N is 6!

My second child turned 6 last week!

He has had a love of construction vehicles for most of his life, so when I saw this cake in a recent Family Fun magazine, I knew I had to make it for him this year! He loved it, and I'm happy with the way it turned out.

N has an enthusiasm for life, boundless energy, a positive spirit and a deep love for his family.

He has a strong attachment to a scruffy stuffed lamb named Mickey and has an imaginary friend named May who has been part of his life for as long as I can remember. He & his brother also have a very elaborate imaginary land that they play in called "MickeyLand" where the most amazing things occur (like a real dinosaur park, and the ability to fly!)

He loves to snuggle and is free with hugs and kisses. He has to be on the move at all times, and doesn't have much patience for anything that requires him to sit still. He loves to dig in the backyard and build small structures.

He is extremely helpful, and will be the first to volunteer when help is needed. He often runs through the house when he hears his name called, and shouts "At Your Service!!" when asked to complete a task. When L was born, he put himself in charge of making sure I always had a drink so I could have plenty of "mommy milk."

His brother is his best friend, and he can't fathom the idea of spending much time apart from him. He has told me all year that the only reason he bothers with the enrichment program is so that he can spend lunch and recess with his brother. He is the first to jump into my husband's arms when he comes home at night to welcome him home.

Six years ago we welcomed him into the world and I'm grateful to be his mom!


  1. Wow....I *can't believe* he is 6!!! How did that happen so fast?!!!

    I'm glad he had such a great day - what a sweet post about an awesome kid!

    Love the cake. N sounds like a delightful kid. I wish Rocky could play with BOTH your sons. I wish Rocky had a brother many times. (well, he has a brother, but you know what I mean)
