Some words that describe this little boy: sweet, loving, helpful, silly, precious, smart, outgoing, fun...and I could go on, and on about this little guy.
I am always amazed at his hand-eye coordination (someday I'll post a little montage video of him playing baseball starting as soon as he could hold himself up against a piece of furniture). He is also very competitive and motivated by winning something. (very goal oriented) He loves numbers and is a quick learner (when he wants to learn something, that is).
He has a fantastic laugh!
It's amazing to think that he is 5 and truly is a 'big boy' now in the way he helps his brother and sisters, buckles his own seatbelt, obeys mommy and daddy (most of the time), and gives big bear hugs!
Here are a few recent pictures of my sweet
First day of preschool with his favorite new thing...his backpack. He took in a couple hugs from Daddy before he went inside and then was off and loving his new school!
The boy with a thousand faces...
After lunch we had cupcakes for him and he got to open a couple presents like this Hot Wheels wall track set. I have to say I think it is a genius idea to make a track that hangs on the wall so you don't have to clutter up your floor...and so that I can easily take the lowest pieces off to keep Henry from destroying them while Elliott isn't playing with it. Can't wait to set it up in his new bedroom next week!!
Happy Birthday Elliott! We love you!
