A lot of the time I feel like I have to actively stop myself from worrying too much about Michael's development. All indications are that he's healthy and moving along just fine, though he is taking his sweet time with some of those milestones. Lately, as though he needed to reassure me, Michael seems to have ramped up to some new level of awareness of the world around him and his place in it.
For example - all of a sudden it is often important to him to do what Harper is doing. Therefore, if Harper colors...
He thinks he's such a big boy, watching the cars, holding his crayons... For a moment I have a vision of homework sessions and afternoon snacks shared around this same table.
Then Michael starts to eat his crayons, and they have to be confiscated.
With Matt and his parents busy all weekend, I'm packing up the kids and taking this show on the road. Tomorrow afternoon we're headed to visit Erin and Tracy and I can't wait to throw our six kiddos together and see what happens, it's been far too long since we've visited. Put away your crayons Ladies, here we come!
