He has developed such a personality and many likes and dislikes. In two years he went from nursing and eating 1oz every few hours and using only cries to communicate to a running, talking, thinking, observant little dude.
Some of his favorite things are:
Running - or what he calls "Runn-an!" he absolutely LOVES to run and run and run. Which is probably why he is such a good runner taking long strides with each step instead of the usual bounce of a two year old. When we go to the park and there is a baseball diamond there to, he will choose to run around the printer of the outfield and run from base to base and finally stopping in the dugout to check things out. If he does not play baseball we would be surprised. Not to mention he can throw a ball overhand pretty good. Right handed he is, but hey he is young, why not practice with his left hand to?
Doesn't he just look like a little baseball star?
Trucks/Buses - If he is not running then he is pushing a toy truck or his toy bus "Yellow Bussie!" We watch the school bus pass twice a day, the mail truck deliver mail everyday, the package truck drive by every day and on Thursdays we watch the recycle and trash truck to. He watched in amazement of the trash truck when it scoops up the trash bin and always sequels "WHOA!"
Books- Especially books about trucks, trains, buses, Elmo, or anything that is "touch and feel" or with flaps. We have a huge collection of children books (and adult books to). From gifts, goodwill, and library book sales we have a lot of choices and a lot of favorites at our house. He loves books so much I cant take him to the library. Why you ask? Because his sweet little two year old self gets so overwhelmed by all of the wonderful books and choices around him and he usually freaks out :P. No matter where we go I always have 3 books with me just in case we need to keep little dude busy for a while.
We are so blessed to be this little guys Mom and Dad. He will never really understand just how much we love him, which is bigger and deeper than we could have ever imagined.
To think that in a few short 4 months we will have a brother or sister for Parson is beyond exciting. Another little Person to train and try and grow into a responsible, respectful, and aware child and adult.
Parenthood is one wild and rewarding ride. We cant wait to see what the Lord has in plan for our favorite little man.
