Happy Big 4th Birthday!

Last month we had a three year old and three month old. Today we have a four month old and a brand new four year old! Happy Birthday Brennan Abbott Swafford!

You have gone from being a toddler to a big boy this year Brennan. You are so full of personality! You  like: trains, superheroes, maps, learning anything, school, helping take care of Rowe, going to restaurants, going most anywhere but especially the train store (Southerland Station), playing with Daddy, and so much more. You're favorite toy right now is your trains and you're favorite book is The Little Red Caboose. You have decided you want to have a lot of say in your clothes and shoes, and right now you prefer to just wear pajamas all the time (most often mismatched and inside out). You have such a kind heart and really want others to be pleased with you. You are also a leader and don't hesitate to give directions when you feel it's needed. You're all boy, rough and tough, but also love to give hugs, kisses and cuddles. Eating is probably one of your least favorite activities right now, unless it is candy or something sweet. You eat very few things readily. You're choice would always be peanut butter, chicken nuggets, or macaroni and cheese. A few highlights from most of your weeks: Pens and Pages two days a week, church on Wednesday night and Sunday, time at Nonna and Papa's some weeks, and time at home. You are loving preschool! If Mrs. Penny says it, it's the law to you (and we're good with that). It's amazing how independent and grown up you've become this year. I can't wait to see what is to come!

Wow! How you have changed in a year!

Today, Daddy and I woke you up singing Happy Birthday. We had chocolate chip muffins for breakfast, and yours had sprinkles. You opened your presents and played for a little while. We all went to Biscuit's Backyard for a while, and then had pizza and gelato at Sam and Greg's. We got to celebrate your birthday buddy Elijah's first birthday with his party, and then you were excited to get back home and play some more. It has been so much fun to celebrate with you!
