I wanted to document some of the things Seth has been saying over the past few days surrounding his birthday. He seemed to think that turning five was going to mean huge, immediate changes. You'll see what I mean....
"Mom, tomorrow when I'm five, what am I going to look like? What is my voice going to sound like?"
When I explained that he wasn't going to change overnight and that he grows a little bit every day, his response was "How am I ever going to get big, then?"
"So now that I'm five, I get to stop going to preschool and start going to kindergarten, right?"
This wasn't helped by the fact that we went on two school tours yesterday as I'm trying to pick which school Seth will be going to in August. He just doesn't understand why he doesn't get to go to kindergarten right now.
"Mom, now that I'm five, I can ride my bike somewhere by myself, right? Like to the store or something?"
I don't know where this came from.
Jonas had a birthday too, the day after Seth. He is such a sweet little boy. He's been taking tentative steps for a few weeks now. He is very good at playing independently, but he also loves to try and do exactly what his siblings are doing. He continues to not be a very good eater. He's showing the same signs of milk allergy that Maryn did at this age, so I am less than thrilled about that. He loves to climb and uses this skill to get into as many things as possible. I think he will be the first of my children to craw out of his crib. The only time he will sit still is when I read a book to him. His favorite is Good Morning, Good Night.
He says a few words...at least I think he does. When he's upset he yells something that sounds like "Mom!". He says "Da-da" when Jon comes home each day, and he waves and says something that sounds like "Hi!".
One last note, with all these birthdays- Maryn can't understand why it's not her birthday too. Luckily, Grandma B brought her a present when she brought presents for the boys- a Care Bear blanket and pillows that she loves! (pic to come)
And more pics and video to come of our weekend visitors. We had a fun, fun time with Papa, Grandma, Scotty and Rach. We love you!
