Joah is turning 5 tomorrow…  wow!  My youngest is five!

It seems like only yesterday when the hospital staff placed a squirming bundle-of-boy into my arms… and now, I have a little-man running around the house!  What a privilege and blessing it has been to be Mom-to-Joah.

Here’s some milestone photos of Joah’s first 5 years:

Joah with his dad – the first photo! 🙂I have always loved this photo... taken when Nick's family met Joah for the first time: the first Costaras boy! Joah's uncle Dino is holding him... while Nick's dad films and Nick's mom grins from ear to ear...I have always loved this photo… taken when Nick’s family met Joah for the first time: the first Costaras boy!
