My little boy is 6

In fact, he turned 6 a couple of weeks ago but we've been so busy with summer holidays that I haven't had a chance to post until now.

We had the birthday party over a month ago so that it could be held before school broke up (and all his friends disappeared on their family holidays).

There was:
  • Lots of little boys full of energy and MASSES of testosterone. (What is it with little boys and rough play???)
  • A house full of balloons
  • A MASSIVE cake
  • A magician and a witch
  • Loving family
  • Lots of love and laughter
Happy birthday Jake.
We are so proud of the person you are becoming.
Kind, sensitive, intelligent and very loving.

With much love,
Mum xxx

Sounds like a wonderful party! I just love that Homer/Madeline photo tradition. Blog again soon (please), I've missed your site.

Happy Birthday to Jake!

I also love the photos you take with Homer/Madeline, what a wonderful idea, wish I had thought of that but too late now (mine are coming up 3 and 5). We saw a new born baby the other day and I was amazed at how small they are, my boys are so big and boisterous, I can't imagine them so tiny anymore.

All the best, Beth

oh happy birthday jake!!!! I agree boys have sooo much energy! and having boy/girl twins lets you see the difference! one is happily sitting with a book and the other one is tearing around, finding something to climb over/destroy/knock over!!!

Happy birthday Jake, 6 sounds so grown. I know - little boys are a little physical to say the least
