David requested a minion birthday party. I always procrastinate everything, so I was up until 1 the night before and then spent the whole day trying to make a minion pinata for him.
I'm not going to deny it, I was pretty impressed with myself. I"m not much of a crafter, but if it's something that I know doesn't have to be perfect, then I can pull it off. Josh helped to paper mache it and made it a little too well. It took several tries before the kids could break it, but at least everyone had a turn!
I decided to have an old fashioned kind of birthday. We had a 3-legged race, sack race, and played pin the googles on the minion. Overall, it was a fun party, with pizza and popcorn. I think David is very happy to be five :)
David now weighs 34.6 lbs and is 42 inches tall.
He is my super sensitive boy. He loves loves his Chloe so much. Whenever she's crying he's the first one there to help make her happy. He pumps her legs, sings her songs, rubs her head to try and calm her down. He love to help give her baths and even change her diaper.
He's also sensitive in that his feelings are hurt all the time and he lets me know if I or someone else "broke his heart."
He can scream like nothing I've ever heard before. It's the same death scream if he accidentally scraped a toe or if he broke an arm. Just kidding he's never broken an arm, but if he did, I don't think he could scream any louder than he already does. I get so many looks from people because I basically ignore him while everyone else comes to his rescue, wondering if he's close to dying. A little dramatic at times.
He changed Tanner's diaper for me one time when I was still sleeping. Cutest thing ever.
He has done great in preschool and is learning to blend words together to read. He's also learning to write and if he's given small parameters, he has some pretty good handwriting!
David can self-entertain so well. He's interesting to watch interact with other kids. He does whatever he wants and doesn't really care what other people think.
He like to brag about how he can fold clothes better than Grammy ;)
He's my super hero and runs around with Tanner in his cape and mask to scare off all of the bad guys and save me.
He's become good friends with Tanner since Carden has been in school. They play together great most of the time. Tanner is the stinker, but David does a pretty good job of putting up with it.
He still misses Carden everyday. He'll cry about it sometimes and tell me that he just misses his brother so much. When I told him that he wouldn't be in the same class as Carden next year he burst into tears. So much love in his little body.
Happy birthday Davey Gravey!
