Klaus Daniel, Age 5

I can hardly believe it’s been 5 years since Klaus was born. He was our happy midsize baby: 7 lbs, 15 oz, born in Mount Vernon, Washington. Every year has a lot of growth, but he has leaned out so much this last year and lost the last of the toddler look. He has a real penchant for adventures (as long as there are snacks), loves Pooh Bear and Calvin and Hobbes, and riding his new birthday bike.

And now, for a peek inside the world of Klaus, I give you his birthday interview.
