Random acts of cuteness...(stole that line from my sister in law)

Yesterday I'm reading to Easton and he decides he wants me to hold him with his head on my shoulder. This is his favorite way to be held when he gets tired, but it is not so easy to do with my ever growing middle. So I held him for awhile then told him I couldn't do it for very long because it hurt my stomach. I told him it hurts because my belly is getting bigger and bigger. So he crawls off my lap, pats his stomach and says "Mama Eastons belly hurts, it's bigger. Baby's comin soon." I was laughing so hard...that kid is too funny.

My Son

My son is getting to be so funny now that he's almost two. I understand why parents of toddlers are never bored. They come up with the craziest things to say and do. Just this morning when daddy was leaving for work he told him "Bye bye daddy!" Dad asked him "Where am I going?" Instead of saying work like he usually does, he said "Daddy's going crazy!" and then laughed and laughed at himself. I laughed at that one too, he's right you know :)

I just put him down for a nap and as I was rocking him before I laid him down I was thinking about how much fun he is and how much I love this time I have with him at this age. He's growing up so fast. It amazes me how much kids learn in such a short peroid of time. He went from being completely dependent on mom and dad to sleeping in his own room, feeding himself, walking, talking, helping to dress himself, making jokes, making friends, singing songs, learning the alphabet, counting to ten, and so many other things all in under 2 years. I see him growing and maturing each day. Although I don't want him to grow up too fast I'm so excited about the things I see him doing. I feel so blessed every day even when he tries my patience. God gave me an amazing gift when He brought this little boy into our lives. I only hope that I'm able to be the mom he needs me to be because he deserves the best.
