Garrett's Birthday Part II

So now the parties are over and I can reflect on the day. Garrett and I were able to spend the day together to go to Build-A-Bear Workshop and have lunch out. As I was sitting across from him at lunch I was just watching him and thinking about how much he has changed. Its a little sad to remember how much he loved me to carry him and cuddle with him. He used to suck his thumb and carry around two blankeys and a dog. He is a completely different person now, just since August. He saw someone sucking their thumb in August and decided that looked silly so he instantly stopped sucking his. He only asks for his blankeys once in a while now. He doesn't really ask to cuddle too much now but he does ask me to read him books and he sits on my lap when I do. I think that is his way of keeping that going. He behaved so well and mature today, I hope this is because he turned five. You can't go backwards once you start behaving, right?
