To Chandler

Dear Chan,
You are 5 today! The last 5 years have been some of the best of my life, simply because you are in it. You've been a headstrong boy since day one and have always wanted to do things for yourself and be independent. At the same time you are compassionate and loving, and quick to run and give me a hug if I stub my toe or feel sad.
You are really into transformers, action figures, trains, video games, and crafts right now. You also love to dress up like a super hero and play "battle" with Rowan and dad. Your favorite movie is anything new that is out. Favorite foods are corn dogs, Chinese (Kung Fu Panda food), Ice Cream, and cereal. You also love to drink water. If we give you a choice of any drink, you will always pick water.
I'm not sure how tall you are, (we'll find out when we go in for your yearly checkup) but are wearing 5T clothes and weigh about 40 lbs.
You say the funniest things lately and I'm not as good as I should be about writing them down. A few weeks you asked us if Jesus had feet. :)
When dad decided to grow a beard, you told him that it might grow as big as the house.
You ask lots of questions and are so smart. You can count to 100 and more, know all of your colors, shapes, and are starting to sound out words.
Your smile is contagious, and I'm so happy and proud to be your mom.
I hope you have a Happy Birthday, we'll do something fun today. :)
