Little Joey, is not so little any more. Last week he turned 6! I can hardly believe it. At school he insists that his teacher calls him Joseph, he rides a bike without training wheels and he was the star of the show at his last piano recital. Even though he has so many of the twerpy traits of a five or six-year-old boy, luckily for me, he is still very sweet. During a dinner conversation about the Love Languages, he self diagnosed as one who loves words of affirmation (he always writes me love notes and has asked why I don't write him many) and physical touch. He then proceeded to run from seat to seat at the table and give everyone hugs. His sweet example was catching and soon all the boys were hugging everyone, including one of Elijah's friends who was at dinner for that night. Pretty funny.
Joey had a rockin' "Gold Ninja Party." He was a delightful birthday boy. He helped plan and prepare for the party was thrilled with everything that we did, even if it didn't go exactly as planned. He was very polite to all his friends, he shared will, said thank you to everyone and even walked each of them to the door when it was time to go. I'm so proud of the way he conducted himself.
