- A 'peanut butter and jam-wich'
-Singing at the top of his lungs while walking around town
-Riding his scooter with one of his legs frozen in the air
-Riding his scooter side-ways and says, 'I'm surfing!'
- Me: "What did you do in nursery today Evan?" E: ..."I cut Janie's hair, and Caleb cut Harrison's hair and I push Janie." Me: "Oh :( Evan, you know we don't push. We keep our hands to ourselves, you know better." (I addressed the hair part after, no worries, it was just pretend.) E: "We no push in nursery, I give hugs only."
Now whenever I have to remind E to be nice and soft, he says, "Hugs only" and gives me or his friend a hug.
-While getting him ready to take a bath Evan points to his tummy and says, "Ooh! It's my belly. Evan has a little belly. Mommy has a BIG BIG belly." :)
-He makes the duckies in the tub kiss each other and says, "It's mommy and daddy!"
-He pretends anything round and hollow are tunnels; pasta, shirt sleeves, boxes (okay, those are square), tables etc.
-He pumps his fist and says, "Hip Hip Horray!" for things like....taking bites of his food.
-While coloring, he looks up at me and says, 'Mommy I wuv you."
-He sings, 'I'm trying to be like....Jesus' around the house
-He LOVES playing with friends and is often sad when play dates end
-The first thing he said as he walked out of his room today after waking from his nap was (in all seriousness), 'Come on Mommy, let's go....let's go to the store to buy a balloon.'
-He pretends to go to work in a big building, on a train, on an airplane, and to the temple. Today he pretended he and his 'girl' friend were going to the temple to get married. :) So funny and cute.
I am so grateful to be a mother to such a pure and sweet little boy. I can honestly say he has made me a better person and that he continues to make me want to be a better person. Thank you Evan. I love you more than you will ever know.
