Happy Birthday, Jacko!

Sleepy Kid
Jacko's first night home from the hospital, 2008
This morning opening presents, 2011

I am not overly sentimental, but I can't remember what life was like without my Jacko. I have become a better person and learned a lot about myself through parenting him. 

Today we are celebrating with birthday donuts, a showing of Cars 2, fancy dinner wherever Jacko wants, and a late-night showing of "the movie where Bumblebee turns into a car." The boy loves Transformers.

And for those who are curious, the dress-up trunk was a hit—Jack loves it and I love that it cost less than $20 total!

Leave Jacko a birthday message in the comments.
You might get a specialized response direct from the birthday boy!


  1. Tell Jack that Gpa and Gwamma and the Aunties love him very much....and happy birthday.

  2. Happy Birthday Jacko! You have always been a stud and you're just getting so so big. I hope you have fun with your dress ups and your special movie time. Jacko is the best-o!

  3. I remember coming to visit you in the hospital when Jack was born - I actually did a blog post about it!

    That suitcase full of dress up clothes is so dang brilliant :)

    Happy birthday Jack!

  4. Happy birthday, Jack! It's been so great to watch you get bigger and become such a great kid. I have a surprise for you that you can get on Saturday.

  5. Happiest of Birthdays, Jacko! May your day be full of robots and firetrucks.
