Joseph turned 5 on December 22, Wow, it seems like only yesterday that we went to the hospital on the 22 of December at 7:00PM planning for my typical 18+ hour deliveries to give our Joseph Smith a December 23 birthday to share with the Prophet. Of course, the best laid plans of mice and pregnant women... he came 20 minutes before midnight.Now he's 5, his, I swear, silver Christmas hair is blond and his sober little personality charms and comforts us.
He climbed up on the bar stool a year or so ago with a dish towel cape around his shoulders and said, "Mom, I'm Super man."
I smiled at him, he's so serious about everything, and said, "I know."
"Mom, I can fly" he says as he stands up and jumps off the bar stool. He lands and climbs back up on the bar stool, "Mom, I'm Super man, he says.
"I know" I reply.
"I can't fly, but I'm still Super man."
Joseph you'll always be my high flying Super man. Here are some pictures of Joseph's Super hero birthday party. All of his super hero pals are cousins and brothers.
