In the last few weeks . . .
:: He decided that dressing himself from head to toe is totally easy. Putting on his own shirt is now a piece of cake instead of a big wrestling match.
:: He has been eating a TON these days. Like if we’re having sandwiches for lunch he is eating three. THREE! Two bowls of oatmeal for breakfast, a second breakfast about an hour later . . . he must be turning into a hobbit.
:: Ender ventured into 100 piece puzzles. He received two for Christmas and it’s been fun to watch him work on it for awhile and then wander back several times through the day to continue his work.
:: He followed the directions on a new set of trio blocks to complete the project on his own for the first time. In the past he has asked for help around step 2 and this time he finished it completely on his own. When did that happen?
:: Ender has been helping Daddy around the house this month. He is rarely to be found without a measuring tape, a pencil and paper in his hands writing all kinds of numbers.
:: Since Ender first saw his bike on Christmas morning I don’t think he’s taken his helmet off except to sleep, and that’s only because we made him.
:: Ender, you are sweet and affectionate, caring for your family and taking good care of us. You make sure that we read every day, remind us to laugh, you make great jokes, and think through everything. Four-years-old looks good on you, Son. You are such a blessing to me and I love you more than I can put into words.
