Look who's FIVE!

Five years ago today we received a most precious gift from God - Tyson Alan. You started out as such a little peanut, 5 lbs 15 1/2 ounces. You had the biggest eyes and such a tiny little head. Daddy and I were so happy when we were finally able to meet you.

Over the next year we watched you learn to roll, crawl, stand, and walk. Once you started moving, you never stopped!

The week you turned two, you became a big brother. You loved to hold your sissy and make her smile. You had your own little words for all sorts of things. Na-na-na meant garbage can, mo-co-co meant motorcycle.

Three was a very busy year for you. You went to school for the very first time. You loved learning new things and making new friends.

When you were four we went to Africa for 10 weeks. You loved all the sights and sounds. You made new friends, saw lots of animals, and spent tons of time outside. When we got back to Michigan in November, you started your second year of pre-school.

Now you are FIVE. We are so excited to see what this next year holds for you as you head off to kindergarten. Mommy and daddy love you so much. We are so blessed to have you and we thank God for keeping you safe this far!
