Jonathan is 4 years old today, and he has been eagerly anticipating this birthday for quite some time now. He will say, "When I am 4, I will . . . ", so he obviously has high hopes for this year! He is such a sweet little boy, with a wonderful smile (but not so much for pictures, LOL. He should have been born in the 1800's, because when we pull out the camera he either gets very serious and solemn, or he closes his eyes). He loves his big brothers and his little sisters. He especially loves whatever his older brothers love at the moment, which right now happens to be Star Wars and Bionicles. He has great manual dexterity!
We have been dragging out his birthday celebration. We started Thursday night with presents and ice cream while Grandma and Grandpa were still here. Then we brought the R2D2 cake to Bible study last night, and tonight we will have his special birthday dinner. He has selected sausage roll, along with salad (since he loves that with Italian dressing) and some other sides to be named later. Right now the birthday boy is enjoying playing lightsabers with his brothers and the other kids on the cul-de-sac. It's a great day to be 4!
