Happy Birthday, Roen...

Roen almost always has a smile on his face. His overall demeanor is sweet, pleasing and most of the time I find myself squeezing and kissing him. He wakes up with a smile and goes to bed with a smile. When Remi is not at school, you will find Roen by his side outside playing... usually with the neighbor girls. Roen prefers to be with other people over being alone. He is still a great sleeper but wakes up most nights and crawls into bed with us. Since Remi no longer does this, I kind of like that my baby still does. He goes to bed by 7:30 every night and wakes up around 7-7:30. If it gets much past 7:30 Roen will ask me to put him to bed. This little boy loves- and always has- sleeping!

Roen is also very silly. He loves saying the most random, silliest thing (usually about tooting) he can think of and just dies laughing! Roen is really just full of smiles and laughs!

Roen tends to be my more sensitive child. He cries easily and truly hates getting into trouble. At 5, he seems to have quite a little temper and right now, patience is most definitely not his strong suite. He also goes to bed hungry often because if it's not PB&J, spaghetti or tacos, he likes to complain. Remi and Roen fight ALL THE TIME. I guess this is just a brother thing that will most likely never pass and I have just come to the conclusion that this is how they 'love' each other.

Roen is our squishy little sunshine. I cannot tell you how many times I will be right in the middle of a bad day/meltdown/bad mood and Roen will say in his soft little voice, 'Momma, I love you'. This little boy knows when his momma needs a little love and he is constantly bringing it into my life.

I love you to the moon and back, my little sunshine!

And here is my Remi Roo at 5 years old. In the same shirt- I tried to put the same shorts on Roen but they were a bit big in the waist, which is funny because the shirt looks a lot smaller on Roen than it did Remi!

Happy Birthday Roen! What a sweet memorable post. I just smiled when I saw the first picture...I have seen that look on Micah's face lots of times (minus the drool). Your life is full and I know you feel so blessed. Roen has such a big heart and I can't wait to squeeze the life out of him!! Wishing him a wonderful day filled with all things that he loves! Thanks for sharing! Love you all.

It's me again....just couldn't help but mention how sweet little Remi looks in his 5 year old picture. Crazy to think that he is almost 7! Yikes....they are making me old!
