It's hard to believe that you are 4 today! It's been an interesting time, full of fun, learning and even some frustration. You are a very sweet boy, you mind us most of the time, but you have a stubborn streak and can throw a fit with the best of them.
This year we moved to Oregon, and you finally got to know your Grammie and Grandaddy. We spent a lot of time in Hood River staying in Grammie's RV, then we went to stay with Snowanna and DJ for awhile. You loved and hated that. You loved having DJ to play with, but hated fighting with him. We thought we had our own place, with David, but that didn't work out. We went to stay with Carol for a couple of weeks, until we found our apartment.
You have grown a lot this year, and learned a lot as well. Your memory is very good, you seem to be a visual learner. You remember details about things you have seen. Some things you have seen only once you will remember weeks later when you see them again. You are starting to talk with us more and more. Conversations are starting to happen more and more often.
It's been wonderful being your Mom. I love to cuddle with you, and build with your blocks. Watching Thomas, or going for walks are a couple of things we like to do.
This coming year things will change a bit. You will be going to pre-school soon, and hopefully I'll find a job I'll be good at and you will be going to daycare. You liked that earlier this year, I hope you will like it as much when you go this time. I'll miss our days together, but I think we both need some time on our own.
I love you very much!
