Our Four-Year Old!

Andrew is four and he's so excited about it!  A lot has changed in his daily life this year and he seems like such a big kid now.

I got a gym membership at the beginning of the year which means that Andrew started going to the Kids' Club there.  He did so well right from the start and he loves going.

Andrew has gone to many of the workshops at Lowes and Home Depot and loves coming home and playing with his project.  He still loves to show off things he made at the beginning of the year.

In October he started going to Little Wildcats preschool.  It's a preschool program run by the child development classes at the high school.  He looks so cute walking in with his big backpack!  It's only for two hours 2-4 days a week, but he has a great time and I can already tell he's learned a bunch.

Andrew loves being a helper and doing his "jobs," which sometimes include picking up toys, helping his brother, helping daddy with house projects, and making lists.  He's a boy after my own heart when it comes to making sure everything goes in its place (well, mostly) when it's time to clean up.

He has been fully day and night potty trained for a while now.  It's so nice that diapers are a thing of the past for him.  He occasionally gets up early to go to the bathroom but he's really good about going back to his room after and getting back in bed.

He's an awesome big brother, and is only getting better at it.  Sometimes when Brandon wakes up in the morning or from his nap, Andrew comes to me and says, "Brandon's awake.  I think he needs me."  It melts my heart a little bit!  Andrew gets a little possessive of his toys sometimes but for the most part he is great at playing with his brother and sharing.

Andrew is so excited to be four years old! He had a fun little party with friends last weekend and we went out for dinner and cupcakes on his actual birthday yesterday. We love Andrew so much and I'm loving seeing how he is growing and learning and becoming more independent.
