Happy 5th Birthday Braden!

3 years old

Today! 5 years old

Today my boy is FIVE years old!! I can't believe how fast he's growing up...I feel like the time is passing me by so quickly! Every year around his birthday we dress him in his 'Korean outfit' for tradition and to see how much he's changed! I have a feeling that we won't be able to do it much longer because he's growing out of it! I'm so thankful that we are able to spend each and every day with him watching him learn and grow. God has given us a sweet, caring, helpful, loving, smart boy whose favorite thing to do is simply sit down and read a book...or be read to. This year he's: learning how to swim, finished K math and now doing beginning first grade math, reading a ton, (his favorite books right now are Magic Tree House) riding a bike with no training wheels (post on that to come later), learning how to do a variety of chores around the house, and trying to learn as much about EVERYTHING he can! He loves to learn...he LOVES to learn about anything and everything. Braden loves to: do school, read, help, build, do puzzles, play with Macy, play with his friends, color, paint, play board and card games, learn, spend quality time with Brian and I, play outside with Cailey, make me cards, serve, be tickled, and hang out with Brian.
Favorites this year:
food-vegetable pizza
book-"Could you Please Go Now?"
place to go-Nonny and Poppy's
thing to do-read books
dessert-chocolate ice cream
game-UNO attack
toy-the train tracks
thing to do outside-swing

We love you, Braden! Happy 5th Birthday!!
