I just can't believe how fast my little boy is growing. There are sooo many things that I love about him that it would be impossible to put them all on my blog, but I am going to try and name a few. He is so smart, he learns a dozen new things everyday and remembers them all. I love when he looks at something and says, "look at all the colors!" The other day we were driving past a tractor and he said, "I can't pick up dat tractor, dats too big". I had never said that before to him, so it made me laugh. He has also expressed his desire to walk in the sky a few times, though now I think he knows it is not going to happen. He is so loving. I love when he is watching a video and he asks me to come sit with him and he snuggles on my lap or we just lay on the couch together. Sometimes he still requests me to hold him by saying, "ho-chee", and even though that does not oten seem appealing to me, it still melts my heart when he says it.
He has started to sing more and can say so many of the words. I try to get him to sing all the time. Sometimes he is on key and other times he's not, and I love it both ways. He can sing pretty much all the words to I Am A Child of God (or gone, as he would say). I saw on the program in Stake Conference that we would be singing that and I told William. When it was time he sang all the words he could and when it was over he kept asking to sing it again. I don't think there is anything sweeter than hearing him sing church songs and listening to him pray. Both get me pretty choked up inside.
He loves Thomas the train and any train for that matter. He is starting to use his imagination and I love that. He will ask to go outside and take his Thomas and another toy like his airplane and roll them around in the grass. I hear him say things like, "want to go park?, Okay, let's go." Or somethimes he gets stern and says, "I said right now!" I have no idea where he learned that. I just can't believe how fast the time flies and how rewarding it has been to be a part of his life. No one could have prepared me for this.
