Jared: Year Five

At preschool, last month
Weight: 40 lbs--- FINALLY
Height: 44 inches
Hair: light brownish red
Eyes: dark amber brown
no teeth gained--- no teeth lost, although apparently we have to worry about six year molars next year--- yikes!
Shoe Size: 10 1/2 to 11
Clothes Size:4T pants, 5T shirts--- I bet he'll be in all 5T soon
Nicknames: Bubba, Buddy, Goofy Goober, Handsome, Big Guy
Likes: Annabelle, Luke, his stuffies & blue blanket, Star Wars toys, dinosaurs, Phineas & Ferb, reading, doing puzzles, playing the Wii, Sea World
Dislikes: being misunderstood or disciplined, when Annabelle touches his stuff (doesn't sound familiar at all)
Favorite Food:  burgers & pizza
Favorite Toys: his dinosaur k'nex, Star Wars figurines, Phineas & Ferb figures, and his Millennium Falcon
Favorite Books: scripture stories, his mini Book of Mormon, Elephant & Piggie books, we just checked out Magic Tree House and Captain Underpants, so we're going to start reading those together.
Favorite Things to Watch: Tiny Toons, Jake & the Neverland Pirates, Phineas & Ferb, Dinosaur Train, Tom & Jerry
Other New Tricks: He pretty much doesn't nap anymore, he's picking up sight word already--- I bet he'll start reading soon.
What's next: A fun and relaxing summer getting ready for KINDERGARTEN (breathe, Amber, breathe)
How he drives us crazy: He's figured out how to open the child locks on our doors, so now he'll knock on our door and then open it.  And by knock I mean, bang.... at least he doesn't barge in.*** He usually only has one volume: loud.  It gets amplified in our house and when he breaks down--- I bet the whole street can hear.*** He's smart--- which means he gets bored REALLY easily.  Ever since he was a baby, he likes to be entertained.  I love spending time with him, I just hope he finds his own quiet activities which he likes to do.
Why he's so awesome:  He's always been an amazing helper.  I usually don't have to ask him twice to do something which is nice.  He's a fantastic big brother.  Always willing to help them, and yes, a little bit on the bossy side.  We've already noticed that he's really in-tune with the Spirit.  Greg and I hope we can foster than and I really hope that doesn't change, but gets strengthened when he goes to school. Five years seems like so short, but it feels as though Jared has been apart of the family the whole time.

Happy Birthday, Buba, thanks for giving me the best gift in the world five years ago... becoming a mom.
