Me: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Lex: A pirate.... or a rocket.
Me: You mean an astronaut?
Lex: Um. Yes, an astronaut.

Lex: Oatmeal with blueberries and honey.
Me: What's your favorite snack?
Lex: Still oatmeal with blueberries and honey.
Me: What's your favorite thing we did this summer?
Lex: Went to Ohio
Me: What's your favorite thing to do outside?
Lex: Play on the tire swing and the other swing and the slide.
Me: What's your favorite thing to do inside?
Lex: Play with my front loader
Me: What is your favorite color?
Lex: brown and white
Me: What makes you happy?
Lex: Eli sharing with me (awwwwwww!)

Here's a look back at Lex's past year:
Lex's 4th Birthday
First Roller Coaster ride - he loved it!
We saw lots of things at the state fair.
He looked dashing during family pictures.
and got really good at making silly faces.
He got a new loft bed handed down from a cousin - bad picture - sorry.
One of many, many hiking trips. He looks so young in this picture! Must have been right before a growth spurt because he has really thinned out since then.
Worked on riding his bike.
He has gotten really good at making letters!
A very, very happy train ride at the zoo.
He's had lots and lots of t-ball practice in the backyard. Should be ready for the team next summer!
He found a ginormous icicle in the back yard (yes those are socks on his hands - the mittens were left at preschool).
Got really good at climbing up on the tire swing.
And then wanted to swing on it all the time.
|He had his first dentist appointment - No cavities!|
And lots of fun in the sun.
