Ayden is 4!

Ayden is four today! He has grown so much this last year. He is easier to reason with and quicker to understand things. The result, he is a much happier child. That means the rest of us are happier too! Ayden goes to a new Daycare that is like a preschool. He recognizes not only his name but the name of all the kids in his class. I would not say he is reading but he is starting to see the pattern in letters and words. I was writing something yesterday that started with a 'T' and he said, "That's like Tyler's name!" Yes! It sure is! He is very opinionated and lets us know exactly how he feels. If the radio in the car is on he may yell, "Turn it up" or "Turn it off" or even, "Put on a boy song." Unfortunately he has my love of sugary sweets and will try to sneak them if possible. He still loves his chocolate milk but enjoys it less now, it is more of a treat. Ayden likes to eat tacos, spaghetti, pizza, chicken nuggets (but not chicken), popcorn, applesauce, bananas, oatmeal and pop-tarts. He understands jokes and likes to help around the house. Aunt Holly is coming to visit us this weekend and asked if we could hold off his birthday party until she is here. So, we will have cake and a special meal on Friday! Ayden chose a Dora and Diego cake. I can't wait, it's going to be so fun.
Here is Ayden at each birthday. (I am missing birthday 2, all of the pictures were on Poppy's camera and I can not find them.)

Ayden's birth day:

His pre-reading skills are good compared to what my boys had at age 4! He is cute!

Thanks! I think so too because none of my other kids were recognizing words yet. He's always been interested in letters.
