Belated Birthday Boy

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

Stinky is four. Yep, the big 4 fingers.

In the past few weeks he has grown up so much. He is taller- but he also is acting older. I remember when Princess went through the same thing- when she went to bed and woke up more mature.

These developmental leaps do come at a cost. Whenever my kids are approaching a developmental milestone they seem to get stressed and act on the stress- Stinky displays his by whining and issues with his sister.

Anyhow. Today three days after his birthday he did something that he all of a sudden decided to do. He wanted to go down the water-slides at the pool. He did it. This is a huge leap for him. Last year water-slides were super scary even when he went down with a grown-up. Today though, he conquered them- several times.

He also discovered he prefers to swim with goggles. He can put his head under-water and swim a bit. My super sweet boy is growing up before my eyes.
