So for example we're counting down to Aunt Carly's bday, then Uncle Josh, then Britt, Grandpa, Aunt Amanda, Me THEN COOPER! (did I forget someone?)
This comes up almost weekly.
Jack's birthday is a week after Jake's. He wanted to have a birthday party with Dad this year so we did a family thing over at the Fry's and also had our friends, the Gollihurs, over for the day. Jack was spoiled by all and then on his REAL birthday ( a few days later but Jake already left for CA ) we went to Chuck-E-Cheese to play and had root beer floats that night.
We wrote a little entry in our family journal about Jack for his birthday and it goes as follows:
Jack turns 4 today! He finally gets to be in SUNBEAMS!
Jack weighs 38lbs and is 41" (3ft5in) tall
toy-video games, leap pad
He wants to be a ninja when he grows up.
What are we doing today? Going to Chuck-E-Cheese w/Cooper, Adele, Mom, Mimi and Carly. We're having root beer floats tonight when Grandma and Grandpa come over!
Love you Jack! You are one extreme boy. Extremely sweet and extremely loud and extremely silly and extremely naughty sometimes.
You got lots of scars this year. One (faint) one on your cheek and ear from the alpine sled. Your teeth went through your bottom lip @ Meg and B's house. Cooper hurt your nose on a plastic saw and sliced it open. You seem to always be getting hurt and leave us wondering whether or not you needed stitches! You are super helpful at home. You love helping with chores and cooking. You even got an apron for Christmas! You like to take naps still. You take very good care of Adele and your new puppy Griffin.
I know how cliche this sounds but I really can't believe how fast kids grow up. People keep asking me when Jack is going to go to preschool and I just can't send him yet. Cooper going to Kindergarten happened WAY too fast. I'm keeping Jack home while I can :)
