My boy turned six recently.
Josiah shares a birthday with his Uncle Brandon, and this was the very first year they got to celebrate together. In fact, it's the first time he's ever celebrated a birthday with any extended family.
He's a little guy for his age, but he makes up for it with energy and physical strength. Josiah weighs 36 pounds (3rd percentile!), but he can do 10 pull-ups, hold a perfect head stand for 20 seconds, and has a very visible six-pack on his lean mean body. We put the kid in gymnastics this year. It might be his destiny.
But really, he would rather just play soccer.
I'm a sucker for my little buddy's smile. Sure am glad he is in my life.
