My sweet buddy J is FIVE! He is our 'laid back' kid, who loves life, loves making people laugh, and is very affectionate. He's super excited about starting school this year, and chill about the distinct possibility of getting glasses next week. In spite of being miffed about going, he had a great time at his annual check-up, making all the nurses laugh by checking his muscles in every reflection we passed, and chatting up anyone who paused in his general vicinity. He's holding strong on his growth chart 12% for weight, and 15% for height. My little man - now if they measured hands, that might be a different story, with his bear paws. He also bumped up a Sunday School class, and is loving his Aunt Kari time!
