Little Big Man

Sunday, January 03, 2010

Jude, I love that you are a big enough boy to:

  • Help with the vacuuming.
  • Help your little brothers with their chores and coats
  • Help Daddy at work once in a while
  • Pull your brothers on the sled
  • Watch Lord of the Rings with us
  • Learn to play Settlers of Catan with us
  • Start the van (Command start!)
  • Read The Fantastic Mr. Fox, James and the Giant Peach, and Nicholas Nosh at Sea all by yourself, to yourself.
But I also love that you are still a little enough boy to:
  • Want to cuddle up next to Mommy on the couch at night while we read together.
  • Want to exchange "what I'm thankful for today"s every night before bed.
  • Want to give me a hug and a kiss before you go to sleep.
Sometimes you drive me crazy, but mostly, I love the stage you are in.

And more than that, I just love you.

  1. So grown up! It really is a great stage when they've reached a bit of maturity. A little less labor intensive for parenting but more emotionally involved; more complex. Blessings no matter what the stage.

  2. I just love him too. I don't know how but as soon as I see his face, and his brothers' faces, I just light right up inside and a huge grin pastes itself to my face.

    I love you Jude. And I love Noah & Jabiin too!

    You three make my heart beam.

  3. .....sniff, sniff......I miss you buys!
    Summer can't come any too soon!!
