Waterfalls and Rainbows and Other Wonders

My dear Kaiden, you are growing up so fast.  I think you are growing up faster than your father did.  I have neglecting writing down so many amazing things about you and I know I will forget them if I don't.  So here is my list of the wonders of you.

You are absolutely fascinated by this picture of the waterfall and rainbow and when you see sprinklers you call them waterfalls.  You were so delighted to see the fountain Tito gave me for Mother's Day on the patio.  Your very own waterfall!

You like watching a television show named Ruby and Max so you were very confused when both my sisters were in town and we kept calling them Ruby and Millie!

You love to be outside and are not happy about coming back in.  You like the slide and the swing at the playground.

You love to sing  Row Row Your Boat.  You really like music and singing.  When we finish a song at church you sadly say "no singing".

You line your toys up in a row.  I am afraid you might have inherited your Gram's and father's obsessive gene.  You notice when things have been moved (like when I put your house and motorcycle away when you are not here).  I love the way you walk around the house trying to find them "House were are you?

You like big trucks and tell me Papa drives a big truck.  And he does.

You love balls and know the difference between football, basketball and soccer balls. 

You like stories and I love to read them to you. 

Every week when I see you it amazes me how much you have changed, how many new words you are using, how many new things you have learned.  You are changing so much and I am so blessed to be able to see you so often and see the changes.

It is so much fun to watch them change. I am with the girls so much that I don't seem the drastic changes, but in just a day or two there seems to be a difference when they're 2 or 3. It is such fun to watch them grow up. Katie is fascinated with the fountain by the library - calls it a waterfall.

It is a wonder to watch them change and learn so much so fast at that age.

they do grow and change so fast.
It makes me sad to see pictures of my Granddaughters as babies...sad in a good way. I just want to hold them again. I am blessed with who they have become (o:

What a great post! He seems to be growing up so fast! And, if you forget like I do, it's a good thing you wrote down these milestones. Wonder why he is so captivated by waterfalls? And, as you know, I'm sure, music helps develop a growing brain. Children who love music and listen to it, do so much better in school~He's a doll.
