It's hard to believe that three years ago yesterday I pushed out this little miracle that we have seen grow for the past few years. I know everyone says that the years fly by with children, but I have noticed a significant increase in the speed of time since he came into our lives.
He is so much fun to be around, and he brings the most fantastic little light into any situation that he is in. It is hard not to laugh at the things that he does, and very difficult to stay angry with him. He makes you feel better if you are sad or upset, and loves telling little stories about his day or things that he really enjoys -- it's all about dinosaurs and construction right now.
I see relationships with other children growing, and I enjoy the fact that he has developed a deep love of painting -- he could paint for hours if we would let him. Anytime he hears music he must dance, sing along, or grab instruments to add a little more to the song. He loves playing catch with anyone that will toss a ball around with him, and his dad is so proud that he's got a really great spiral when throwing a football.
I know I say this every year, but I really do enjoy watching him grow -- both physically and as a person -- and I can't wait to see what changes this year will bring.
