Curtis has grown up SO much this year! When I just look at his birthday picture from last year, I can really see it! He lost his top teeth, has grown several inches, filled out some, and his hair seems a little darker. He joined Cub Scouts this year and also played soccer, basketball, and baseball. It seems that soccer is his favorite. He began the year cat-obsessed, which led us to getting our cat, Salty. During the past several months, his focus has shifted to Batman. Everything is Batman. He'd write "Batman Curtis" on his school papers and draw Batman pictures all over them. He nicknamed Andy's new car the "Batmobile." He has the best imagination and is so content to play with his legos and create new worlds and different scenarios. I also consider him as the comic relief in our family. Just the other day, Andy and I were in our room intervening between Bella and Graydon over some fight they were having. While I was considering what to say to them, I looked out towards the doorway and there was Curtis, strutting down the hallway. . . completely naked! We all just burst out laughing!

This year was his turn for a birthday party. Of course, he wanted a Batman theme. He also wanted his party at the ice arena. This was our first time having a party somewhere other than our house. I must admit, it was much easier! Here are some pics from his party. . .

Here is his birthday slideshow. I had a hard time choosing a song this year and decided to ask everyone over dinner if they had any good ideas for a slideshow song. Curtis said, "Use 'Angel Armies' because it's my favorite song." I hadn't even considered that song, but it's true - that has been Curtis's favorite song for several years now. Perfect choice.

Here are some highlights from Curtis's past year!


Happy birthday sweet boy!
