Jude will be 5 years old on the 21st, and I can't believe it. The last 5 years have flown by.
There have been so many wonderful memories created over the past 5 years. I can remember the day Jude popped out of my kooter and peed on me when I held him in my arms for the first time. I can remember the day he took his first steps at BJ's house, chasing after her crazy cat Tiger. I can remember his first boat ride on PoPo's boat in Rockport, Texas. I remember the day we packed up our house to move to Japan and how Jude couldn't talk for almost 3 days, because he was so upset his world had been turned upside down. I can remember it all like it was yesterday.
I can remember all the sleepless nights where I prayed and pleaded with God to let Jude sleep for more than 2 hours at a time. I remember all the sweet snuggles and animal noises he used to make. I remember how he used to mispronounce words and make them his own. I remember how he looked at the world with fascination in his eyes.
So much has been accomplished in the last 5 years. I can't wait to see what the next five years brings.
