Tracen's birthday was over a month ago, but I just keep feeling like I need to write down some things about this stage in his life. He just seems so grown up all the time. Luckily he still needs me to do a few things: Like dress him (however, we are working on this and he is [finally] getting good at finding his clothes to wear...)
Not always a good rule follower, he is a good rule enforcer, so I know that he does know what the rules are, and although he pretends not to hear me, as soon as anyone else breaks a rule - he lets me (or them) know.
He is really into pretend and we spent a morning at The Children's Museum in Denver when we were last there, and he loved it. He is also really into monsters, he is terrified of them, but talks about them all the time.
|At the Children's museum, they had this cool little garden area and farmers market.|
He loves to build things and thinks that his Daddy can build anything. He also recently learned that Luke buys pumpjacks for work, and likes to tell me about it a lot.
He sure loves Rai. Every time I bring Rai downstairs from his crhib, he always says " Mornin' Rai". He usually will help me out and grab me things if it is for Rai. Oh and for some reason he says "Yes Sir" to me. He also shares his best and favorite toys with him too.
He is still very much into anything with an engine, cars, planes, trucks, construction equipment etc.
We love reading books, and he just started to tell his own stories. "Once upon a time, there was a boy Tracen," He also sings a lot and makes up his own songs, with made up words. He loves Beauty and the Beast and belting out "Be Our Guest".
We love to go on walks and he points out every ant, beetle, flower, sound and likes to throw as many rocks as he can. At this point in his life, every kid he sees is a friend and he is always ready to play with them.
He always asks for toast for breakfast, and any other meal he asks for peanut butter (pb & j) sandwich.
I am sure there are so many other things I had every intention of writing down... but I can't seem to think of them. I sure love this little boy of mine and I am grateful for the chance I have to be his Mom - even if it does keep me constantly on my toes.
