Jake, you are 5 years old today! It doesn't seem possible that my 3rd baby is that old and will be heading off to kindergarten in August. Time has flown by! We had your well child check up today and you weighed 39 lbs (50th %) and were 43 inches (75%) tall. You love all things Toy Story 3 and Cars. You love playing with Emma and sometimes with Caleb:-) You love going to school and ask everyday if it is a school day (you go on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). You have learned to write your name and can count up to 16. You are a very good eater and will usually eat anything put in front of you (except for roast and cubed steak--maybe a texture thing?) You are very helpful with your baby brother and love to hold him. You can dress yourself but still enjoy having help with your bath, washing your hair, and brushing your teeth. You go with the flow pretty well unless you really wanted to do something else. You have enjoyed learning to play video games this year--your favorites are on the DS and the playstation. You have some trouble staying in your bed at night--a process we are still working on. We tried a ticket system to get a toy at the end of 14 nights of staying in your bed, but after the 14 nights you were right back downstairs. You hate talking on the phone to anyone, including me. You also dislike when you have to have your hands dirty--especially if you have to touch something cold or sticky:-) You are a sweet little boy and I can't wait to see what exciting things God has in store for you this year--we love you Jakers!
