My baby boy is 4 years old. I know when I wrote his 3 year birthday post, I couldn't believe how old 3 was. But 4? OMG- old. He is completely a little man, his own little person, opinionated, smart, sweet... I could go on and on.
- Not much has changed between 3 and 4 growth wise. He is in 3T shorts, 3T and 4T shirts and size 10 shoes.
- I am not sure how tall he is as his physical is in a few weeks, but he is still about 34 pounds. He is really lean but has a nice, athletic build to him. Definitely has daddy's body and daddy's legs.
- His hair is darkening up a bit. Not as blond as it was last summer. More of a dirty blond color.
- This year, he loves swimming! and it took a while to love it as he was very scared of the water at the beginning of the season. Now he begs to take baths just to be able to put his head in the water or "float". He also loves playing outside- football, basketball, riding his bike.
- Speaking of the bike- this is the first summer he's had an actual bike, complete with training wheels. He is a champ about riding it too. He loves to ride his bike and play with his friends
- Friends became a big thing for him this year. He has great little friends at school, was invited to his first friend party (Nicholas), and loves playing with his friends down the street. Both Owen and Quinlin keep their eyes peeled when we come down the street to see if any garage doors are open so they can play. If a door is open, they shout "my friends, my friends!"
- 3 years old brought the first of team sports. Soccer last fall when just turning 3 and t ball this summer when almost 4. what an amazing difference those 6 months made. I am excited for what 4 will bring.
