train.gif - 7233 Bytes  Aaron Andrès Seals  plane.jpg - 2918 Bytes

At 4 years old, Aaron was a fairly typical little boy.  He loved planes, trains and trucks.  He loved music and stories.  He had unbridled energy.  He was his own person with his own way of doing things, and he would let you know it.  His speech was getting clearer.  He loved to learn.

He was starting to write his name.  He recognized trapezoids, stop signs (and could tell you it was a red octagon), exit signs and the logos for Jeep, Ford, Chevy, Kroger, Marsh and Meijer.  He was the ultimate backseat driver, telling you to stop at stop signs and red lights, to go at green lights and to turn "this way" or "that way."

At his pediatric check-up on July 19th, Aaron weighed 36 pounds and was 43 inches tall.  He was still potty-training, but as veteran mothers told us, "you can't force it."  (He had mastered #1, but was fighting us on #2.)

Aaron and Melissa had a typical sibling relationship.  They got along well and made up games together, but would turn around and start fighting in a heartbeat.  They definitely looked out for each other, though.

Here are the pictures:
