My 6 ½ year old as of Feb 2, 2016.
You love to read! You are very good at it too. Your favorite is really Dr. Seuss. You like chapter books too but mostly just the rhyming funny stuff. You are a great speller. Maybe you take after me 🙂 I’m very visual so when I think of a word or a persons name I see how it’s spelled in my head. You surprise me with how well you can decipher a word and then spell them too.
You like to play Legos, build with Lincoln Logs, play board games (We play a lot of LIFE around here!) & do gymnastics. You also love video games. Your favorite is Mario Party, Wii Sports and Mario Kart. Right now you are obsessed with tennis on wii sports. You make new mii’s whenever we let you and you talk about these mii’s like they are your real friends. You are very into it.
You have lost 5 teeth and 2 of those have come back in so far.
Your favorite foods are pizza, spinach salad, green beans, sweet carrots, grapes, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, tacos, hamburgers, yogurt. You drink only water.
You can memorize scripture insanely well. Applying it will come later I guess. 😛
You are in Awana & gymnastics. You were in choir but you haven’t wanted to go back to that. You were also in BSF but it wasn’t as fun as your previous class so you and daddy started doing “Dadscipleship” instead. Yall usually go up to Dwell (coffee house) and talk about what’s going on (likes/dislikes) and then yall go over a verse or passage. That’s when you asked Jesus into your heart to be saved!! (On January 13th at 11:11am- if we are being specific)
Since moving to this new house we’ve been wanting you to love being outside more and it’s really helped! You love climbing trees, playing hide and seek, swinging, riding your bike, playing baseball and now playing tennis.
We are definitely entering new territory with you as far as wanting more independence and your willingness to obey. You got some sass boy! And you get frustrated and annoyed when you don’t know what’s going on. Or if you think we are going to a certain place and we stop at Sonic or to get gas. You are not very happy about that.
You are a great big brother to both of them. You get mad at Jonah like any normal sibling relationship but you also include him in playing with your legos and toys. Zoie just goes crazy laughing anytime you even look at her. You are really great with her like you were with Jonah as a baby.
You are in size 5/6 depending on brand. You don’t like wearing jeans and you don’t like jackets.
Your shoe size is 13.
You say you want to work at a Pizza place when you grow up. You also want to make movies and draw. You’re also very curious about what is real and not real. So if we’re watching a movie, you ask us what is real, like characters, scenery, etc. You’re starting to realize that all cartoons are not real but for awhile you thought there were actually talking rats, dogs, etc. 😀 You’ve been very literal too.
When we are doing our DITL videos you like to do your own vlogging so I label it Jaidan Cam. It’s usually so funny because of the way you interpret things.
It’s so much fun teaching you and playing with you and doing the every day things with you. The 4 months I was home from maternity leave made me realize what a great little team our family is. I’m back at work now for the time being but I saw how important it is that I be home with yall. Any doubts I had about homeschooling quickly dissipated & now I couldn’t imagine you being gone all day! There will be plenty of time for that when you’re an adult. 🙂
I love you SO muck much. Amuk, amen. <3
You are my true first baby love.
