|...no longer my only son, but still my number one!|
Height: 48 1/2"
Weight: 53 lbs
Sleeping Patterns: You are a good sleeper. Just like mommy you are ready to go to sleep when you are ready...you can fall asleep despite a TV on, others near you wide awake, or the light of day still glowing. Also like mommy you are an early riser who cannot just roll over and go back to sleep. So that puts a wrench in weekend slumber, but that's okay.
Eating Habits: It used to be that you would wake up hungry and want an almost immediate breakfast. You still like to eat in the mornings, but you have slowed down a little. Now that you have started Kindergarten, you like to buy your lunch in the cafeteria. It cracks me up for you to tell me that you ate peas and green beans. I'm proud that you make healthy choices, but I am saddled with the responsibility to have those choices available to you. You love fruit, you dislike onions and pickles, and you have recently discovered mommy's / Nona's recipe for homemade beefaroni which you like even more than spaghetti.
New Discoveries & Accomplishments: You played soccer for the first time this spring and loved it. You learned how to swim this summer at the YMCA. And most importantly, you started Kindergarten this year which has opened this category wide.
Places You Love: You really love swimming! This summer you got to go to Orange Beach, AL and to Destin, FL -- at each location you definitely prefered the pool to the sand! We swam at cousin Miles' pool several times and you had a blast. You ask all the time if someone can take you to Top It Off (frozen yogurt bar). I wish we could say "yes" every time, but we would either weigh 300 lbs or be broke or both! You love to go to Aunt Kristy's and play with cousin Josh. But more than anything else, you really love being at home, which is fine by me!
Special Friends: You invited some of your good buddies from Prince of Peace to your birthday party this month. I think you miss them. However, now that you have started Kindergarten, you are starting to talk about the kids in your class more. He's not in your class, but RJ goes to Helena Elementary and you really like him. There is a boy on your bus named Julian who you sit beside each day. Hopefully we can get together and play with him soon.
What We Did This Day: Your birthday (August 28th) fell on a Tuesday during the second week of school. Baby Will has only been home from the hospital for three days, so we took advantage of your birthday and had a quiet night at home. We ate dinner, had a cookie cake, and you got to open a fun li'l present. Remember, your birthday party was held earlier this month at Pump-It-Up.
