5 Years Old!

William Patrick turned 5 on November 17! 5...This seems so old. Officially a little boy. Old enough to start elementary school. Embarrassed to have mom give him kisses in front of his friends. Tall enough to ride the "big" rides at Disneyland. Over "Lightning McQueen" & "Thomas the Train." Even though it makes me sad to see him get older, I am in love with the 5-year old version of him. He continues to be the sweetest boy. William LOVES life. As Grandpa Jerry says, no one has a much fun as Will. He is so creative & has an amazing imagination. He has a thirst for knowledge & I never tire of his questions. This boy has his mommy wrapped around his finger for sure!

Will's current likes are:
1. Dinosaurs, dinosaurs, dinosaurs. Oh & did I mention dinosaurs?
2. Volcanoes
3. Skeletons & the human body
4. "Creating" - give him a roll of scotch tape & some popsicles sticks & he's one happy kid!
5. His friends - This boy is ALL about playing.
6. School - Every morning is started with the question, "Is today a school day?"
7. His mom - Always has been his mommy's boy. He still loves to cuddle!
8. Legos
9. Outings with grandma - The dinosaur museum is usually his first choice. Grandma's a good sport!
10. Bathroom talk - Seriously, what's with boys & bathroom talk? Who knew the word "fart" could be so funny.

Happy Birthday, little man. We love you!!!
