Happy 4th Birthday, Graydon!!!

Graydon is FOUR!  Some days I still think back to the fussy baby that he was and realize that we have come such a long way. 

Take a look at how much he has grown over the years.

Graydon is one of the sweetest little boys, and so easy to parent.  He willingly goes to bed, often telling us that he's tired.  I can count on one hand the number of times he has gotten out after being put to bed.  He enjoys eating all fruits and most vegetables.  And he is often very happy in the kitchen, helping me with whatever meal or snack I'm preparing.  

He has such a silly sense of humor - especially his knock knock jokes.

Example... 
Graydon : "Knock Knock!
Me:"Who's there?"
Graydon:"Banana Pants"
Me:"Banana Pants who?"
Graydon:"SOCKS!"

(And then he laughs hysterically.  And then I do because he is.  He has a very contagious laugh).

Graydon continues to amaze me with his intelligence.  He is a great teacher - to himself! Some of the things he's taught himself this year include shapes, some phonics, how to write all of the letters in the alphabet - including his name, and how to whistle. He sits very content in church with some markers and paper and writes letters and numbers and anything else he can think of. He discovered Super Mario Bros. this year and has become a fan.  When we're outside, he loves to ride bikes, hit the baseball, or go for a ride in the tire swing.

I can't get enough of this little boy.  I love him so much!!!

Happy birthday, Graydon!
