Aaron Andrès Seals

At 5 years old, Aaron was getting ready for kindergarten.  He was reading beginner and Level 1 readers, and loved to read.  He loved music, especially Uncle Kracker and Matchbox 20.  He also understood the most amazing things - like a medical mask is used by a doctor.  He made connections that we didn't realize he understood.  Everybody who knew him said he was VERY smart.

His favorite show was Clifford the Big Red Dog.  He seemed to have outgrown Blue's Clues, but still watched Between the Lions.  His favorite movies included Shrek (especially the music), Toy Story and Toy Story 2, Cinderella and Tarzan.

At his five year checkup on July 17th (yes, mean mommy did the appointment, with shots, on his birthday), Aaron weighed 38 pounds and was 45 inches tall.  He was a Seals boy - tall and skinny still!

We had a busy summer, and went out to visit Grandmother and Grandpa Oglesby in Idaho.  The best part was playing ball with Bosco!  Here are the pictures:
