Number 2 Turns 5

Five years ago yesterday, my husband delivered Number 2 at the hospital with no help from medical staff. We barely made it as this was my shortest labor to date! This boy entered the world swiftly, and with gusto--a characteristic which continues to mark his burgeoning personality. We opted for keeping the festivities low key yesterday, celebrating with family, and with an afternoon at the pool. His dad, brothers, and I took him out to breakfast, and while unconventional, the birthday boy had a fun time blowing out the candle we lit in his bowl of cream of wheat.
