner/party tonight!<br />
I snapped these right before heading out to his Birp-Pay party!<br />
I scored this vintage blue suitcase Saturday at an estate sale. It was under a dollar. Isn’t it lovely? The suitcase held the goody bags for his party. The blue shirt he is sporting was given to me by my hubands mother. It was <em>my husband’s</em> when he was five! It has a vintage sears tag in it and is’s a size 5. My mother-in-law knows how I love old things, so she periodically surprises me with things from Shannon’s childhood that are <em>true</em> vintage. I treasure these items!<br />
Kenimer is a true joy these days. The best part about planning his party was how enthused he was about it all. He told me a million times he had the best birp-pay and that I was the best mommy ever! He is really growing up and his personality is awesome! He is such a people-person, outgoing and friendly (most of the time)! <br />
As of lately he has been learning about respect, We wrote and recorded a childrens song called R.E.S.P.E.C.T. a few weeks ago for a project and he knows every word. He is also quick to tell you that you’re not showing respect. <br />
Example: I interrupted him recently and he said “<em>Mama, your <strong>rupting</strong> me. That’s not showing respect.</em>” I apologized and validated his point, when he said “<em>It’s ok mama, God still loves you when you make a <strong>atake</strong></em>” (mistake). I thanked him for the reassurance. <br />
He still has his fair share of mistakes and disrespectful moments but he desires to please God and that is absolutely precious. He writes his name beautifully and is beginning to learn to read. He is beyond amazing and I love him dearly! I can’t believe he is five! Oh – did I mention that he asked me if I would take some pictures of him with the balloons, he said “<em>I want to model for you!</em>” What?! He is the bomb!<br />

Are you nuts?
Let's be honest, most of us can say there was at least one moment in your life where you've wondered; Am I nuts? it could have been an obsession about something, prolonged sadness, extreme sensitivity or the " Why can't I just get over this" nagging question.
