The day is here and just like that [snap finger emoji], it's gone. My son just turned 5 years old and I'm not sure what to think about it.

I'm pretty sure everyone I've talked to my entire life always says's, "It goes by so fast...enjoy it while you can." You don't really know what that means at age 5 I don't think. It's still so fresh in my mind so I don't think I'll feel that for a few more years.

I don't think it's moving too fast but so many obstacles from not thinking I would get married or have kids to having a beautiful son and daughter. Leo is 1 year old and Lennox just turned 5 years old.

It's crazy to think where we started with this little guy and how far we've come. Lennox didn't have any complications, smooth pregnancy, and everything pretty much picture perfect.

10 months into this little man's life is where things went sideways. Lennox suffered a GI bleed and that was followed by a list of complications. He would be in and out of the hospital until even this year. Lennox has fought off everything thrown at him and then some. I was looking at a photo tonight and couldn't help but get emotional. I'm so very proud of him and even more happy to be his father.

Lennox has battled everything tossed his direction and even every meal. I still can't figure out how to get this guy to eat because I feel like a parrot at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I did get some positive reinforcement to find out that's most kids 😂

To Lennox, Happy 5th birthday son. I love you so much.

Dad.

Here are a few photos from his birthday over the years. Seahawks have been in the hunt for most of those.
