Jared: Year Six

Yesterday at Sea World
Weight: 46 lbs
Height: 46 1/2 inches
Hair: light brownish red
Eyes: dark amber brown
Teeth:
 He's getting his six year molars (a couple are stuck behind his other ones--- hopefully that changes) AND he lost his first tooth last week.
Shoe Size: 10 1/2 to 11
Clothes Size: 5T pants for waist, but 6 for height, 5T & small shirts
Nicknames: Bubba, Buddy, Handsome, Big Guy
Likes: Annabelle (although this one changes on an hourly, maybe minutely, basis), Luke, Star Wars toys, dinosaurs, reading, playing the Wii, Sea World, Avengers, playing with Legos
Dislikes: being misunderstood, when Annabelle or Luke touches his stuff
Favorite Food:  Burgers & Japanese food
Favorite Toys: his dinosaur & star wars legos
Favorite Books: anything he can read by himself especially silly books like the Elephant & Piggie Series.  We're still into Magic Tree House; Captain Underpants is done after the one we finish.  I want to start Harry Potter this summer...
Favorite Things to Watch: Octonauts & Wild Kratts--- he's really into learning about animals right now
Other New Tricks: He's one of six Kindergartens who accomplished the GT (gifted & talented) tasks, so now he goes to that class, as well.  He reads at a mid-first grade reading level & LOVES to learn
What's next: Making a Summer To-Do List, including books to read.  We definitely need to teach him how to tie his shoes (parenting fail on our part).  Saying goodbye to his best friend who's moving to North Texas...
How he drives us crazy: He's still really LOUD.  The couple days this year that he's gotten in trouble is because he doesn't listen and is too loud in the classroom.*** He's super poky in the morning--- I feel like I spend the whole morning nagging him (and I don't like it).  We need to figure out something else to try for next year.
Why he's so awesome:  He is still a great helper & brother.  Everyone has moments of frustration, especially with siblings, but for the most part, he loves & treats Annabelle & Luke so nice.  He learns SO FAST and wants to help with almost anything.    Random funny thing is does right now:  He's nearly tongue-tied, which will be fixed next month, but because of it he has a hard time with Ts & Fs.  SO... when he counts, it sounds likes this... ONE, TWO, FREE, THOR.  Apparently, someone's got the Norse God of Thunder trapped somewhere & Jared is the key to finding the location. :)
