Dear William (55 months)

Dear William,

Today you are 55 months old!  What a fantastic month it has been.

You continue to be enamored with all things superhero.  We took a little trip to Kentucky for daddy to practice for a trail race he would be running there later in the month, and on the way we passed through a town named Metropolis.  The sign on the interstate boasted that it was the “hometown of Superman," so we stopped.  You got your picture taken with what might be the largest Superman statue in the world.

You were thrilled.

You continue to like to dress up in superhero costumes, sometimes while looking cross:

The Dark Knight

Sometimes while meditating.

Sometimes while running at the park (you ran faster than the kids who were on their bikes).

Or while swinging with your buddy.

You enjoy breakfast in bed on occasion.

And decorating me with stickers and then taking my picture:

You like taking selfies:

You love the movie Frozen.  We had several more cold, snowy days this month, and we passed the time by reenacting the movie.  You insisted on playing Elsa, while I played Anna.

We visited Grama Nan and Paw Paw this month to celebrate Paw Paw’s birthday.  You had so much fun.  You love visiting Grama Nan and Paw Paw.  You helped Paw Paw blow out his birthday candles, and you got to play Uno, too.

You and mama went to the Science Center.  You got to wear a lab coat and do some experiments (that didn’t actually work, oh well).

You made a friend there, and the two of you played for hours and hours!

At the end of the month, we went back to Kentucky for daddy to run his race. You got a kids' meal at Chipotle.

We stopped in Metropolis again.





During the race, you were in charge of cowbell.

Daddy did really well! We are so proud of him.

William, it has been a long, long winter. It seems like it has been winter forever. But the days are getting longer, and the sun is getting brighter, and hopefully the snow storms are done for a while. Spring will be here soon. We are all looking forward to that.


Love, Mama
