Happy Birthday, Cade

Dear Cade,

I have been trying to take some good pictures of you lately. You know? Around your birthday? You have not been interested. Your dad watched me edit these pictures of you the other night, and he was not impressed! I'm not sure what he wanted me to do. You just have no interest in smiling for the camera (or even standing still long enough for me to get you in focus).

You turn four today. My youngest is four. I can't quite wrap my mind around it. (How old does that make me?!)

This has been another year of change for you. Your sister went off to Kindergarten, leaving you at home by yourself. You have really come into your own, as a result. I have enjoyed the one-on-one time that we have had this school year. It looks very different than it did the year that Kennedy was in preschool. No trips to Target and Starbucks like we did before. Instead, we hang out at home or go on play dates with other little boys, namely Ezra.

Over Christmas break, Dad took you to Gangnam and got you signed up for preschool for next year. You are really excited about going to school, even though it isn't our school. You are already learning so fast, I'm excited to see what you learn in preschool! You can already count to 30 and you know most of the letter sounds. Most of this is a testament to your sister, because I'm not as good at sitting you down and working with you as I should be.

Everyone always comments on what a good kid you are (and how calm you are--for a boy!). You are very respectful, and for the most part, you listen well and are very helpful around the house. Today, one of the moms at play group said that she would love to be a fly in the wall in our house. What are my kids really like at home she wanted to know. Are you loud? Do you run around? She's under the faulty impression that you are always calm. That is so not true! You do things like run around the house with an umbrella...

You are still a great eater--you love spicy foods, especially fried chicken and Thai food. You eat more pizza in one sitting than I do. A couple of weeks ago when I asked you what your favorite food was, you told me it was soup. Last night, we had soup for dinner. You sat down and said, "I don't like soup." Before dinner was over, you said, "I love this soup!" It's official. I can't keep up with you!

You were so relaxed during your birthday celebration at play group yesterday. You told me that you needed to finish your crackers before you could blow out your candle even! You crack me up! I love you, little man. Happy birthday!
