Ok, I’m not four, but I am now the proud parent of a four-year-old.
Here’s the statistical update from his 4YO checkup.
- Weight: 34 pounds (33%)
- Height: 40 inches (44%)
- Body Mass Index: 25%
So what can I say about this little man who is sitting right next to me as I type this? He is very sweet, “and very big” according to him. He is a real trickster. He loves to joke around and be as silly as he can be. He is rarely serious. His favorite thing in the world is TV and his new toy truck (currently in toy time-out). He is becoming a very good big brother, always watching out for his little brother to make sure he doesn’t get hurt or in trouble.
Henry is a definite fruit monster. He loves every kind of fruit and it’s second only to candy. His next favorite food are starchy white carbohydrates. He’s not so big into vegetables or meats, and unlike most kids he won’t eat pizza or any other form of cheese. He still naps at school but not on the weekends. We enjoy a little alone time with him when Linus is napping.
He’s now in soccer class once a week at school, and on the weekends he goes to MyGym, a fun place to learn fitness and fun routines like the trapeze. And he keeps begging me to take him back to the rock climbing gym.
He is super, duper smart. He asks so many questions and makes so many connections. He knows his letters and is going to start sight words soon, I think. His memory is amazing.
He is just an incredibly cool kid and I shall now go back to playing with him, rather than writing about him. Happy Birthday, son!
