For his birthday celebrations this year, we opted for a different route this year, than big birthday bash. We has several reasons for this, but were really happy we did. We did our family fun, then a extended family birthday lunch, and just a playdate on Monday with friends. For our family birthday fun on the Saturday before his birthday, we gave him three options to pick from. After we gave him the choices, I second- guessed the wisdom in doing so, but he handled it like a champ! He calmly verbalized he needed to think about it. The next day he let us know his pick-- Planes: Fire & Rescue!!
Our precious, crazy boy full of life and energy. We love you monkey!
Our little dude at 4 years old is really enjoying legos!! I've loved watching his little brain work and his little imagination take action. They can definitely stress him our and frustrate him, but its good practice for controlling those emotions. He got some birthday money to Target, which he loved, and quickly decided he'd like to get legos. They have been a hit!
But perhaps his favorite new thing.... his brother. It really has blown us away at the love this little kiddo generates for his little brother. It melts my heart and makes me ever so thankful! His maturity in this new change has truly been a gift and joy!! Don't get me wrong, he is still a child with some uncontrollable sinful attitudes and selfish desires but little brother really just has a special place in this big brother's heart.
