This boy…is FIVE!
Judd is sweet!
My sweet sensitive Judd. When asked who you love you say “both” (mommy and daddy). You are never far from your Daddy’s side if he is home. You still want to do and be just like Daddy. You love football, baseball and basketball.
Judd, you love your siblings. Oh, I know you love Anna Kate and Sadie, and I’m sure you will grow to have a wonderful relationship, but you really love Jake. The two of you play and play and play, and most of the time, very well together. Your giving heart just amazes us. You are SO giving and considerate especially to your siblings. We love watch you hug and take care of Sadie.
This is one memory that we don’t want to forget: One night Jake was going to get a spanking for some very apparent defiance and as your Daddy was walking into your room YOU stop him and say, “Daddy, don’t spank Jake. Spank me instead.”
You are a FIVE year old boy who still wants me to help you brush your teeth, put your shoes on your feet, and brush your hair. Just to see your smile makes others smile. Your gentle and caring spirit is seen in all you do. At five, you still sleep with 8 stuffed animals positioned ever so perfectly in your bed. You share and want others to be happy.
School is something that you are enjoying very much. You can write, are learning to read, telling time, counting money and infatuated with numbers. When we are sitting around the dinner table you are always asking: Daddy, what is 1+99, what is 89-7+3+7=? I am glad that you are enjoying going to Classical Conversations and memorizing so many things. I am impressed at your desire to learn.
Judd, this is your last year of Cubbies and I am praying you continue to hide the Word in your heart. I love to hear you walk around quoting John 1:1-7.
Judd, you are a beautiful person, inside and out and we all love you so much.
