Happy Birthday Ezra

I can hardly believe that my little buddy is 6 years old!  We were not going to do anything big for his birthday since last year we had a party and also since Mia was only 2 weeks old...but with a new born a round I was feeling like I was neglecting the older two a little so he ended up with a party after all.  We have a good friend that rents bounce houses and gave us a great deal for the party and party city had power ranger everything so it was super easy and fun.  Ezra ended up inviting friends from church. It was perfect, there were 7 kids that came.  It was such a hot day was the only bummer... like 110 degrees so playing in the bounce house got them hot fast.   They mostly loved the bubbles and trampoline- go figure!  He had a great birthday party, good food, company, and fun presents!

Ezra is such a sweet boy.  He just does not do things to be "bad".  He loves his baby sister, every morning, day and evening he gives her a kiss.  He loves Rylie, they are still best friends and I love it. He loves kindergarten.  I love that he loves to learn and is so smart, I'm just afraid that by 3rd grade I won't be able to keep up with him academically :)  His favorite thing to do in school is eat apparently.  After school I always ask the kids to tell me 3 things they loved that day in school..his is always snack time and lunch...and then whatever else.  He has some friends at school that he always talks about so that makes me happy too.  He is great at his rhyming words and I'm already impressed at how much he has picked up on spelling.  He has always had a natural ability with letters and spelling but its impressive what he is doing for his age-even his teachers think so :) His current obsessions are power rangers (still) and skylanders the video game. 
Ezra loves to sing and listen to grown up music.  Loves Maroon 5.  He also loves church primary hymns.  He loves I am a Child of God, If the Savior stood beside me, and I like to look for rainbows.  He is doing so well as far as developmentally.  He has tested out of his IEP at school, however at home we still receive speech, OT, and PT.  New therapist and even his teachers have  told me that they would never guess that he has autism had I not told them, he definitely has more ADHD tendencies that are noticeable. 
I lay in bed sometimes thinking about the funny things he says.  My current favorite is when he meets someone new he tells them "I'm Ezra Kent Baker, but people call me Ezra"
We love you Ezra Kent Baker!!!
