Now He Is 8

April 20, 2019

It is unbelievable, isn't it? Time seems to move so slowly, but then all of a sudden you are celebrating your child's 8th birthday and wondering what happened to that little two year-old fella that you snuggled in your arms only yesterday.

Looking at last year's post, I see a lot of physical changes. I mean, he still doesn't have all of his front teeth, but even the shape of his face has changed, and the colour of his hair is much darker than it used to be (I'm having to get used to the idea that I won't have a little blondie like me anymore). 

I also notice a lot of mental and emotional changes. He's gone from ready easier books with short stories, to reading chapter books. He loves telling jokes, and has developed a really fun sense of humour. He's still working on being thoughtful and putting others first, developing skills beyond being kind to someone by helping them out one time and understanding what it means to be a good friend for a long time (without expecting something in return).

This year has had it's struggles, and there have been so many developments that are probably him getting into that phase of life where other things are more important than family and I'm gonna fight with you about everything, but, like always, I'm excited to see where we are headed and what kind of guidance (and frustration) will be in the future.
