and, yes, i'm totally late w/ this. he was 6 on monday. but i've been meaning to get a cute pic of him and the sun keeps not cooperating on the days that i actually think of it. doh. so, instead, here is a cute but slightly blurry pic of him on the carousel at the zoo on sunday. =)
so. yeah. SIX. six years ago he surprised us by coming a month early, and he really hasn't slowed down since. hard to believe that this lanky little boy whose head comes up to my chest used to be a 6lb peanut.
he is video game obsessed. wants to make video games when he grows up, like uncle dan. he's still a snuggler. loves his brother and is always ready to help him - and gets frustrated when ben doesn't want help. he's finally getting his confidence back after the great kindergarten saga of 06 and no longer gives me repeated "i don't knows" and "it's too hards" - and is suddenly reading just about anything and figuring out anything i throw at him.
he picked out this cake, which i called a rocketship cake, but was corrected - "that's a SPACE SHUTTLE, mom" always orders the space themed books when we get scholastic book orders. makes daddy happy.
