March-June are pretty busy at our house! EVERYONE'S birthdays in our family fall into those months and spring sports, church and school programs, finishing up school stuff, and the start of summer vacations!
GANNON- I cannot believe you are 6 years old!!! Time really does fly! You are still our little jokester boy and you have gotten pretty good at convincing people of just about anything you want to make up. You are sweet, caring, always the first one to say thank you, I love you, give a hug, kiss. You do a great job praying and you are always nice to everyone. You still love swords, ninja stuff and star wars things. But you have really started to love basketball, soccer, football and baseball. You are great at riding bike, rollerblading, and math ( you can do all of Griffin's math papers which is first grade stuff and you are only in pre-school) WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
TYRA- You are still our sweet little girl ... along with some 2 year old tantrums... just because you think you can do EVERYTHING yourself! Some of the things you think you can do are... zip up your sweatshirt, button your shirts, get in and out of the car yourself and buckle yourself, walk in a parking lot yourself, get your shoes on yourself... a lot of these things lead to some outburst by you! I guess you got a little of your mama's stubbornness :) Most of the time you are smiling, happy, easy going, and sweet. You are girly in some ways... you like to wear sunglasses, and carry a purse, you like to put on chap stick and try on lots of shoes all day long. You play with babies a tiny bit, but you mostly like little animal stuff. You are a tom-boy in lots of ways too, you are very aggressive... probably our most aggressive kid, you tackle, you love to play basketball and soccer with your brothers, you want to wear "jammie pants" all the time when we are home, you say words like butt, and poop. In general though, you talk a lot and can for sure put 3 words together. Daddy calls you "girlfriend" all the time and has trained you to only kiss him! You love to ride your skitter, play outside, color with a pen and notepad (and sometimes yourself and your clothes), you like to talk on the phone. You are about 1/2 way potty trained. You don't wear diapers during the day anymore... but mommy has to take you pee every 30 minutes! You hide to poop or you go in your diaper before you come out of your room in the morning... but you are the last one to be potty trained, so mommy is determined to get it done! WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH TOO!!!
