my heart is overflowing with pride today.
today was your "celebration day," which means the last day of your four-day-a-week for two weeks swim class. i got to go (without goo) and watch you "perform."
big h, how you've overcome so many things in your little life.
you were ten and a half months before you learned to crawl.
but you walked at eleven. show off.
you waited until you were a little over three-and-a-half until you were potty trained.
but you were potty trained in three days. show off.
you didn't speak until you were three.
but once you started, you have never, i repeat NEVER stopped.
i could listen to you all day long. wait...i DO listen to you all day long.
two years ago, you only sat on the steps of a swimming pool. last year, you swam with your instructor, with your head completely above water. oh, and you announced to the instructor EVERY DAY that you would NOT be going "deep under water, thankyouverymuch."
today, you did it. you went under water. "yots" of times. of course, there were plenty of kids who were like little fish, and the instructors couldn't keep their heads above water. but that's neither here nor there.
but today, you, big h, were brave. you set an example for me. "be strong and brave, because God is with me." and so you quote.
i love you with all of my being. thank you for creating for me one of my best days as a mother. i tip my hat to you, sir.
quick question...why are you making that weird face?
maggie mermaid. or you like to say, "you're not a mermaid. you don't have a tail." you've always been an outside-the-box thinker.
seriously. i could eat you with a spoon.
