This photo is from when my oldest boy was 17 months old. He was born to communicate! Before he had any words he was making conversation as though he were an adult (it was really cute baby babble :) Now my little guy is 4 and he still has never met a stranger. As we walked through the store this morning every cashier smiled and waved to him- no wonder he thinks he's a rock star! As he hopped up into the barber chair last week he asked "So, have you worked here long?" He also says things that melt my heart: "Mom! I'm an Astronaut and I came back from outer space because I forgot to give you a hug and kiss."
Last week he asked:
"Why do you always wear that ring, mom?" Me: "Because I promised your Dad that I would always love him." "Well I want to wear a ring all the time too because I promise to always love you."
Ah, such things as these make me wish he could be 4 forever. But then again, I didn't want him to grow out of his baby babbling phase either because I had no idea how awesome my 4 yr old would be... I bet 5 is gonna be awesome too.
