Happy 5th Birthday Sean!

My, oh my! How is my little boy five years old! In so many ways he is seems so much older but in other ways he is still so young. One thing has remained constant - he is a big boy! He is wearing a size 1 sneaker - Brian wore that last school year and they are 2 1/2 years apart! He is wearing about a size 5-6, some 7 shirts! Another thing is that he is a screamer. I was really hoping he would grow out of it, but not yet. Even as a baby he loved to scream, if for no other reason than to hear himself scream! He screams when his mad, when he is happy, when he is excited, when he is scared, really just at any time. And I have tried and tried to break him, but no such luck. The screaming goes on. Ugh!

Sean is a smart boy - he knows all of his letters and number and can count to 100 or more by himself. He can draw simple people and shapes and jellyfish. We are still working on perfecting his name, but at least it is legible now! He just doesn't have the patience to sit and practice. He doesn't care to hold the pencil or scissors correctly. My joke is that Sean doesn't march to the beat of his own drummer, that boy hears a tuba!

Sean is so funny and has a great sense of humor. He picked the dinner tonight - hamburgers with ketchup, corn on the cob and broccoli! And brownies with chocolate chips for dessert! Yummy! At dinner he said, "I am five, that's old. I'm old as dirt!" We were all laughing so hard. You can always count on Sean to make you laugh. He is stingy with his hugs and kisses, but that is okay, they are just that much more special when he does give them away! Sean is a joy, when he is not driving me crazy, and I am so happy and proud to call him my son! Happy Birthday Seany Biscuit!
