I can't believe it's more than a month past your birthday and I am just know writing this. ;( So sorry...at least it's getting done right!?!? LOL! I LOVE YOU more than words will ever be able to explain. You changed my heart for the better!
You are MAJOR into dinosaurs right now. You wake up talking about them and go to bed talking about them. You love everything that has to do with Jurassic Park, though you still haven't seen the movies. (Daddy and I have decided if you are ready. Ha!) This year you chose Toy Story b-day theme. It's what you picked over 9 months ago and stuck to it until 2 days before the party. Sorry bud, there was no going back. LOL! It was a great party even though we had to have it a month after your actual birthday. (Gotta love scheduling a party during the summer;)
You played t-ball this Summer too! There were moments you loved it and moments...well, not so much! We are so proud you pushed through some of the things you were afraid of and continued to finish the season. You decided you are ready to start Taekwondo back up once Pre-K starts in the Fall.
You are 44 inches tall and 37 lbs...I think you have grown SO MUCH over the summer! You still wear 2T shorts because of the waist but they will be too short next summer for sure. ;) You were mostly 4T shirts but have started wearing some 5T as well. You choose to wear a hat as much as you can so you don't have to fix your hair. You HATE having to get it sprayed with water. You wear the same pair of flip flops almost everyday. You don't like when you can't spread your toes out in shoes....it's quite interesting to hear you explain your reasoning. (I know Mom, "paying for my raising.")
We are really working on the amount of whining you do right now...;( It's pretty frustrating at times but mostly it happens when you are beyond exhausted...You haven't napped since before you were 2 because it would take you FOREVER to fall asleep if you napped. You would lay from 7:30pm to after midnight before you would finally fall asleep. With no nap your bedtime is between 7pm-8pm. I usually lay with you and Daddy lays with Sissy. I sing "Be careful little eyes" until you fall asleep. You were sleeping through the night for a while and then started waking again. ;( It's been a pretty big struggle for you to sleep through the night this summer. We have tried lots of things but none seem to work consistently. It gets pretty hard sometimes as you and I will be up multiple times a night but I know there will be a day I look back and wish I was waking up to go comfort you....at least that's what I keep telling myself over 5 years in at 1am. 2 am. 3am....;/ I can't imagine how good it feels to sleep through the night for multiple nights in a row! A mama can dream right?!?!?
You are an amazing BIG brother. You love your sister so much! She loves you too! We haven't had the T.V. on much this summer and there have been days where you two will play together perfectly for hours as if I am not even there. You LOVE making imovies on the ipad and I have put your sister through the "test." Now that she can record up to your standards you guys spend 75% of your time making movies. Most of the movies are about dino's but somehow random princesses makes their way into the movies too!
You have a tender heart and do not like to "mess up." You are learning it's ok to do something on accident but it still requires an "I'm sorry." Being 5 is tough but you are doing an amazing job at it! In Aug. you will start Pre-K...I don't think you are worried at all. I, your mam, am struggling a little knowing I will be dropping you and your sister off 3x's a week for 3 hours. It will be interesting for me to be alone, but that's a post for another day.
Wyatt Mark, you are an amazing boy. I love being your mom. I am so lucky to get to be with you everyday. Even though are tough times I wouldn't want it ANY OTHER WAY! Happy 5th B-day Buddy! We love you!!!
