Little Big Man

Jude, I love that you are a big enough boy to:
  • Help with the vacuuming.
  • Help your little brothers with their chores and coats
  • Help Daddy at work once in a while
  • Pull your brothers on the sled
  • Watch Lord of the Rings with us
  • Learn to play Settlers of Catan with us
  • Start the van (Command start!)
  • Read The Fantastic Mr. Fox, James and the Giant Peach, and Nicholas Nosh at Sea all by yourself, to yourself.
But I also love that you are still a little enough boy to:
  • Want to cuddle up next to Mommy on the couch at night while we read together.
  • Want to exchange "what I'm thankful for today"s every night before bed.
  • Want to give me a hug and a kiss before you go to sleep.
Sometimes you drive me crazy, but mostly, I love the stage you are in.

And more than that, I just love you.
