Today our little dude is five-years-old. Erik is finally close to 40 pounds and getting taller. He isn't a great eater, but he sleeps like a champ. He loves running and playing outside. What he lacks in size, he makes up in noise. He is tough, he can handle a lot of rough play with his big brother. He is affectionate and sweet, always wanting to help with cooking or chores. He is romantic. He recently told his teacher, "I think my eyes are falling in love with you."
Erik is funny. I've been watching old videos of the kids. This VIDEO of Erik at four-months-old shows how happy he has always been. Check out this VIDEO of Erik at almost two-years-old. Oh and look at this VIDEO!
