Erin's drawings

I know I did. Life has been hectic. We've been trying to potty train Alvin (epic failure). We've been working on the house. Mostly, just spending time with each other too. I am going to try to post more frequently.

Today's post revolves around Erin. She brought me her sketchbook. Wow. I am totally amazed by her artistic abilities. I think she inherited my grandfather's drawing ability. Here are just some of her drawings.

Happy 5th Birthday, Alvin

Dear Alvin,
       Once again, I'm in sheer astonishment at how you are now. Five years ago, today, you were born. It was a Tuesday also. You were born at 4:53pm. You were 7lbs, 2oz in weight and were 20 inches long. Pretty impressive for being nearly a month early. Today, you weigh 34 lbs,5 ozs and you are 39 inches tall. You are now in your second year of preschool and you are loving every minute of it. You've come a long way baby boy. Your Daddy and I love you so very much.
