Happy Birthday Jesse!


Today is the day, my baby boy turns the big FIVE. I really can't believe it. Not that he isn't such a mature guy anyway, but 5 just sounds so old. Preschool is almost over, and kindergarten is right around the corner. Not sure if I'm ready for him to get on that big yellow bus...

Jesse Ignacio was born at 9:38am on March 17, 2004. He weighed 8 pounds 9 ounces and was 21.5 inches long. In the spirit of the day he was born with red hair, although I washed it too hard a week later and it all fell out. So, now he has a head full of golden blond hair. His eyes are the most gorgeous color - not blue, not green, not gray - just beautiful.

Mr. Jesse is just such a sweetheart - although, in the last year he has really learned to stand his ground. The little boy who wouldn't leave my side has been known to boss the big kids on the street around if they aren't doing right by him.

His future plans include being an army man, maybe a baby doctor, oh, and never moving out of our house. He plans to live with me all his life. Although, he is quite confused about the bed situation. You know "grown up men can't sleep in little beds" like his.

He has brought so much joy and laughter to our home. We are so "lucky" to have him. Happy 5th Birthday Jesse Nacho - we love you!!!
