WOW, how time flies. he was just a baby yesterday it seems like. I have been blessed with a wonderful son. man, I love him more then anything in this entire world. he has been such an easy child to deal with. never has been difficult at all, growing up or as a baby. took him on a trip to visit a bud in vermont at 2 mo. old. thought it was going to be a nightmare trip with a screaming baby. we had people left and right complimenting us on what a calm sweet baby we had. he is advanced as far as his learning ability. he gets things easy it seems. all his teachers say he is doing great and say he is so polite. he allways says "may I please" and "thank you". sure he can be a booger like any other kid when he is tired or hungry, but from what I see my friends deal with as far as spazzy, none manner having kids who back talk and demand what they want. and at the same age or older there vocabulary or knoledge in general is behind my sons level for sure. my son is a good kid cause we have taught him to be so. I am very proud of him. I miss his littleness from the earlier ages. he's almost 47 inches tall! I still carry him when he wants me too as long as he wants me too. man its brutal sometimes after 30/40 minutes, my arms are shot. but he usually will get down before then. but I still want to carry him when we go places. I like to be able to kiss his little cheek and be near him and just talk to him. he sits on my shoulders all the time too which he loves. he loves to just be with me, playing or wrestling or cuddling. he loves to be in my garage getting into stuff, which drives me crazy but I keep an eye on him so he dont get hurt. I want to teach him all the welding and machining and mechanic skills I have and I want him to learn all that I never did. I look forward to his future but man I allready miss the past. I love to see him smile and happy. hearing him laugh when mom is tickling him is such a feel good fealing, it makes me feel very happy. man, they grow up way too fast. sorry, Im kinda sappy right now, my little buddy just brings it out of me.
