Five is one of those landmark birthdays where you really feel the transition between life stages happening. Where we used to have a pre-schooler, we now have a rising Kindergartener. Where we used to have a baby, now we have a kid. The last several months have been full of physical and developmental growth, and it’s been amazing to see Cooper changing and maturing right before our eyes. He is super proud to be five years old and so excited about starting school. This summer has easily been one of our most fun yet, and we’re looking forward to all that this next year holds for us!
Cooper at FIVE:
Likes: Swimming using “armies,” Legos (especially mini-figures), Disney Infinity, American Ninja Warrior, “normal” doughnuts (aka plain glazed!), Minecraft, YouTube videos, superheroes (we’re generally Team Marvel, but Batman and Superman have a strong pull for little boys!), snuggles, pillow forts, Paw Patrol, and knowing how words are spelled.
Dislikes: Being corrected in any way, holding hands in a parking lot, trying new foods.
