GJ is my sweetheart. He loves his mama. He still has chubby cheeks that shake when he runs. He loves berries, pretty much any kind, mostly strawberries and blueberries. He does not like to play with his brother unless he is in the mood. He copies him when they are being silly though. He likes to look at books, but will only let you read it if it is at his desired pace. He likes flying things, namely the new helicopter he got which his brother is constantly trying to steal. His face lights up so much when he smiles and laughs, which dad can usually get him to do best by being silly. He knows all his letters and can count well, but the colors still seem to evade him (everything is orange). He is a very laid back kid, starting to get quite opinionated with certain things (he must wear lighting mcqueen jammies every night to bed). He loves marbles and will usually play with a toy for long amounts of time (direct contrast to brother). He really is such a joy and so low key, he has a perfect place in our family. He gives me the best hugs and kisses. He insists on praying every time one needs to be said, though leaves out the entire middle. He always makes me laugh.

For his birthday, we had a busy day! We went to the park, the library, had chicken nuggets, met up with Aunt Linny and went to the zoo, (that baby elephant is the cutest) picked up daddy for dinner then had chocolate cupcakes (as you can see, the first batch of frosting didn't quite work out) and then had presents and played in the (wet, oops-I left the lid off) sandbox with his new sand toys.
I love you GJ! So glad you are part of our family!

He's smiling so much! What happened to Mr. Serious? I love him hiding his face in that one picture.
Glad you all had a fun day (especially cleaning up that frosting ;)
