Stockton had a great birthday! He was very interested in birthdays in general this year, especially the age change. He would ask, "Am I 5? Am I 6?" One time I wasn't paying attention and I just said "Yes" not realizing he had just asked if he was 6, and he panicked haha. He wasn't ready to move up yet. But when his birthday came he was proud to leave 5 behind.

Jack and I had a mini photoshoot while we were waiting for preschool
Then Claire was so squishy and warm that when she fell asleep I couldn't help but continue to hold her for her nap. Sweeties.

Stockton is so special. He is challenging and hilarious and kind and interesting. He loves hugging us and being cozy with his purple blankie. He currently loves Toy Story 4 and Lego Movie 2. He has dramatically increased his meal variety by eating hot lunch at school. He's willing to try way more things and it's been great! His favorite foods continue to be spaghetti, nutella sandwiches, and "candy bar granola bars" (the chocolate covered ones that are literally candy). He loves Mario Kart and playing with his siblings. He still has his select few favorite jeans and shirts, but he has also opened up some new options, especially shirts or pullovers with thumb holes. He loves wearing pretend glasses (even to school). He'll wake up in the morning and come out to the couch, and then realize he didn't put his glasses on and run back to grab them saying "I can't see!" He has come such a long way from a couple birthdays ago. We are so grateful for this blonde-haired blue-eyed boy who we get to call ours! Happy birthday buddy!
