Hank at 5

Hank turned 5 on Sept 18.  I can't believe he is 5 already!
Feels like yesterday he was born.
we celebrated his birthday by taking cupcakes to school.
At home we had steak, at his request, along with Mac and Cheese and corn on the cob.  Some of his favorties!  We also had an ice cream cake.
The following Saturday we had his birthday party.

Hank started another year of pre-school.  Next year he will be able to go to Kindergarden.
We just had his 5 year check-up and he wights 54 lbs and is 45 1/4 inches tall.  He is in the 90 and 95 percentile for his age.  He currently has a size 12 1/2 foot too.  He is starting to wear size 6 clothing.
