5th Birthday Interview: Elijah James

Elijah is MORE than ready to share his birthday interview with you! When I asked him if he wanted to answer some questions for me, he pulled up his chair, popped right down, and answered the questions as if he was interviewing for his dream job (see the last question on the list for what that is!)

 Elijah James

Elijah has one of the sweetest little spirits I've come across. He can be all rough and tumble with his brother one moment, and just want to snuggle up with me the next. He is so sensitive to other's feelings and worries if someone seems distressed at all. I love the true caring that comes through despite his tendency to get a little loud and rough at times! Elijah is making wonderful progress in school. He sill has a few therapies he needs to help him catch up, but he is on course to reach that goal in the next couple of years. We are excited (and nervous!) to see where kindergarten takes our slightly hyperactive boy.

How old are you? "Four" (One more week until we reach five!)
What makes you happy? "Singing songs, watching movies, playing, and having a good day at school and church." (like I said, he took the questions really seriously this year!)
What is your favorite animal? "Dogs and cats and lions and giraffes, and rhinos, and zebras, and elephants" (This answer will totally make sense at the end of the interview. Lol!)
What is your favorite color? "Green"
What is your favorite thing to eat? "Pzanya, macaroni & cheese, and pasta" (pzanya = lasagna. One of his therapies at school is speech. :) )
What is your least favorite thing to eat? Chicken (so. not. true. This kid can put away chicken nuggets like no ones business)
What is your favorite thing to do? "Watch a show and sing"

What is your favorite TV show? "PBSkids.org......Between the Lions" (At first, all he gave me was the "pbskids.org" answer. Points to PBS for great marketing!)
What is your favorite movie? "Baby Einstein with the caterpillar and all of the animals!" (He hasn't seen this one in forever, but I guess the animals in it made an impression!)
What are you really good at? "Singing!"
What is your favorite song? "Yankee Doodle Went to Town and The Tubby Little Snowman at school!" (He LOVES to sing! All. the. time.)
What do you and your mom do together? "Work together on keeping the house clean." (Good to see he is picking up on picking up!)
What do you and your dad do together? "Watch shows and movies" (We have a rule at our house that superhero and Transformer cartoons on Netflix can only be watched with Daddy. Not because they aren't acceptable, but because Daddy wants to watch them as much as the kids do. Hehe! It gives the kids something to look forward to...especially when their name is Elijah and he can't get enough Spiderman!)
What is your favorite book? "The Yankee Doodle Went to Town book"

What is your favorite toy? "Jingle" (He has this little stuffed dog that goes everywhere with him, including bed. Jingle "barks" a LOT. It's really amazing how much noise one little boy can project onto everything around him.)
What do you want to be when you grow up? "A zookeeper!!!" (and it all makes sense now!)
