According to Bryson, he had 3 birthdays: his church birthday, preschool birthday and his special birthday. He asked me for probably 2 months straight at the beginning of the year every Sunday when someone came up to be sung to in Primary for their birthday, "When is it going to be my turn?!?" October 30th was finally his turn! He relished in going up to the front and everyone singing to him.
His preschool birthday
He shared some chocolate frosted donuts with sprinkles with his classmates
Opening presents on his "special" birthday
He requested a dinosaur cake again this year. I probably should have done something different from the exact same cake as last year, but creativity is not my strong suit. I should have left it up to Matt who is the creative one in our family. Bryson enjoyed making it with me though!
He enjoyed a FaceTime with Grandma and Grandpa on his birthday and going out for an ice cream cone with Pawpaw a few days after his birthday.
He is still figuring out the concept of time. He likes to say, "We went to Disney World last week right?" Everything is "last week."
"Like duh" and "I told you so" are his favorite phrases.
A few weeks ago, Bryson took a sucker without asking and knowing we would have said no. Matt asked him, "Bryson, did you eat a sucker?" Bryson responded, "What's the right answer? Yes or no?"
Yesterday I freaked out because I was driving and all of a sudden I saw a lizard in my car on the passenger dashboard. After safely pulling over, I opened the window and Bryson helped shoo him out. We took off again and I expressed that I wasn't sure the lizard lived if he was still hanging onto my car. Bryson told me, "You squished the lizard with your tire. Heavenly Father is so mad at you!"
Bryson and Matt have a cute relationship. Every morning before Matt leaves for work, they tease back and forth where Matt says, "I love you." Bryson will respond, "I don't love you" in a singsongy voice and Matt will say, "You better say 'I love you' or I'm going to tickle you" etc. Or they'll go back and forth saying, "I love you more" over and over again. The other morning Matt said, "I love you more." Bryson responded, "I love you the most and stop talking about it!"
We need to catch it on video, but Bryson loves singing "One Call Away" by Charlie Puth. It's so cute.
I still need to schedule his 4yo wellness visit--our pediatrician that I have used for all my boys and the last 9 years just dropped our insurance. :-/ I haven't gotten around to finding a new one yet.
