You are 5. FIVE YEARS OLD! That feels like such a milestone. I cannot believe it's already been 5 years. You are just such a blessing to your daddy and me. You have taught us so much in your short time on earth.
You are so unique and so special. You are empathetic and sensitive and have a such a big heart. You remind me a lot of your dad in that you have a thicker outer shell...only letting a select few really in to the mushy soft center. But once you let people in It's SUCH a privilege to be inside your "inner circle".
You are good as gold, with such a good heart. You are SMART. You are reading small words 3-4 letters. Sounding them out everywhere we go. You love to add and subtract and tell time. You talk about numbers and words all day everywhere we go. You have a thirst for knowledge just like your dad. You love to know little things that most people wouldn't think to ask about. You love to quiz me in Spanish and I am sad to say you already know more Spanish than I do, which you think is pretty funny.
You learned to ride a bike without training wheels a few weeks before your birthday by using your balance bike. You taught yourself! You asked for a big boy bike for your birthday. You are in Tae kwon do 2 days a week and you love going. You love your class at school and when you first started you were so shy about going. You love it now and look forward to it everyday! Your teachers love you and always have good things to say about you. You come home everyday with a smiley face for good behavior and usually 3/5 times a week you get a gold coin for Christ like behavior. You love working on your memory verses and each night during family worship you want to work on the one for that week plus review the weeks before too. You have a great memory!
You are very shy when you first meet people. You hide behind me, daddy or Madison. When you go into your class you walk in behind me with your face hidden and you quickly run over to your seat to start your craft. By the time I walk out of the class and peak through the window you are laughing it up with your friends and are the life of the party. People love you and love getting to know you and once you let them in they are there for life! You tell us your best friend at school is Luca. You both play so well together and you tell us he's a good guy (which means he gets lots of smiley faces haha.
At school today you wanted to take cake pops for all of your classmates to enjoy for your birthday. They sang to you in Chapel and I hid in the back and took pictures and videos. You are just so absolutely precious.
Here you are in the middle with the red birthday hat
You loved that they sang to you but your were bright red with embarrassment! You are too cute for words.
You try so hard to suppress the smile. You try to be serious and keep a straight face but that adorable smile squeaks through :)
For your birthday dinner we went to Gattitown with Dana and Sheila and their grandson Aiden and Ms. Rachel,Ava and Nolan. We ate pizza (your fav) and red velvet cupcakes (your request) and played games and rode go carts. You had a blast!
This weekend we are going to Dallas and we will do your 5th birthday party at Pump it Up. You are really into grave digger right now because daddy took you to your first Monster truck jam a few weeks ago. You asked for a gravedigger cake. We shall see what we can come up with!
I will leave you with this interview. You are too cute for words. I just love you so much!
