Holy crap. You’re FIVE! When did that happen?!
When I think back on your year four to five, it brings a smile to my face. Watching you grow into the young boy you’ve become, makes me so proud. You’ve become more independent and self-confident. You are eager to try new things, and when you got frustrated, you were better able to express your emotions. Most of the time.
You’re curious, extremely inquisitive and NEVER STOP TALKING. You’re an energizer bunny, silly, and, at times, rowdy and obnoxious. Perfect in every way.
Some of my favorite moments from this past year…
You’re fourth birthday party
Teaching Kinsley how to play golf
Flying through the sky with Uncle David
Your first visit to Aggieland
Racing Pepaw down the waterslide
Your first pair of glasses
How every single time we went for a run and you had to pee in the exact same spot
That moment you realized how to manipulate with that lower lip and sly smirk… you little fournipulator
You always take time to notice beautiful things
That time you fell in love with a pumpkin
Halloween fun as the Justice League
Friday Night Lights fun with Pepaw
Your first trip to a farm
Your first movie
Your obnoxious Monster Truck collection
Writing your first letter to Santa
Your first trip to the Trail of Lights
A visit to Santa
Monster Jam… again
Your first time to the driving range
Our trip to New Braunfels
Easter egg huntin’
Trip to Port Aransas
Pre-k graduation… sniff… sniff
So… what have we learned this past year? Like I said above, you’re full of energy, talkative and curious. You’re eager to show me what you can do, and you’re always excited by your accomplishments. You constantly test your environment and waffle between feelings of security and insecurity. You could be a bossy little devil who always felt the need to be in charge. You experienced emotional highs and lows with this fournipulator stage and each day presented a new challenge — for both of us.
