Five years ago at 10:53 p.m. our first child, Brady Andrew Cruthirds, was born at Gulf Coast Medical Center in Biloxi, MS. He weighed in at a whopping 10 lbs 8 ozs and was 22 inches long! WOW!!! I CANNOT believe it's been five years! It's incredible to look back over these past five years and see how much he has grown and changed in such a short time. It's also funny to look back and see how much our lives have changed since then......five years, three cars, a move, and oh yeah three kids later, lol!!! WOW!! We are so blessed God chose us to be Brady's parents! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRADY!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!
Brady got to celebrate his birthday all day long! He started morning with a "birthday present" and one small gift. I sent cupcakes to school and he got to wear the "birthday hat" and his teacher set aside a special time for his class to help him celebrate. Later that day when he got home, we let him search through the house for a "hidden treasure". He thought that was GREAT! Andy & I laughed at all of the creative places he searched. Then this afternoon Andy cooked out on the grill while the kids and I played in the backyard. After dinner, we had a small cake and then Brady got to open one last present. He was soooo excited all day.....he kept asking, "when do I get to be 6?" I'm hoping that he just enjoyed all the fun and special treatment and that he really doesn't want to hurry up and grow-up so fast!! Oh yeah, just in case you haven't noticed....Brady is really into Star Wars!
