We have to agree with former Teen Mom star Maci Bookout who tweeted earlier this week, “yall.. i refuse to believe that my son will be five on sunday. help. #bittersweet” That’s right, reality television’s awesomest little dude is maintaining his level of awesome, but is getting way less little as Bentley Edwards continues to grow up.
Although his birthday isn’t technically until tomorrow (Ocotber 27), mom Maci Bookout and a large number of friends and family gathered for Bentley birthday party earlier today. Proud mom Maci shared this next photo on instagram and wrote, “had a great birthday party today for my little guy!! thanks to everyone who came to celebrate with us!”
In addition to the photo, another party goer shared a video of the singing of “Happy Birthday To You” as well as Bentley blowing out the candles!
From the looks of the cupcake cake, it appears as though Bentley has bumped Thomas the Tank Engine from the top of his favorites list and replaced him with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Sorry Thomas, but that’s just what happens when you turn the big O-5.
Happy early birthday to Bentley Edwards! I know it’s selfish, but I hope he wished for a full season of Being Maci.
UPDATE - Bentley Birthday Bash Weekend continued on his actual birthday with a roller-skating party! Check out this GREAT photo of Bentley with mom Maci Bookout and dad Ryan Edwards, who are obviously continuing the positive co-parenting we saw towards the end of Teen Mom:
Ryan’s mom, or perhaps more appropriately, Bentley’s grandma Jennifer Edwards tweeted the photo today along with the exuberant words, “Great day!! Happy 5th Birthday Bentley!!” Jennifer also shared a couple photos of Bentley enjoying some Halloween activities with dad Ryan and Ryan’s new gal pal Shelby Woods in which Bentley can be see sporting a mighty cool Iron Man Halloween costume:
And perhaps better than all the photos was this tweet by Maci at the end of Bentley’s big day:
