I am Ian

Since today is Ian's birthday, I thought I'd do an I Am meme on him. I interviewed him for most of these answers, but at one point he got so silly that he kept answering "the trees" for everything so I had to answer a few for him.

Ian's answers first:

I am: a child of God.

I want: another birthday party.

I miss: the circus Grammy and Papa took me to.

I'm afraid of: bears.

I cry: when somebody hurts me.

I search for: my gardening shoes (his crocs, which he wears almost everywhere.)

I love: Mommy.

I am not: a husband.

I remember: Jesus.

I don't always: make bad choices.

I sing: Primary songs.

I like: to go on dates with Daddy. Bike riding to the park dates.

I don't like: when people eat everything. (Not sure if he means the eat all the food or if they just will eat anything you serve them???)

Now a few that I answered for him:

I always: try to make people laugh.

I dance: silly, because it makes people laugh.

I write: with either hand.

I lose: the itty bitty toys that I take to bed with me.

I wish: that we had a dog.

I can usually be found: at the train table or on the swing set.

I need: a book, a hug, and a kiss before bed.

I argue: when I don't get my way.

I wonder: when I'll be as big as my brothers. (Soon. Very soon.)

I am happy when: I'm doing math with Mommy.

I'm so glad that Ian is a part of our family. He keeps us laughing and playful. He is the best sleeper I've ever had. He tries hard to make good choices a lot of the time. I'm proud of him.

So sweet! You are so good at keeping up with your posts. We had a first birthday at our house last week which I still have yet to up load to pictures from!

Happy Birthday Ian!

I love my Ian because he loves to sing songs with Grammy. It is the highlight of the Sabbath Day to put him to bed and sing about birds, trees, Heavenly Father, pigeons, cabooses, and Ragtime Cowboy Joe.

Happy Birthday Mr. Ian.

Love, Grammy

I am a couple of posts behind, but I loved The Big Top Circus Birthday Party. The invitations in popcorn boxes were so cute. I loved the face painting, and Ally's cake was amazing. It looked very professional.

Also, I enjoyed your post about your ancestors, and all you have written regarding Prop 8. It seems so strange that traditional marriage is something we actually have to vote for and defend.

That was so fun to read. Some of it was hilarious. Good to know he is not a husband yet. He is so cute and sweet and silly and fun. Every house needs an Ian.

Happy Birthday, Ian!
