Happy Birthday Brock
Today, my Brockman is the BIG 5! Wow! Where does time go....My middle one will be going to kindergarten next year.
Brock has a fun and booked day today. He is at school right now, where I will be joining him for some cookie cake to celebrate with his class..lots of icing(he requested). Then, we are heading to Bryce's first baseball game(coaches pitch). Go Rangers!!! Following the game we are heading to Brock's favorite place, Chucky Cheese. We are going just as a family of 5, that way Bryce & Lilly can give Brock his presents that they personally picked out for him. It only took an hour for them to find the best present for him!! Ha! Brock will have his birthday party with friends & family at Cypress Academy(of course..Brock loves it there) this weekend. Then, family will come back afterwards to help watch his eyes pop out as he opens up gifts from them. As many of you know, Bryce & Lilly seem to favor each other in the similar attitude contest. However, Brock is very distinctive about showing & expressing his thoughts. He doesn't like to be center of attention or up on stage for any reasons. Much less, have his picture taken at school can sometimes do him in. Brock has always been strong willed & very hard headed, like me, but we know what we want when we want it. Ha! Here are some of the moments I cherish with him. Every night after I put the kids to bed I check my emails. Brock will get up about 15min later & peek around at me & say, "Mom I was just checking on you." It melts me, because I'm always the one checking on them, but Brock checks on me. Gotta love him. Brock also portrays himself as "tough dude" with friends & family. However, I see the sweet needed side of him, when he wants to be rocked. It is our time to bond(he bonds with daddy through rough housing)& for me to talk to him or just enjoy the quiet sound of our heart beats. I even like to sit there & smell his hair, or study his perfect hands & face. How this perfect baby is growing up into this perfect lil Brock.
Brock is a very active boy. No...let me clarify this 110% BOY!!! He loves to ride his bike, scooter, play soccer, baseball, and go swimming. His absolute favorite is gymnastics. Probably not to mention he is very good at it, but he loves flipping, and doing the rings(has to get his hands chalked up). Brock likes to be challenged. The more of a competition it is the better he is at it. He is our little go getter athlete who runs with the big boys..his brother! Brock seems to be head over heels for GI Joe toys. GI Joe this & GI Joe that is all he talks about. It is just amazing how God has blessed Shane & I with our lil Brockman. We love you buddy and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
