JD had a big month! He is now riding his bike without training wheels! Swinging independently is also a new favorite. It seems like we've been explaining how to pump his legs for years, but something Keith said to him a couple weeks ago clicked, and now he's running straight to the swings and flying super high for the entirety of our playground visits. He had his 5 year checkup and is tall, thin, and healthy. I cannot wait to see how well he does in Kindergarten!
|very serious and cautious|
|slowing down to smile|
|He asked me to take a picture of his sticker after class every day.|
|They can't get enough of him. I'm hoping his first words aren't "get out of his face" because he hears it all day.|
|He's happy about almost everything else.|
|JD left this note for me and told me to look at it when I missed him. He's such a thoughtful, sensitive sweetheart.|
|There was also celebratory cake for keeping everyone alive and well this summer.|
|We're getting married in the backyard of this beauty.|
|Keith has a big collection of antique bottles that I am hoping to incorporate.|
I was really hoping to get an update posted on the first of every month, but since I already blew that, I'm going to aim for an update around the beginning of each month. This will make up for the guilt I feel at being 4 years behind in getting pictures printed and into books- at least I'm preserving some moments in time so I can look back at them and smile whenever I'm about to lose my mind.
