I cannot believe my son is six years old today. The picture above is my son when he was three months old surrounded by my cookbooks:-) When I look at him now it is a reminder of how fast time moves. It seems like just yesterday when I carried him in my belly and was so sick during my pregnancy that even the Taco Bell logo and the commercials made me nauseous, LOL. Whenever I would eat foods Kaden liked, he would turn flips in my belly.
Fast forward six years later and he has grown into an amazing little boy. Since my son is visiting his Dad on his actual birthday, we celebrated on Thursday with dinner at one of his favorite restaurants, California Pizza Kitchen. During the early part of the day,I took cupcakes to my son's school so that he could celebrate his special day with all of his friends.
I surprised him after dinner with a cake of one of his favorite characters: Angry Birds. He loves so many characters, but his two favorites are Angry Birds and Sponge Bob. He was thrilled with his cake and all of his presents. His favorite gift of the night was his robofish:-) I knew I had to get one because we can't seem to keep real goldfish alive in our house. I was so thrilled to see the happiness all over my son's face as we celebrated the day he was born.
My son is the apple of my eye:-)
Cupcakes at school and lots of happy children!
Throwback photo of Kaden and I. I gained close to 100 pounds when I was pregnant. On this photo I hadn't lost all of it yet. It took me close to 7 months to get it all off. He was worth every bit of discomfort and a few extra pounds.
Delicious bread and olive oil
Field Greens, walnuts, pears and Gorgonzola cheese
The works pizza
White pizza with spinach
Kaden and his little cousin are all smiles:-)
Kaden and his little buddies had a great time. And the three of them together were a handful, LOL.
We lit the candles and sang happy birthday
My little guy wanted to have the bird:-)
Lots of presents
Kaden is so in love with with his Robofish. But I have a couple of surprises for him that he doesn't know about yet. he is going to be so excited!
Kaden is so happy! This photo is blurry because the camera battery started to die, but I kept snapping away:-)
This cake was absolutely delicious
Happy Birthday to the most amazing son ever!
