The boys turn five in just a handful of days. FIVE! How do we have preschoolers who are basically kindergardeners??? It just doesn’t seem possible. It feels like they’ll be off to college tomorrow.
Miles continues to be the first one up most mornings and will often pick out a clip on tie to go with his ensemble for the day.
He has a favorite pair of jeans we call his “cake pants” because one of the patches has “cake” written on it. Someday he’ll out grow them and we’ll have to find a new favorite pair of pants but for now he wears them three or four times a week.
Miles is becoming an adventurous eater. We still have a way to go to branch out from the peanut butter and jelly lunches and raw carrots as the favorite veggie BUT Miles will often try new foods with a bit of encouragement or to see what Daddy is eating. It seems a funny thing to be happy about but Miles is finally into pizza. He’ll ask when our next pizza night is and when I bring up pizza spur of the moment he is excited (that only took four years). And in true takes-after-Mommy fashion, he’s a pepperoni guy.
We’ve finally surfaced out of the three month stretch of wanting to build paper monsters every day from the book Auntie Suzanne and Uncle Matt gave him for Christmas.
With our upcoming trip to LegoLand he also wants to spend a lot of time looking at lego videos on my laptop. He likes to watch the youtube videos people have posted about the park and he likes looking at the lego website to see all the sets he doesn’t yet have in his collections.
“Can I have a frozen yogurt?”
“NOW what?” “What should I color?” “What should I build?”
