Alan had been hoping for a baby brother "because I like to play with boys," he said.  These days Alan enjoys playing softball with his father, and Alan considers hitting his specialty.

In his second grade class, arithmetic is his favorite subject. "We're learning to regroup in addition," he said, referring to what used to be called "carrying."

Alan is good at socializing with senior family members, and he was a hit at his cousin Aaron's third birthday party.  Alan shared his Gameboy toy with his great grandfather David, who celebrated his 90th birthday on March 24. "I showed Grandpa Dave how it works," Alan said.
