Leo is five!!

Leo turned five on the first!! He had a great birthday filled with junk! Krispy Kreme donuts for his birthday snack at school, Chick-fil-a for lunch bunch with sister, and orange chicken take-out for dinner. (He just had a donut on Sunday after we had read "If You Give A Dog A Donut" several times, and he was smitten and decided to have donuts instead of cookies or cupcakes!)

Waking up to his present from us!


Lunch bunch with sister:

Leo didn't want his picture taken!

Which turned into Leo running around the nature trail at school. It was a beautiful day!

In the afternoon we played outside a lot, Nicholas brought Chinese food, and he opened so many presents! Thank you, family, for spoiling him! He loved the Evil Mobile, his new backpack for Kindergarten, his Nexo Knight activity book, and his MineCraft ax and sword!

And after dinner and presents, cake!

Quick facts about Leo!
1. Leo doesn't like crowds of people. He prefers playing with one or two friends to a whole block's worth.
2. Leo loves Olivia. They play Legos together and often sleep in the same room in his bunk beds. (This just changed this week to them sleeping in separate rooms, but they were in the same room for about the past six months.)
3. Leo loves Jason. They play so sweetly together in the mornings after Nicholas and Olivia go to work and school. They dance, they play hide-and-seek, and lots of other games.
4. Leo has a mind of his own and really wants to do things for himself. For example, when he hurts Olivia's feelings, he wants to figure out how to fix it himself.
5. Leo loves acting out stories with his Legos and other toys. He loves it when Nicholas or I do that with him. 
6. Leo loves hearing stories from Nicholas, who makes up silly stories at night. Leo thinks these are HILARIOUS and talks about them the next day.
7. Leo can read...a bit. He has about 7 sight words and is sounding out three letter words.
