Whitten turns FOUR

This post is only 2 months late.....
My sweet, sweet Whitten!  You have grown leaps and bounds this year!  You have completely come out of your shell and have become a full on comedian!  You are hilarious and just so much fun! You are still shy around people you don't know, and your defense mechanism is to turn into a kitty!
Some fun facts about you:

  • You are so incredibly smart!  You know around 50-75 site words and are reading Bob books pretty fluently.  
  • Your favorite TV show is still Umi-Zoomi
  • You eat either chicken nuggets or a grilled cheese sandwich every day for lunch.  But you love fruit and veggies.  Your favorite treat is a spinach, blueberry, banana smoothie! 
  • You love for me to kiss your back every night!  And you are always up for a good back scratchin'!
  • You started pre-school this year and are doing great so far!
  • You still say your best friend is Matthew Scaglione. 
  • You rarely walk anywhere.  You either skip, gallop, run, tip toe, crawl like a bear.....
  • Your smile and laugh is infectious!
  • You still want to be just like Cooper.  Whether it's riding a bike without training wheels, tying your shoes, or eating something you don't like....You always say you will do it when you are 6 like Cooper!  
You amaze me in more ways you will every know!  You are my sunshine and I am so proud of the little boy that you are!

Birthday Party!  It was so cold!  Would would've guessed in September!

You are so excited to be FOUR tomorrow!!

Morning of your birthday!

 Progression pictures of your big brother agitating you!!  

And we ended your day at Chuck E Cheese!

Josh's wreck

Our lives could've been changed forever.  I just wanted to make sure this was written down so that we will never forget that Josh was protected by our heavenly father on this certain day.  I can't even begin to comprehend our lives without him.  I will never forget this day.  The fact that he walked away with nothing more than just a few nasty bruises (and well, a forever messed up back) is nothing short of a miracle.

First Day of School 2014

We finally have a Kindergartner!!!!!!!  We have decided to go the public school route (for now) and so far so good!  Coop loved his first week of school!  I can't wait to see what the future holds for our outgoing, spunky, talkative, a little bit lazy-but oh so smart big kindergartner!

Cooper has no desire to be an actual banker.  He is just obsessed with money right now and I gave him the idea because he would get to play with money all day!  

And then it was Whitt's turn!  This is his first year to go to preschool!  He will be going to First Baptist...and we pretty much live there anyway, so he's super familiar and wasn't the least bit nervous!  He was just excited to go to school like  his big brother!
