Topher is 5! (and a day short of a month…)

April 30, 2013

man my blogging skills have been terrible this year! but somehow i managed to blog twice in april (three if i get this up in the next few days). but i didn’t blog about my kids birthdays’ until a month after the fact. better late than never right???

so, without further ado- let’s do Topher’s fifth year rundown:

Name: Christopher Joseph Sunjae Watson
Height: 41 inches (good for most rides at Disneyland! unfortunately that includes Tower of Terror)
Weight: 36 lbs
(that puts him at the 10th percentile for both height and weight… apparently Topher is favoring his Ham genes as opposed to his Watson ones… for now…)
Favorite Things To Do: Building Legos, playing with Legos, looking at Legos, reading Lego instruction manuals, watching Star Wars, and talking about how much he didn’t like going on The Tower of Terror at Disneyland (separate post..)
Favorite Foods: Grilled cheese sandwiches, Mc Donalds hamburgers, soups, chicken pot pie, korean spicy pork, candy, warm drinks (especially apple cider)
Hilarious/Terrible moment recently: During March Madness (college basketball for those who truly don’t know or care about sports) we had the tv on to random games quite a bit. Topher was sitting in the living room playing with hid Legos and then he looks up at the tv and says: “Look mom! Those girls are playing basketball! Why are they doing that? Only boys play basketball…”
That’s right folks- my son is already a chauvinistic pig.
At least he’s easy on the eyes.
(Don’t worry, I am trying to teach him about women’s rights. I will have him fixed up and ready to be married in the next twenty years.)
On Topher’s birthday he got to go to school- which is fine cause he likes school. AND he brought in donut holes (munchkins) from one of his favorite eateries- Dunkin Donuts!
Then we had lunch at home- chicken pot pie 🙂 (the microwavable variety. thanks Marie Callendar!)
And then we went to the mall to meet one of my friend’s who lives way up north, and we had cookies, cupcakes, and coffee. It was wonderful!
Then we came home and left Mia with a babysitter, and then we waited for Chris to get home from work (which was a miracle from the Lord himself) and we went to Mc Donalds with Topher’s bffs/cousins Gabe and Corban and Robert and Lindsay.
And THEN we met Topher’s twin, Barb, and Jerry and their housemate/our dogsitter Mariesa, at the movie theater to watch the Croods.
An EXCELLENT day if I do say so myself.
Here are some pics of Topher on his birthday and throughout the year:
