Look who's 4.5!

Our little Elijah Luke is 4 1/2 years old today. Here are some highlights of his life currently:
  • Continues to insist that he be called "Sidge." He even told the security guard at the airport that he was not Elijah when it was read off at the airport. He says that only Abigail may call him Elijah. "Li-jah."
  • He talks all the time and about anything and everything. His language has gotten very clear, but he is still has some issues with the letter "l" and other "lisp" sounding sounds.
  • Is still incredibly passionate. Used words like, "It's my favorite. That's the best ever. I hate that." As I wrote this bullet he actually just got sent to his room for hurling a superhero figurine at his brother. He does everything with great gusto.
  • Is incredibly tall for his age. Usually taller than 5 and even 6 year olds that he meets.
  • Wears size 13 shoe.
  • Wears size 5T or 6T clothing.
  • Loves to eat.
  • Loves to watch TV.
  • Currently "into" Superheroes, volcanoes, earthquakes, and outer space. (Definitely a nature lover like his Daddy.)
  • While he loves the superheroes immensely (his current favorite is "Flash" -- he truly believes when he runs that we can barely see him), I think that he would be less into them without the influence of his big brother.
  • Is usually very sweet with Abigail and will stop and play with her frequently.
  • Loves to imagine.
  • Loves other people.
He is squeezable and loveable and huggable and just plain sweet. His heart always seems pure ... I am still so amazed that I had the privilege to bear and be the mommy for this little boy.
