Owen…You’re 4 Years Old!

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 4 years since this little guy entered the world! Time sure does fly when you’re having fun. It makes me sad to see how much he’s grown up this past year. He definitely looks like a big boy now. I know there are a lot of changes coming up during the 4-5 year old year and that makes me even more sad. It’s hard to believe that this time next year we’ll be registering for kindergarten 😦

Ok, I’m going to pull it together now.
Owen is around the 42 inch mark for height. I only know this because they measured him at Magic Springs and he got to ride the big slide…haha!
He weighs somewhere around 35 pounds which is sad because chunky Aiden is gaining on him quickly!
Owen is such a joy and definitely keeps us on our toes! He’s so smart and just amazing us every day with what he is learning. He had a good first year of preschool and we’re excited to see what he will learn this next year. We’re doing a reading program this summer and seeing a lot of progress.
At age 4, Owen can….
  • count to 50
  • read some basic sight words
  • beginning to add some single digit numbers
  • count to 10 in Spanish
  • knows the days of the week
  • knows his shapes
  • knows his colors
  • write his first name
  • write some letters and short words
  • talk a blue streak!

Owen’s vocabulary is expanding every day and he’s beginning to use words like “actually” and phrases like “I promise” or “my daddy said…”….Lord help us! He talks from the time he wakes up until the time he goes to bed. He’s still not the best sleeper in the world but is definitely a lot better than this time last year.

Owen has a mad crush on Miss Brooke (one of his preschool teachers) and particularly likes girls with long hair. He’s been known to tell us (loudly) “hers is pretty!” if he sees a girl he likes. He’s got good friends at preschool and at church and is a social butterfly.

He’s enjoyed being on the swim team this summer and has really learned a lot (more pictures and a post to come soon). He’s definitely ready to go back to school and be in his routine with his friends and activities.

He’s a great big brother and is really sweet and good with babies and kids smaller than him. He’s very loving and will give you thousands of hugs and kisses every day.

We love you Owen!
