My Son's Birthday

My son, JJ, turned 6 on Saturday. I can't believe he's growing up so fast. I think he really had a great day. He gets overwhelmed pretty easily (he's developmentally delayed and we think he has some form of clear diagnosis yet), but he did pretty well yesterday. We actually kept it really casual and just had a family party. My hubby, me, JJ, and his sister Beth.

He opened his presents which was a couple of Transformers and a Mac and Lightning McQueen Lego Set (from the Disney-Pixar Movie Cars) and he was so excited. He loves that movie and his favorite character is Mac. And I gotta tell you, there aren't that many Mac toys around. He's wanted one for so long and I haven't been able to find one for him, but as soon as I saw that Lego set, I knew he would love it...and he did. The Legos were large and not many pieces so that was good. JJ and his Dad put it together and he played all day with it:

While they put the lego set together and played...I decorated the cake. I have to say I'm not much of a cake I always go with something simple. JJ loves a lot of things...Disney Movies (especially the Pixar ones), Blue's Clues, and most recently he's really been getting into action heros, mostly Superman and Batman. And since JJ's middle name is Clark...I thought what better cake than to do a superman know, like Clark Kent. :) So I simply drew a Superman logo on a 9x13 cake! Simple huh? LOL But he loved it so that's all that matters! :)

Anyways, so I think it was a good day for him and I really think this was the first year he really understood what a BIRTHDAY that made it a lot of fun!!!
