What!?!?!? I can't even believe it. I feel like we've been celebrating you turning four for a while now. You celebrated in your class before school was out, in Lubbock with family, and then at your birthday party last weekend, but now it's real and you are officially 4!!!! (Well at 11:30 PM tonight.)
Every time I write a blog about a monthly or yearly birthday I say, "That sounds so old". Well, I mean it. 4 IS old! You are an old man! ;)
What an awesome "old man" you have turned into.
You are so special in so many ways.
You are the best big brother. Sure you are working on some sharing issues but you love your baby brother more than anything. You are sweet, kind and gentle with him. As long as he doesn't have something you want. ;)
You are a very animated story teller with the most vivid imagination. You have a few "imaginary" friends. B, Josiah and Riley are often at our house! You still love to play with mommy and daddy but you really play well on your own.
You love playing with legos, your tools, creating things with stickers, paper, crayons, scissors and glue.
You love being outside.
You seem to always be listening. Even when we don't think you are.
You are not a good secret keeper, but you are working on it and you kept daddys Father's Day gift a surprise!
You hate crooked socks!
You are showing great interest in all things school. Counting, letters, writing, your name ect.
You love sprinkles but still don't like meat. Sometimes you'll eat chicken. We are working on it and you have come a long way. We now don't pack food to eat out (it was getting embarassing) as long as the place has a grilled cheese you and Chase are good to go! If you're both eating something you like, your brother can definatly eat more. You just don't eat much in a sitting.
You still take something to bed with you. Usually a small car. You have a bed full of small stuffed animals but your favorites are still camo pillow (although it was retired for a short time) and your baby blanket.
You like everything to have a place and everything must go back where it should be. You make mommy proud. We had a fun time organizing (and admiring) your craft/art stuff a couple weeks ago.
You are beyond words amazing. Mommy loves you mosty-most. I am so proud of you and the little guy you are becoming. Mommy and Daddy will continue to celebrate you. We love you buuuuddy!
Today we spent the day celebrating you and all the things you love. We had donuts for breakfast, presnts from mommy, daddy and Chase, went to the REAL Boat Show at Reliant and ended the day eating a grilled cheese at Willies with two balloon swords!
