I really do love this age. Today I asked the boys a series of questions that I save in the scrapbooks....things like....favorite color? what do you want to be when you grow up?
Q's answers haven't changed that much in the year and a half since I last asked.
His favorite person --Mama
Who does he like to play with -- Mama and KC
What makes him happy? when I see Mama the most
Often when I point out something gorgeous like a sunset or flowers in full bloom. He'll say "but Mama, it's still not as pretty as you. You are the beautifulest."
What a change from the day when he said, "mama, do you know what is special about you?...." A big fat zero
