You're five years old now. That's half a decade!!! You're so big! As of your birthday you were 42 inches tall and 44.2 lbs! You've got blonde hair that seems to be darkening every time I look at you. Your eyes are the most gorgeous mix between green and brown that I've ever seen. When you wake up every morning you either enjoy a breakfast of cereal, or scrambled eggs. When we have pop tarts stocked on the shelf, you choose those! Your favorite fruit is a banana. You don't like mommy's favorite fruit of strawberries. Your favorite veggie is still broccoli although corn has a close second place. No day is the same with you.
Your favorite things to do right now besides run around and be silly to make everyone laugh are: Playing the kinect, playing any of the lego games, playing any of the many board games we have[favorites seem to be monopoly jr, scrabble jr, or don't break the ice!]. You enjoy coloring, and finally have started to understand how to color within the lines. When we're cooking you always are sure to ask if there's any way to help. I sometimes wonder if you will be a chef when you "grow up."
Being five means you're going to start Kindergarten this year. I am so excited for you to start, because I know that you're going to thrive in a structured environment. You crave others attention, and when you're at school you'll definitely have plenty of attention, I just hope that you do not distract others! ;)
Your bedtime right now is 8:00, and you usually wake up around 6 or 7 o'clock in the morning. Way earlier then Mommy is used to right now, but you are revved and ready to go!
Madyn, you are such a joy to me and your daddy. We love you so much and can't wait to see what the next 5 years bring!
Happy fifth birthday big guy!
