My goodness, you are turning into such a good little boy. There are so many things that you do in a day that cause this mama to just sigh in gratitude, and shake my head in wonder, and stifle a giggle in awe of your curiosity, tenderness, craziness.
You are definitely a two year old, and I love seeing the changes in you! You are still my baby--wanting to cuddle, loving to be carried, needing so much assistance in so many ways. But you are definitely my two year old baby--independent, sometimes defiant, emotional and so so so curious! I love it.
I love how everything has a place, and you are quite sure where everything goes. A few weeks ago, you adamantly lined up two drumsticks on two separate floor vents. Apparently, that's where they belonged. When I ask you to put things away, you know exactly where they go, and you put them there! Except for the plate that you insisted belonged in the garbage tonight, even though I kept pointing to the dishwasher. (We finally compromised on the sink.)
You close doors, turn off lights, put away toys (when asked, after completely dumping out everything as any good toddler would.) I love how you always put the bathroom stool away in the closet--I don't think I even taught you that. You just decided it one day!
You are going to be a great big brother--I see you feed your Spiderman man action figure, and know you'll take even better care of your sister. :)
You are going to be a great big brother! Tonight while I was praying
and singing a song to you, you snuggled down low on my lap, laid your
head on my 20 week pregnant belly, said something in gibberish and
patted my tummy. Then, with your cheek resting on your baby sister, and
your right arm circling my midsection, you kissed the baby and said,
Seriously, you are too cute.
Joshua, I love you!
