So this is what five looks like...
Five. Five. That's a whole hand.
Five year olds play with Legos. All sorts of legos. And they build big, elaborate five-foot buildings with secret compartments.
Five year olds are also completely obsessed with Creepy Crawler Workshops, secret disguises and proclaim, "Dude! We were totally robbed!" while playing video games.
Five year olds also have elaborate rock collections, one for indoors and out. Washing rocks is a favorite activity.
Five year olds are also completely obsessed with food. Gluten-free food. We've tried stuff with wheat, sneaking it at preschool and experiencing the belly aches. We love gluten-free food.
Five year olds help cook dinner, make cupcakes, muffins and madeleines.
Five year olds particularly love madeleines, their new personal favorite.
Five year olds curl up on their mommy's lap, and lovingly whisper, "Even though I'm five, I'm still your baby."
Happy fifth birthday Griffin. I'll try to let you continue to grow up, as long as you hold your end of the bargain by still being my baby.
