"Happy Six Years Old Haysie!" And "Meet Skid"

Yesterday my Haysie Baby turned six. I can't believe it. Well, ok I guess I can since he likes to act 14. But yesterday he was truly a sweet six-year-old loving his birthday. It started off with a bang. I mean a lizard. Hayes LOVES lizards and snakes, and since Tyler is not a huge fan of snakes (a screams like a little girls when he sees one fan) we got Hayes his VERY OWN pet lizard. A real live one. The liz is a Leopard Gecko named Skid. Skid because when we opened the cage we said, "Now, be very careful until he gets used to us he'll be very skittish." Hayes caught on right away and said "Skittish! Skittish is the perfect name! What does Skittish mean?" And so, he is officially Skittish, Skid for short. Or Skiddy Skiddy like Ash says, which sounds a lot like kitty kitty coming from him.

I can't get Hayes to smile nicely lately. He always wants to pull a weird face. I guess its a six-year-old smile.




He got to have his very first friend party which he really really loved and I really really loved when it was over.:)



Now, don't go judging my lizard cake. I never said I was a pretty cake maker. But I try, and I like to tell myself that counts for something. Plus, thankfully, it doesn't take much to impress a six year old boy.


Hayes is not only an obnoxious, eye-rolling teenager trapped in a little boy body who loves Sponge Bob and video games. More than all that, he is my sweet little boy who adores to be kissed and cuddled and snuggled when he thinks no one is looking. He says the most sincere, heartfelt prayers. He loves school and riding the bus and has already learned how to effectively fake sick on Sunday morning and make a miraculous come back by Sunday afternoon. He is a smart, good boy. And something I love about Hayes that I hope never changes: he is his own person. He dosen't care what anyone thinks-he knows he's cool. Now if I can just channel that knowledge for good and not evil...

That lizard is pretty cool looking. I love that other people have children who lose the ability to smile for pictures. It's not just mine! You do get major points for making that cake and having a friend party. Good job and Happy Birthday Hayes.
