Hapde Burfday Grant

 And then he was 6!
 (90th percentile for height and weight and surpassing Samantha at this point.)
My Dearest Grant,

Now you are 6! (I am a few days late, LOL).

At 6 you are:
adjusting to kindergarten (You hate how long the days are, and I agree, half day kindy was the way to go, but sadly, the world has changed)
reading short books
writing sentences
good at making friends (even with enemies)
completely obsessed with Minecraft and pokemon (ugh)
hate wearing jeans AND "regular" shorts (and making  me crazy about it)
still absolutely, positively the most stubborn child I have ever laid eyes on
an early riser (hello barely 6 am every single day)
suddenly a picky eater
convinced you cannot do anything by yourself, and then you do
still enjoying music
have a real understanding of words and how to use words (in a way that Jack still does not)
tying your shoes (even though you said you would NEVER be able to do that)
still enjoying gymnastics
still clumsy and not sure how to get your feet to work
learning Spanish and sign language at school (hurray!)
still sure you are NEVER getting in the big public pool again even though you love all the other pools
love playing with numbers in your head (like someone else we know, ahem)

And so much more.

I love you so much little dude!

Happy Birthday,


  1. Wow!! I have a 6 year old granddaughter and your list of "At Six" could be describing her!! He is such a cutie! (don't tell him I said that!)

  2. Lovely photos, great post!


Hi there. What say you?
