My little man is growing up so quickly. He's my sweet little boy and I'm having so much fun being his mommy. Today is his birthday so I wanted to blog about what a wonderful kid I have. I can't believe what a difference just a year has made. He is becoming his own little person and can take care of so many things himself. I decided to make a short list of some of the things he can do now that he's a big boy of 3 years old. I'm sure I've forgotten a lot of things, but here goes. Picks out his clothes every day (with interesting results sometimes) Gets dressed w/out help, including shoes Goes potty by himself including flushing the toilet and washing his hands Brushes his teeth Can count to 40 (although he always misses 19) Sings his ABC's (he knows a few by sight) Knows the names of the days of the week Knows his full name and also the full name of everyone in the family Knows his phone number Has 10+ books memorized and can "read" them to you Has quite a few memory verses memorized including the text Helps me around the house (sweeping, cooking, laundry, setting the table, etc.) Can fold clothes and put away all by himself (found this out when he had emptied his entire dresser and I made him put it all back) He's a crazy, wonderful boy with a big heart and a wild imagination. Here are a few examples -Wants to have his own skate board, trick bike & half pipe here at home LOVES his little sister and is always looking out for her Tells long and detailed stories about his life (mostly involving his trips for skateboarding competitions) Has another brother and another two sisters (brown and pink Cuddles (also called Sissy)- his and Caitlin's bears-see previous blog and an owl named Angel) Gets concerned if he thinks I might be doing something dangerous and will pull me back from the street if a big truck is coming. Guess I might not see it. =) Sits on the table looking out the window every morning waiting for Daddy to come out of the garage so he can wave good bye. He has a special wave and then they sign I love you and blow kisses. SOOO cute! He sees his guardian angel and told me that he wears white jeans and white shoes. But mostly he has nakey feet. He's so precious and I thank God that for the past three years I have been working at my dream job. Learning to wink! Playing with the flashlight.
