We cannot believe that our baby is now a full-blown four-year old. Time sure does fly. I remember, sleep deprived, wishing away the first couple weeks, we’ll have to make sure not to do it with the next one, because it is gone in the blink of an eye. Crazy that his next birthday he won’t even be the only kid and he’ll be off to school soon after!
Canton enjoyed his day with Pap, Rhonda, Mike’s family, and several friends. We are grateful to Lilamae and her family for making the trip from Floyd, Can sure missed his girl. He’s also made a few new friends since being in Harrisonburg: our neighbor Alex, feisty Elias who definitely keeps Can going, and twins Chase and Luke that are just a month younger than Can.
Nanny sent a stuffed Pluto and a Planetarium Projector and has already been through a set up batteries! He is in LOVE with this thing! It lights his bedroom with starts, planets, and other space things that Can could tell you much more about than I could. Thanks Nanny and Grandpa!
Can has been obsessed with boxes and building since we moved here and discovered the joys of Costco. So Pap, being the creative guy he is, found the biggest fridge box and made Canton a little clubhouse that has provided hours of entertainment! Can was super impressed!!
At his four-year checkup he weighed in at 37.5 pounds and 40 inches, right where he needs to be. But, he so impressed Dr. Ashton with his knowledge and social skills he commented “you are the smartest 4-yr old I’ve ever met, and that’s a lot of kids!”
I hope time slows down a bit, but I know it is only going to get faster, so take time to enjoy all the blessings you have and hug everyone just a little tighter next time.
To the next four years and beyond! 🙂
Oh, almost forgot, this was the first year Can actually tried his cake. He ate the icing and complained the next day how much his belly hurt because of the cake, lol!
