He is such a sweet boy....so lovable.....still blowing kisses to every stranger, friend and family member. Still offering a kiss if he hears you say the word "ow," regardless of whether or not he's caused the pain. He's also stubborn and persistent....determined to be independent and keep up with the big guys!
He loves to have fun and is willing to try most things! He was climbing these rocks all on his own as we took these photos.....such determination no matter how hard he has to work at it.
He notices the little things....the details.....he watches with focused attention and we often find him doing things and wondering how on earth he knew to do them so perfectly. He find joy in the small things.... picking the sole dandelion, smelling it....sharing it.... He stopped to watch an ant hole on our walk yesterday...stopped to pick up sticks...stopped to marvel at the pine cones starting to fall. My initial reaction is to hurry him along...to keep moving....and then I remember to slow...to fully enter each moment, and I'm so thankful for the way he reminds me.....
He understands everything. It may seem otherwise because he has such a limited vocabulary. Don't be fooled.
He's pretty easy going most of the time.....put his hands on a tree limb, he'll hang there.
Put him in a hole in a tree....he'll explore for hours if you let him.....
Sit him on a step.....boy the leaves and dirt are so much fun!
I can't imagine my life without this precious one.....he is such a blessing in so many ways!
Happy 3rd Birthday Levi Cruse!
