Birthday Week part 2- Look Who's 5!

Look at my SCARY Pirates!
Yeah, we are never going to take take over the world, we are too cute and cuddly.

It's taken me a while to finish this post. Sorry about that. BUT here it is, my very first baby boy turned 5!!!!! At birth he weighed 7#'s 9 oz and he was 20 (maybe 20.5) inches long. At his 5 year well child check he was 44.09 #'s ( I guess that .09 is important) and he was 45 inches tall. That's 73rd percentile for weight and 88th for height. All in all he is a pretty perfect 5 year old.

This is our excited boy getting ready to open his gifts from his Mom and Dad on his "Real" Birthday.

Also on his actual birthday we went to visit the Fire Station with one of our cousins and his Mommy and Grandma Turner.
J was told that this was the Captains seat in the fire truck and he talked for days about how he was "Fire Captain J" and I was firefighter Mommy.

We parted ways with with our family and headed to the store to pick up a couple of things. Tomatoes were no on the list, but I took my eyes off of B for a second and he found a tomato and bit into it. Well, I took it away and told him that he can't eat food we haven't purchased....and I added that tomato to my list of things to buy....then he picked up a second tomato and bit into it as well. Needless to say, we bought two tomatoes and my boys happily ate them in the car while we drove to our next destination.
While we were at the store Grandma called and said that she and Aunt Wendy had decided to go to lunch at Cabelas, since I had never been to Cabelas (despite living across the freeway from it for 7 years) I decided we would be wild and crazy and we would go!

When we walked in the greeter at the door gave me a handful of tokens to use at the shooting gallery.
J liked to shoot, not at anything in particular, just random shooting. B's arms didn't seem long enough to reach the trigger on the guns, but he was pretty happy to pretend that holding the back of the gun did something.
For J's birthday I made him some Pirate dress up clothes. When he unwrapped them he he was less than impressed, in fact he told me that I had ruined his pants (which had holes in the knees, I thought I was re-purposing them) but a few days later he decided that his new pirate outfit was awesome. This is a picture of what he looked like when he went to school.....dressed as a pirate.

The Saturday after our birthdays it snowed and they boys enjoyed doing some service for our neighbors.
I can't believe that my baby is 5, he was a little freaked out about being 5 but he has gotten used to it and now- 3 weeks later- he is really enjoying it.
