Happy 5th Birthday Jackson

Oh Jackson, where do I start? This year has been a HUGE year of growth for you physically, mentally and emotionally. You are my bubba, my helper, my sidekick, and my sweetheart.

I can’t write this without getting a lump in my throat because I love you so much. I’m so grateful for the bond we have, you make me laugh without even saying a word. I think we communicate mostly with our eyebrows haha.

At 5 years old J loves:

  • Star Wars( you and dad watched all of them together)
  • Riding his scooter
  • Creating things(crafting). You have made Pokemon cards, ghost buster jackets complete with name tags, yokai watches, and lots and lots of pictures.
  • Food! You’re always snacking and trying to get sweets like your mama. You love slurpies like your dad
  • Stuffed animals
  • BYU hat
  • Playing video games with dad
  • Helping with lily in anyway
  • Playing with friends/cousins

J dislikes:

  • Bed time
  • Running errands, with mom…dad can make any errand sound fun
  • Big dogs
  • Houses with alarm systems. We accidentally set my sisters off, ever since he gets so freaked when he sees an alarm box

Things I want to remember about J at 5 years old is definitely what a tender heart he has. He wants so badly to do good and to please others. His prayers are so reverent and well thought out. He constantly asks questions and is so curious about the world. He LOVES his sisters and talks about the baby daily. I’ve caught him with Lily’s new doll several times just rocking her, or singing to her! He says he can’t wait to hold the new baby.

We couldn’t have asked for a better big brother to protect our girls. J is our buddy and we can’t wait to celebrate your birthday!

We love you!

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
