April 17th marked Grant and Maria’s 4th birthday. It was a day met with great excitement as we had their party scheduled for the evening and I was off work so we spent the whole day together.
4 year old stats:
Grant – 36 lbs, 2 oz and 40 inches tall (50th percentile), favorite color is orange, favorite stuffed animal is a small dog named Charlie, and favorite toys are worker trucks and Ninja Turtles.
Maria – 33 lbs, 2 oz and 38 1/2 inches tall (25th percentile), favorite color is purple, loves anything that sparkles, favorite stuffed animal is a small dog named Bandit, and favorite toys are her coloring supplies and Barbie dolls.
I looked around at their party and thought it was pretty awesome that they could celebrate with all four grandparents and three great grand parents. They don’t know how cool that is, yet.
They received big kid bikes from Jeremy and me and got the hang of it as the day went on. We finished off the day with a ride around the block and both commented that their butt’s hurt…they haven’t developed the appropriate bike seat butt callous yet!
We continue to be thankful for the joy and challenges that these two bring to us daily.
