Brayden is very good with numbers. He loves to count things and ask how many of something there is. He is also getting good at looking at groups of objects and just telling you how many there are without counting them. He is also getting good at combing things to get a total. If you have two piles of an object he can tell you how many you have total, or he will use his fingers to count. I guess that is one of the perks of having a math teacher for a mother, I am already making him learn how to add.
With letters, Brayden can recognize most of the upper case letters. He knows how to spell his name and he can write it. He can write most of the uppercase letters as well, but sometimes he needs to look at one to remember how to draw it. Below is him writing his name in chalk. The B is hidden a little in the shade, but then it goes, R A D Y (he forgot the E so that is why it is below the rest) n.
His favorite things right now are playing outside and trucks. He loves to do anything outside, but he really likes to play in the sand box with his trucks. He is always making a road or a building or tearing something down "demo-lies-ing it" he says.

Bryaden is super into trucks these days. He knows all the different kinds of dump truck and will call them by the correct name. He will also spend hours watching "Mighty Machines" if I would let him. So what better of a cake to have for his birthday than a construction cake!
And as soon as the presents were opened he went for the cake! I think he really just wanted the trucks off the cake.
At his 4 year well check, Brayden was 42 inches tall and weighs 41 pounds. We also have a follow up appointment in a few weeks to find out about getting tubes put in his ears since he tends to get about 4 ear infections a year. Other than that he is doing well and growing up so fast!

Spending time up at the cabin is so much fun with Brayden becasue he gets to play outside all day long and run around to his hearts content. This weekend he went tubing for the first time this summer. He went on a tube with Rich. They also played in the lake and had a bonfire. I think the highlight was the bonfire. Brayden had been looking forward to it for the whole week!
