Conversation on our way to preschool that morning in the car:
Brock: "I'm so excited Momma!"
Me: "What are you excited about?"
Brock: "Because today is my BIRF-DAY!"
He's so cute. :)
Back up to last Saturday when we celebrated his birthday at Chuck E. Cheese! (He pretty much celebrated his birthday all week!)
It really was a great deal - the kids played, stopped for pizza, played some more, sang and danced with Chuck E. Cheese, stopped for ice cream, then cashed in their tickets for a prize (no goodie bags required here!).

Finally, it was his official birthday! I stayed up until midnight the night before making cupcakes for Brock's big day and for him to bring some to school! The birthday boy requested vanilla cupcakes with sprinkles inside and blue frosting with circle sprinkles on top. Okay!
After working so hard on the cupcakes, I figured I'd let Amazon do my wrapping.....
I told Brock to hug the present from Aunt Carol & Uncle Jeff!

A few last words of Brock at this age.... he is our sensitive, but intense, little boy. He likes things loud (especially saying no) and his favorite activities are playing catch, soccer, or jumping off the couch. He also loves working with play-doh and really focuses on his "crafts" and how things work. He has started working on more complex puzzles and pretend play with his castles of "good guys" and "bad guys". He only wants to wear shorts while he's home and would rather "layer", having his shorts on under his pants when going out in the cold. He gets jealous when I am doting on Kade and needs to work on his frustration - he lashes out by throwing. We have conquered going to the bathroom standing up, but have made no headway with going #2. If he injures himself, it is the end of the world, but he will put the band-aid on ALL BY HIMSELF. He loves reading books and loves when I tell him a story. My sweet boy also loves giving hugs and giving kisses. He will always stop what he's doing and get Kade a toy.
I think this year will be so fun and cannot wait to watch my big boy grow and learn even more. Happy Birthday Brock. We love you so much.
