Johnny turned six years old this Saturday. It's hard to imagine that my baby boy is growing up so fast! John is a funny little character. He is very sharp, and has always had a big vocabulary for his age, which makes for some hilarious quotes from him.
Since I had just had the new baby three days earlier, we had a very low-key birthday. John brought his presents to our bedroom so I could watch him opening them from bed. Normally, I make the kids whatever they want for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on their birthday, but since I was not able to cook him the special breakfast he wanted, he took a rain check on that for another time. After breakfast, my husband took all the kids to the park while I rested some more. Then just him and John went to ride kiddie go-karts at a fun park nearby, and do a couple of rounds of airhockey. For lunch, my husband made hot dogs for everyone, as per John's request. The kids played together in the afternoon, and I was able to make tacos for dinner with the help of a friend from church. Overall, a very quiet day. We had cake at church the next day in honor of his birthday, too, which was nice.
John was the one who got to cut Anna's cord after she was born, since he was the birthday boy. He was pretty excited about that.

Remember when Solomon found the money in the wallet? He bought John a birthday gift with some of it.
They were slides of pictures from NASA that can be viewed with this little viewer the kids already had. John loved it, as he often pretends to be an astronaut. In fact, he is pretending to be something or other (fireman, doctor, astronaut, cowboy, knight, etc.) pretty much every single day.
Isaac, John, and Solomon. The girls were all still sleeping.
I sewed him these camo pajamas. They are a little big on him, but I guess that's good since I'm sure he won't want to part with them for quite some time. He does not like giving up outgrown clothes.
