These days life is filled with either very sweet moments with Toby or moments of wanting to pull my hair out. And the amazing thing is that no matter which moment we are in, I still am filled with undeniable love for him!
So let's focus on the sweet!
Sweet moment #1: (this is MY FAVORITE) At dinner time, as soon as we all sit down to eat Toby will hold out his hands for us to pray. He will hold our hands and sit quietly while we ask the Lord's blessing over our meal, our loved ones, and our lives. When we are finished he will say something along the lines of "Amen" (at least the inflections sound like "Amen",) and then we eat. It is one of the most special memories I have thus far in parenting. I wish we had a picture of it, but because we are all 3 required to participate that picture will be more difficult to capture (but I'll try.)
note: today when I found him reading I realized that before he made it to the bookshelf he pulled all his onsies out of the basket and had them thrown all over the room! (it's not all sweet)
Sweet moment #3: well, maybe not so sweet, but pretty funny. Toby has a new face...he started making it on Friday. It is like he is laughing really hard, but he makes no sound. It's really funny!
Just a sweet picture!
Sweet moment #4: We have a sign language video that Toby enjoys watching and to my surprise he is learning it! Here he is saying "book." You put your hands together, then open them like a book...and Toby's got it down!
