Aaron Andrès Seals
At 5½ years, Aaron was becoming very grown up - at least he thought so. He was enrolled in kindergarten and doing well. He read at an advanced level for his age. He loved Scooby Doo, "Spirit" and "Schoolhouse Rock (Grammar)." He also loved to sing and dance. "What a ham!"
Aaron weighed over 40 pounds, but that still didn't help in finding pants that fit. SKINNY! And always hungry (hence the saltines, a favorite snack)!
Though busy with school, we had time to go on a train to a pumpkin patch, play in the fall leaves, go to the Children's Museum (where Missy saw Santa but Aaron ran right by him), and sled in the snow. Here are the pictures:
