Vito is 6 and my heart is glad

Before this wonderful month ends, let me share with you a few photos from my eldest son's birthday party a few weeks ago.

I wasn't supposed to post the party actually. I had decided a long time ago that when my kids turn 6, I won't post photos of them on social media anymore. But one day, soon after Vito's party, he came up to me and said, "Are you showing my party to your friends?" When I said no, he exclaimed, "But I want your friends to see my party!" So here it is, folks, a little peek at Vito's 6th birthday party!
Look at the wonderful boy! Happy birthday, Vito! 
For once, no one was fighting over blowing out the candle. Huhu, my boys are big boys na!
We know what his wish was. He's been wishing it for months!
Drowsy mama and baby with the long-awaited gift!
He can read now, folks. He read my loooong card all on his own!

And here's the birthday boy with his wish come true: a LEGO Dimensions game!

Wow. Six years. I can't believe I've been a mommy for 6 years. It still feels like yesterday. I still feel like I don't know what I'm doing. Well, I have a lot to say about this part but I'll save that for another day. For today, we celebrate Vito. And I celebrate you, my dear Loyal Readers, for being here all these years!

Thank you all so much for being there for Vito, even before he was born. Thanks for the gifts, the warm wishes, the friendship, and the love you've shown Vito. Thanks for saying hi to him when you see him in the mall, in the supermarket, at the pedia clinic, on the street, and in football stadiums. We really truly do feel your love and we are so grateful! Apparently, Vito is grateful, too, because he wanted you to be a part of his birthday celebration. Thank you and God bless you for making him feel so loved!

Let's take a walk down memory lane! Here is Vito's...
