Because he's our big 4-year-old now!
He's in love with swords, the Beastie Boys (blame his father), Minions, and chips. He will hunt down the gum hidden in the house no matter how well you think you hid it. He will play outside in the water or on his bike any chance he's given. He adores our preteen and teenage neighbors and thinks he lives in their house (he will just walk on in and make himself at home without even knocking). His baby brother is about the best thing to ever come into his life and the two are almost inseparable when Malachi - or hun-yun as Abe calls him - is awake.
Since he's now 4, he gets to start the birthday interviews! My favorite.
