Henry is Six!

Henry turned six on April 13th. He had his party on the 16th, which I will post about in a moment.

This year has flown by. All of the sudden, kindergarten is almost over. Henry plays T-ball twice a week, is reading easily on his own, loves to create and play and sing and talk. He tries to tell knock knock jokes (with little success), makes up elaborate Star Wars games with his brother, climbs trees, rides his new scooter, and generally leads a happy and fun life. He is very grown up in some ways, but still our little boy in others. He is adamant that he should not need to go into the women's restroom with me anymore, but he also still sleeps with his baby doll, Garrict, after lovingly bundling him up in the same blanket in which we brought Henry home from the hospital.

Here is Henry on his birthday morning:

Here is Henry's birthday interview, which is a tradition that we started last year:

While I am posting videos about Henry, here is an awfully cute one. Henry has been learning a dance at school--his school focuses on the arts and they have dance class instead of PE. Here he is showing off his moves at home:

Happy Birthday Henry! "Now you are six!" I can hardly believe you have gotten so big. I love the birthday blog. I love the interview and the dance videos. And I really enjoyed seeing all the photos from our fun visit. Thanks!
Love, Grandma Becca
