4 1/2 years

Today, Dylan turned 4 1/2. It's hard to believe that he's been with us for that long. On one hand, it seems as if he's always been here, but on the other hand, I can't believe how fast the years are flying by!

Dylan is still tall and lanky. He is 45 inches tall (3'9) and 38 lbs.

He has his first loose tooth!

He is obsessed with superheroes. He loves Spiderman, Batman, Wolverine, Superman, and Iron Man. He loves anything that has to do with Star Wars. He often pretends he is a superhero, and has to coordinate his outfit to who he currently is. That means, he changes several times a day!

His favorite cartoon is (gulp) Spongebob Squarepants. He also loves Berenstain Bears.

He loves playing outside. We spend hours outdoors, every sunny day.

He is a great eater. His favorite snacks are fruits, vegetables, cheese, and nuts. He loves edamame and pita chips with hummus. His favorite thing to drink is milk.

His junk foods of choice are popcorn and gum.

He has a bit of a developmental stutter. It seems to come and go. Sometimes it gets frustrating, but we are patient with him.

He loves playing games. His favorites are memory, candyland, and cooties.

He still loves to read. His favorite books are Berenstain Bears.

He is amazing at baseball.

He loves animals.

He loves to perform and be the center of attention. He is a ham and a ladies man.

He says that he's going to be a baseball player or a doctor when he grows up. I wouldn't be surprised if he's an actor.

He is still the sweetest little man, despite the attitude and typical 4 year old behavior. He is constantly hugging, kissing, and telling people that they are his best friend or that he loves them so much. He has more compassion at 4 years old than a lot of adults.

I love him to pieces.

Coincidentally, Lexie turned 27 months today.

She and Dylan were both born on the 22nd of the month, so it just so happens that she is the exact same age today that Dylan was on the day she was born.

I can't even remember him at that age. He seemed so much older at that age, than she does now! Probably, because he had the duty of being a big brother.

Happy 27 months, princess!

Happy 4 1/2 years, Dylan! You are now closer to 5 than you are to 4. Stop growing up so fast, buddy!
