Along with my baby belly, there is also a toddler around here who keeps growing and changing!
Besides his soon to be official "big brother" status, here are a couple of other things that have been happening with our big boy:
He is now in his big boy bed!
He got his first big boy bike!
He has developed quite a taste for the classics, especially Richard Scarry!
He has definitely entered the infamous "why?" stage! I
can see how it gets old, but it isn't like he is saying it as back talk,
he is asking legitimate questions. Why did you put that there? Why
did that person do that? etc. etc. etc. Oh, and also "what does it
mean?" He has asked me a couple times in the past few days, "What does God mean?" You know, simple
little questions like that. :) Before he picked those questions up he
would bring me something or hear about something and say, "teach me
about that, Mama." He has always been very inquisitive and aware of
what is going on around
him, even as an infant. I'll take it. :) He also wants to know what
everybody's name is, and if I say that I don't know he asks, "do they
have a name tag?" Inquisitive and logical. And whenever he sees or we
talk about an animal he asks, "what is its favorite food to eat?" Not
quite sure where he picked up that one. I know some people think I am
crazy, but I honestly enjoy conversing with my two year old!
The other day he told me what he wants to do when he grows up: "be a righteous man" (I guess he has been listening all those times I pray Genesis 6:9 over him!) and "drive a big up-truck [dump truck]." :) And then he said once he knows how to drive it he will "take Daddy's up-truck for a nice drive in the country."
I just love this big boy.
