we joined a class and damn is it cute watching you run around and discover the place. you do "art" projects, sing songs, play with toys, do bubbles, have snack time. it's an hour, built for you! you love it. you go all around the room discovering things, but every so often come back to where i am with your arms stretched totally open for a hug. then, you run off again. god, i love you!
you say "dada" all the time now which, duh, melts his heart. and it's a good thing because you've become a bit of a mama's boy which can get the poor 'ol dad down a bit. you make all sorts of animal sounds too. you love books, cars, books about cars, and dancing. you love cheesy scrambled eggs, plain yogurt with blueberries, apples, pears, bananas, hummus, black beans, and veggies out of a stew or soup. oh, and the annie's bunnies they serve at snack time in class. you love putting shoes away in the bin (and sometimes taking them out of the bin), and generally making messes. i'm always surprised at how much you know and understand, even though your words are pretty limited. it's really so cool.
my favorite thing these days? probably when you're across the room, spot me, and just start heading towards me with your head tilted back, and arms stretched forward. it's for a hug and it pretty much kills me. sometimes i miss tiny you, but big you is so fun too.
you and me, parker. we're buds. love you forever.
