Braden turns 4!!!!!

Can it be?!?!?!

My little baby boy is now FOUR!  "No way!" as Braden would say. Lol.  But, sadly, its true!

This year we kept it simple and enjoyed a HOT day at the park with family and friends.  I began to realize why we have had it indoors at Chuck E Cheeses the past two years!  But, it was fun, and we had a great turn out!  On his actual birthday we attended church and relaxed at home for the rest of the day!

Braden is growing so fast these days and the things that come out of his mouth just crack me up!  He really is becoming his own little person right before my very eyes!  He is starting his last year of preschool, and will continue with his PPCD classes in the afternoon.  This year he gets to also go into a Pre-K class at the elementary for an hour as well.  He has his first doctor's check-up this Friday and I'm looking forward to seeing how much he has grown.  The last check-up he had was at TWO!  So, I will definitely compare the two and see how far he has come!

Braden will begin soccer in a few weeks!  The more he is around other children and involved in these activities, the more I see him growing into a little boy more so than a toddler or preschooler.  He is enjoying church, and loves doing things for others!  He has a big heart, and a big personality!  It makes me happy to see how much him and his little baby brother have bonded and love each other so much!  Channing wrestles him and attacks him!  It is hilarious!

Braden's favorite color is:  Red
Braden's favorite food is:  Pancakes
Braden's favorite sport to play is:  Tag
Braden's favorite book is:  Thomas & Friends
Braden's favorite toy is:  Cars & Trucks
Braden's favorite show is:  Thomas & Friends
Braden's favorite super-hero is:  Daddy
Braden can read sight words and write all his letters and make words with help.  He is beginning to story-tell on command. And loves to sing and dance now than ever before.

I leave with a simple prayer for my sweet Braden.  Just that he follow in Jesus' footsteps as he continues to grow and learn and become a bigger boy, to continue to make his family proud, and to be a leader and protector to his baby brother and to other children.

Blessings & Love,
