Mr. E is such a great kid. He loves his friends and regularly tells me that his Uncle G is his best friend (the 5 year age difference doesn't phase him one bit). He loves to help with anything we will let him help with. He has really started to come into his role as a big brother and sometimes plays well with Baby J. The boy has a serious lack of "poker face," we always know when he is trying to hide something or when he's done something he knows he shouldn't. He loves to compete... games, races, wrestling... as long as there can be a winner he's up for it-- and he is a pretty good winner and doesn't get too sore when he loses. He is very affectionate and loves to snuggle up and watch a movie or show. He loves to sing and picks up on music quickly. He likes to hide whenever he hears someone coming, but he gets too giggly for it to be very effective. He loves it when daddy's friends come over to sing music and gets out his guitar or drum set and microphone to join them-- he's even been on stage at a performance. Mr. E and our Ginger puppy are still buddies and he has high hopes that, one day, she will sleep in his room with him every night. His favorite color is red and he was thrilled that he got to play on a tee ball team with red shirts and hats (St. Louis Cardinals). He really enjoyed tee ball in the spring and is still thankful for it every night. He is spunky and busy and we love him so very much!
We celebrated with pizza, chocolate cake, ice cream, and presents. Grandma and Grandpa H were there with all three of my brothers and my awesome sister-in-law, along with Great-Grandpa and Grandma E. It was a quiet night, but fun and just what Mr. E wanted-- all the attention on him!
He is such a blessing in our home and definitely keeps us on our toes.
