Forrest in 2014...

Will be 5.....(WHAT, when did that happen!!!)
Is still a firecracker;
Is a smart smart cookie who impresses his parents daily;
Can beat his parents in his Memory and matching game hands down, (I swear folks, crazy memory on this kid!) and can be quite obsessive about it as well, ("I'll trade you 4 matching games for a 20 minute walk outside....)
Is driving his parents crazy over his Winter Break....(ooooh boy Pre-School can't restart soon enough!)
Is quickly teaching his parents through indirect means, (can we say agression, fits, hyperactive running around the house 20 times in two minutes?) that we MUST keep this kid busy.
Loves, loves, LOVES his Legos
Is so, so SO frustrated by his Legos and his little brother constantly dismantling them
Is obsessed with his little not the greatest way, (luckly little brother is a tough cookie and a smart one at that but the honeymoon period in brotherdom is OVER.....)
Is so physically talented...frisbee, catch, in the water, out of the water, jog two miles with Mom, hike 4 miles with name it, he can do it----IF it's his OWN idea!
Still hates clothes...(which, makes the Winter very hard yet again this year)
Is an awesome eater....and a healthy one at that. Eats his salad every night like a champ, though admittedly his "favorite noodles" are top-a-ramen and he's definitely got a thing for hot dogs...
Is a lover, not a fighter....until he's a fighter...then he's got to sleep...we think....

and we're still figuring him out! But the hands down best thing is that life will never be boring with this kid. ANNND he starts Kindergarten in 8 short months....whattttttt!

It is amazing how fast these boys have grown up...both of yours and both of mine! I can not believe that 5 is around the corner!!! Talin sounds like a lot of energy and a lot of fun. I love how unique your boys are!
