Our weekend has been spent celebrating this guy!  Our Nixon-Man turns 5 today.  5-years-old!  I’m not sure how that happened!  I’m in shock this guy will be going to school in August.  Complete shock!  Bowen and I will be lost without him.  We’ll miss him terribly.  Both of us.  We’ll be a mess.

He is 100% all boy and a TOUGH guy!  Although because he has an older sister he can name every Disney Princess there ever was.  Other than that…he is all-boy!  He is really “into” animals.  You know that “Animal Planet” aisle at Toys ‘R Us?  It’s one of his faves!  He’s also a big Legos fan and into all the typical boy sports…baseball, basketball, and football are his faves.

This guy adores his dad like no other.  He is a HUGE fan of one-on-one time with him.  The feeling is pretty mutual.  I’m not sure who enjoys it more…Nixon or Tab. 

Sometimes he says things that shock me.  He “gets” funny jokes and sarcastic things that he probably shouldn’t get at just five!  He’s so typical BOY and thinks “booty” and any “potty words” are hilarious!!

Nixon is tons of fun and a ball of energy!!  How does he keep going ALL DAY LONG?  He enjoys being the life of the party and the funny guy!  He fills up both of those slots in our family.  haha!

He is the best big brother.  He adores Bowen with all of his heart and does the best job taking care of him.  He has a great reputation with all the littles…Ashby and Griffin are big fans too!

This handsome guy is smart!  At the zoo yesterday, he was so quick to point out the bird was a falcon (not hawk).  He let me know he learned that little fact from Wild Kratts.  Thank you, PBS kids!  🙂

This little guy has my heart.  I had no clue how much I needed a little boy, but Nixon Talbot changed all that for me.  He introduced me to dirt, gross things, and the kind of love only a mom and son can have.  He melts me!

Nixon and this guy are the best buds.  They can play, play, play forever and then fight like brothers in a split second.  They amaze me with their ability to make-up and get right back on track…playing again!

I love this crazy boy more than I could have ever imagined!

    I could just cry talking about Nixon. Nixon is just the sweetest, most caring, and funniest kid I know. My three kids LOVE him! Smith would be absolutely lost without him. Smith loves him like a brother. Kensington thinks Nixon is hysterical and always enjoys his crazy antics and well, sweet Ashby has a crush. She totally digs those Slaughter boys like none other! We love you Nixon!!! We can't wait to see you later this morning!
