How can it already be FIVE years since our little boy, okay, as you already know BIG boy, was born? It feels like it was just yesterday that he was a little pipsqueak of a baby, maybe crawling around or pulling up or cruising. Now, he is a full-fledged big boy, reading books, writing words and phrases and completing mathematical equations (addition and subtraction)! In four months, he'll be a Kindergartner! ACK! Again, we can't believe it's been five years already!
Here is what I wrote that exciting day. It includes some pictures of that special day we finally got to meet Jared, face to face :)

He weighs in at 10 pounds and is 21.5 inches long with a head circumference of 15 inches, hence the reason for the c-section :) Maria is doing well, recovering from her surgery.
