Thanks for playing along. He is so cute! The Karen answer cracked me up. :) I'm still chuckling. :)

Kelly said...

Maybe we should just call him Cookie Monster?

Lance said...

He may have gotten the age "four" from me. When we were at the toy store, the game I bought him was for ages 4+. I told him since he was "almost" four, and he was such a big boy, that he could have it!

Danielle said...

LOL! Love me some cookies too! :)

Denise said...

LOVE that he wants to be 5 when he grows up!! TOOOO CUTE!

When any one asks my 2 year old how old he is, he says "3". When we say "really? 3?", he says "no, 4" No way can he be 2. Anyhow...

connie said...

Too cute!

Heather said...

OMG too cute!!! I agree with Kelly, you should call him cookie monster!! :)

Reyna said...

OK the "Karen" thing is funny. Maybe he is sneaking out to visit some gal named Karen while heading to the "Cookie Store"...and the "I wanna be 5 when I grow-up" - priceless. Heck don't we all!!!

OK. I will work on Joe. It may be a day or two.

Great MeMe.
