Here is Porter with his Stars wars cake! I had to laugh because my kids like me have never really seen Star wars, but it was all he wanted and all he could talk about. He loved it but was bummed that the legs didn't move... Sorry son I'm not going to get in to mechanical cakes!

I can't believe he is five! Here are some facts and things we LOVE about Porter:
  • I think he is going to one day legally change his name to Porter Cowboy, he loves everything  and when asked his name Porter Cowboy is what you get.
  • We thought we were going to loose him at six months old, when he had his Craniosynostosis surgery. One of the scariest things I've ever experienced. We have been so blessed that he did so well and continues to do well.
  • If you ask him about his scar on his head he will tell you a long story about how Parker hit him in the head with a hockey stick and gave him that scar....?
  • He loves to play independently, he will find one thing whether it is cars or his soldiers and play by himself for hours.
  • Some of his favorite toys are cars, his little green soldiers, his horses and cowboy things of course, dinasours, and his fighter jets.
  • He loves all sports, but is really good at basketball. He is excited to start T-ball here in a few weeks.
  • He has inherited some of his father's OCD... it really is quiet annoying. He likes things a certain way and doesn't handle change well. For example when he is coloring all of the crayons have to be in a certain order and in a line, if someone needs a color he has, he can't handle it... thus we have a huge bucket of crayon in our house to eliminate any fighting over the yellow crayon. :)
  • His favorite color is green.
  • some of his favorite foods are, cheese roll ups, any and all things breakfast, steak and green beans and broccoli.
  • He is our story teller and comedian, for a kid who didn't say anything other than screams till he was almost three we sure can't seem to get him to be quiet now!!
  • He loves to sing and be silly, he loves to give hugs and kisses.
  • He loves babies, and there is rarely a prayer that is said by him in which he doesn't pray for more siblings....(his Dad is so proud)
  • He is our tough guy, he is always trying to wrestle or box his siblings and he is the one that if he gets hurt he most often just shruggs it off.
We are so very blessed to have Porter part of our family, he brings joy and comedy into it daily. He is such a character and wesure do love him and hope he had a wonderful birthday and felt how much we love him!
