Kishawn Turns 6!

We got to celebrate Kishawn's 6th birthday!
He is growing up so fast I can't believe it!

Following my birthday tradition, I want to list 6 things I love about Kishawn in honor of his 6th birthday.

1 - He is such a cute brother to his sisters.
Especially with Kiana. Kiana loves to wrestle with him and she often asks him to go down to the basement with her to do so. He is a STRONG boy, but is always so careful with her. After charging at her from across the room, he puts his arms around her and gently lays her down on the ground to pin her down. Kiana thinks it's hilarious!
(I love this picture of him and Kiana. They have such a sweet relationship)

2 - He is a Daredevil.
We got him his first bike when he was four. It took him all of 5 minutes to learn to ride it and a week later he was jumping off ramps sometimes getting a foot or 2 of air.
His recent stunt is to jump and clear 5 steps on our backyard walkway. He lands it every time.

3 - He loves to make things and is very inventive.
Our ward primary had an activity called the 'Box Car Derby'. They told the kids to go home and have their parents help them make a car out of a box.
Kishawn came home and made a really cool airplane completely on his own. Then when the dog chewed it up, he made a car (also by himself).

4 - He loves to give hugs!
Bedtime absolutely cannot happen before he has hugged every member of the family including the dogs.

5 - He is a 'self-entertainer'.
Boredom is never a part of his life, he will always find a way to entertain himself. It makes my life easier.
6 - I get to call him my SON.
I LOVE this boy so much. He is such a joy to have around and I am so glad that he is a part of our family!!
