Brandon's 5th birthday was yesterday. I can't believe it has already been 5 years since he was born, weighing only 1 pound, 14 ounces and 13 inches long. He has come such a long way in the past 5 years. He will be starting kindergarten in the fall and is so ready for it. He is already reading at an age equivalent of 7 years, 2 months and is doing math at an age equivalent of 6 years, 10 months.
We started Brandon's birthday off with donuts.
Then he opened his present from Wesley.
Then we went to Sesame Place for the day. Brandon LOVED going on the water slides there. We also saw Elmo and Big Bird which was a really big hit with Wesley. Brandon and Wesley's cousin, Ben, came with us to Sesame Place along with my parents.
When we came back from Sesame Place Brandon opened his present from us. He got a Wii. Ours broke about a year ago and Brandon has been dying for a new one. There was a really good deal a few weeks ago at Target so we decided to get him one. He was so excited when he opened it. He got a huge smile on his face and hugged it.
We ended the day with a birthday meal at our house (Brandon requested gnocchi) and Toy Story birthday cake.
