Evan ~ 6 Years

Happy Birthday, Evan!  I can’t believe my first baby boy is 6!  As tradition, I have been wanting to write down some of our six year old's loves and accomplishments from this past year so that he and I can remember.  However, I thought since he is a pretty intelligent 6 year old, it might be better to do this post from his perspective.  I'll try to be a careful transcriptionist as I type his words.  We really do just love this sweet little man more and more every day!

FAVORITE THING TO DO OUTSIDE:  play games like hop scotch, riding my scooter, and pretending I am a ninja and sword fighting

FAVORITE TOY TO SLEEP WITH:  Rexy (his stuffed Rex from Toy Story)

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO EAT FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY:  pancake shop (I guess he means IHOP which we very seldom eat.)  He also said Chick-fil-a and pizza.   

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP:  dentist, tennis player, or golf player

WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT YOU:  I am a good big brother.  I am a good reader.  I am good at counting, math, and science.  ~ Evan's answers.   You are special because God made you with your beautiful red hair, sweet and loving personality, adorable laugh and smile, and a big heart.  ~ Mommy's answers

I love you to the moon and back, little man!  You are truly becoming an extraordinary person as you continue to be so loving and caring and kind.  You have excelled in your first year of big school and have truly loved the experience.  Your reading skills alone have amazed us as you now read on an almost second grade level.  We are so proud of you!  You are becoming more brave and independent every day.  We pray that you will continue to allow God to direct your life and choices every day and that you will know and feel His love for you.

Love always,

Your Mommy

    1. Thank you, Annabelle! Gotta celebrate these little men, huh?

  4. Happy Birthday Evan! I loved reading about all your favourites. I hope you had such a great day.

    1. He was really being silly and not very cooperative at answering the questions so some of the answers weren't really typical of him, but I guess it'll do! Haha!


Leave some love! Your comments make me happy!
