f i v e {worth waiting for}

Your birthday takes forever to get here, when you're almost 5.  

Months before, you make a list of what you want. You give instructions to your family about how they should hide and then jump out and yell, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!"
 You talk about turning 5, everyday!
 You even make last minute changes to your list.
Your mom doesn't really know where to find an invisible cape or an underwater laser gun.
 So she finds some other things she knows you will really love.
 And it turns out, she is exactly right.
Turning 5 is worth the wait.  And you couldn't be more pleased that all your planning paid off.
Happy Birthday sweet Owen!  You were born a week late and definitely worth the wait too.
You say the funniest things that make us all laugh. You are happy and smart and fun to be with and a complete joy to our family.  
We love you!!!!

Cute pics! Owen's wish list reminds me a lot of Kian's. (If I ever find an invisible cloak hidden amongst the average every day cloaks, you'll be the first one I tell). Happy Birthday Owen!

I read "underwear" laser gun b/f realizing it was "underwater" (I've taken my contacts out for the night): I was thinking that Owen might have imagined the most perfect boy invention of all time! :) Looks like he had a wonderful day. Sweet camo watch. Happy B-day Owen!

I can't believe it's been five years since he was born...crazy! He is darling--an exact 50/50 mix of you and Mark. Looks like a fun bday!
