We sure love this little man! He gives us a run for our money for sure, but he can be incredibly sweet and funny and charming too. He has grown so much this year. He's gone up three shirt sizes! He's huge!
He enjoyed his birthday. We had tasty cake, and he got some fun presents: some cool trucks, a Cars book and....
a "Jake and the Neverland Pirates" sword! A few weeks ago, Henry was poking around in the spare bedroom (where I had gifts not so well hidden), where he uncovered this gift. I walked in to find him holding it in his lap, staring. I asked him what he was doing, and he looked up at me and almost whispered "Mom! It's a Jake sword!" I took it away, telling him that it was supposed to be for his birthday. Then almost every day up to when we left for Idaho, he asked if it was his birthday. He was so excited for this sword!
