We celebrated his birthday with two parties this year: a friend party and a family party. Eli was thrilled to spend his actual birthday with friends AND get a second party :) We also took him out to Red Robin where he got a free birthday sundae and balloon. He felt very celebrated this year, and I think I'm finally over the guilt of his thrown-together-at-the-last-minute first birthday party (it was the day after I was released from the hospital from being treated for dehydration when I was pregnant with Anna)!
Here's is photo lineup for age six!

Happy Birthday to the coolest 6 year old we know! Mommy and Daddy both love laughing with you and have so much fun as your parents. We love your tender heart and concern for the needs of others. We know you will grow up to be a good man!
