Five Years Old
My Appearance: I am now 44 inches tall and weigh 41 pounds. I am in the 75% for my heights and right about 50% for my weight. I am in 5T clothes but I will be in size 6 pants really soon. My feet are also growing and now I wear a child size 12, it won’t be long before I get into the big kid sizes. I like to keep my hair short only because I don’t like to have to dry it when I get out of the bath or do my hair before school. I also like to wear boxer underwear now. I call the other underwear “baby underwear” and won’t wear them.
Milestones: One big thing I did this past year was have my first sleepover at a friend’s house. Sometimes when Mom is in the hospital with Adilene and Dad is on call I get to go sleep over at my friend Emma’s house. I love it. I also stopped wearing pull-ups at bed time and so I got to redecorate my bedroom. I even got a big boy bed!
Daily Routine: I like to wake up early and so my day starts around 6:30am. I eat breakfast (muffins or oatmeal are my favorite) and watch a few cartoons before I get going. I go to school 5 days a week but only in the mornings. I love school and I am learning so much. I know how to spell and write my name along with “mom” and “dad.” My favorite part of school is playing with other kids. Each week we have a new theme we learn about and my favorite so far is learning about outer space. I can name all the planets in order and tell you about each one! When I get home from school I eat lunch and then I go rest in my room. I fall asleep about half the time. In the afternoons, I like to play with my sister. Building blocks and coloring are some of my favorite things to play with but I also love to dress up and be different superhero’s. I like Captain America and Spiderman the most. Eating at meal times is still a little difficult for me and I would much rather just snack all day, this makes mom and dad a little grouchy when I don’t eat me dinner. At bedtime, I must sleep in superhero pajamas that look exactly like the superhero’s costume. Sometimes these types of pajamas are hard to find and so mom has had to sew some.
