Orion is SIX! Can you believe it?! I cannot believe how big this boy is getting! I can barely pick him up! Before long he's going to be taller than his mama!
This year he celebrated with a Star Wars birthday party (much to his Daddy's excitement). We had fun decorating and dressing up, and were so pleased that we had so much of our family in attendance!
Orion and Joran share a birthday!
What a blessed boy.
Daddy got him an R2D2 toy that moves and beeps. You can imagine Orion's excitement!

Actually, his super power is reading. This kid can read anything. I just love to see him sit and read on his own for ages.
He may be academic, but Orion is also athletic. He loves to climb trees, and he has learned to climb up the doorways in the house. We're considering putting him in Tai Kwon Do soon.
Orion has lost two teeth so far! I'm worried his permanent teeth won't be as pretty as his perfect baby teeth!
He's into superheroes, Star Wars, and science. He reads a lot of books and magazines and is a never-ending font of questions. Orion loves music and likes to listen to it LOUDLY in the car. His favorite band is Five Iron Frenzy.
His fine motor skills are a weakness, but he has been working hard to improve his handwriting. He has discovered that he likes some forms of art (especially Jackson Pollock style "action painting"). He likes to help with cooking and baking. Orion is VERY helpful with his sister and is so good with babies and animals.
Orion, you are such a cool dude and I love you like crazy. Be kind and patient, and keep being passionate about things you love. Happy birthday!
