5 years

Carson- you are five years old!!

  • You weigh 40.5 lbs. and are 3.5 feet tall!
  • You wear size 5T shirts and 4T pants.
  • You love ravioli and your favorite beverage is root beer.

  • You LOVE being 5 years old! Lately, every sentence starts with "Now that I am five years old..." or "Because I am a five year old..." You feel like such a big kid and think you are capable of anything now!

  • This past year you have turned into a true boy! You love all boy things, and will tell us if something is for girls, including movies and toys. Your dad is loving having someone to teach about tools and sports, and has a movie-buddy for the action flicks I'm not into.

  • You are such a leader! Your take-charge attitude is going to help you achieve great things one day, but for now gets you to talk your friends (and family) into doing it your way.

  • Although you like to fake it sometimes, there is not a shy bone in your body. You make friends instantly where ever we go and have done wonderfully at your new pre-school (a little too wonderful in the girl department...)

  • Your love for God is amazing! We are blessed to have found a church to raise you in and love that you constantly ask questions and give theories about God.

  • Video games are one of your newest obsessions, and you love Super Mario Brothers and the new Nintendo DS you received for your birthday. But, you would still rather play with friends or outside any day.

  • You have exceeded every expectation we had for you being a big brother. You love Deacon SO much and are great with him without an ounce of jealousy. You like to make sure he is included on all that we do, and now that he is bigger your favorite activity is carrying him around the house.

  • You are great with numbers and can do simple addition; we are working on learning the rest of your letters and writing. We cannot wait to see how much you learn in the next year when you enter school! We are still having trouble believing we will have an elementary student in a few short months...

  • Have I mentioned that you are silly???
