Five Years Old

How do I have a five year old?  I am seriously too young for that!!  Rylin turned five last Saturday and I can tell you that he has literally grown up so much over the last few weeks.  He is for sure my wild child, but I am noticing maturity in so many areas.  He still loves to be outside, climbing, yelling, and running, but he also will sit and play with Legos, draw, and listen to books more than he ever cared to previously.  He is a stinker when it comes to listening and obeying, but so so sweet.  He can butter you up with words so fast and loves to snuggle and hug.  He's outgoing and confident, always talking to strangers old and young wherever we go.  He loves telling stories and retelling what he's learned at school or church, almost always adding his own creative details.  He leaves me in stitches daily with some of the crazy things his little mind dreams up.  His favorite things right now are Ninja Turtles, Super Heros, playing games on the Kindle, playing board games(he's pretty good), and Legos.  His favorite foods are pizza and French fries (which he mostly gets in healthy versions) and chocolate ice cream with a cherry on top (the cherry is important).  He loves his little brother and is constantly getting in trouble for "pestering" aka hugging and kissing until Miles screams.

Two weekends ago he had a Rock n Roll birthday party at a local skating rink complete with a nacho bar, guitar cake, and microphone cupcakes.  It was pretty funny watching a bunch of five year olds skating, many for the first time!  I think some of the adults had just as much fun!
