    That is indeed a lovely story, BKD! You can be very proud of your sweet boy.

    Thump, thump! Thump, thump!

    Just think what your son did for the 2 year old. My 2 yr old was in the same boat this weekend at the community playground and the older kids were playing a made up game tying hide and seek and color coding together. The older kids decided to include her in the game and the excitement of it all when we left made my heart soar. She was so excited and said "Mommy, the older kids played with ME." "They told me when to slide and not slide." ... on and on but with such a big smile on her face. I could have hugged each and everyone of those kids.

    Oh, I really needed to see that side of him after the horror of Christmas. It was our first encounter with fully blown present greed, and I will spend the year making a plan to ensure it doesn't happen again. Much prefer the gentle, caring part of his nature.

    I wanted to share something about DD18 month since I don't typically say much about her. quite honestly I wasn't sure if she was behind in her expressive language skills even though I knew her receptive language skills were great. And then in the last 2 weeks there has been an explosion. She talks a LOT, she counts to 10, she sings her ABC's and knows what comes next if you stop. She knows her shapes, and some colors. She is getting really good at shapes puzzles and sorters. It's really bizarre how it all started happening. But it's also exciting to watch her express herself more.....even though she does give dirty looks sometimes and started saying "No" as she looks at us with disgust.

    My DW hit her head very hard in the bathroom this weekend and was crying on the floor.

    Mr W went over to her and layed his head on hers and cooed to her.

    Austin, poor DW! I'll bet that will be smarting for days to come. Mr. W comforting her does make a nice picture...

    This Christmas DD4 sang hallelujah, from Shrek while her uncle played it on the piano. It was really touching and meant a lot to her to share her talent and feel understood. I am really appreciating the gifts our family members have and it is so sweet for her to share this kind of connection with her extended family.

    On the lighter side have you heard all the words to this song. She knows all the words I mean all of them and I am getting a lot of questions I am not sure I want to answer. We didn't intentionally teach her it she just memorizes things and I did not realize the content until I heard her singing it and thought what did you just say!
