Our Little Sunshine

Seems we haven't seen as much of Rowan lately (because we've been busy) and can't believe how fast he's changing. He used to get upset if I tried to take his picture because he wanted to be the one holding the camera. The other day I asked if I could take his picture and he popped his head up high and smiled for me. Had to be quick though! :) He was also full of stories to tell, if only I could understand - he looked at me so seriously and just kept talking. When I asked him about it he smiled, nodded and said, "ahuh". His favorite words lately...button, book, door, kick (loves to kick a ball around), Joe & Bob (from Veggie Tales), Mom and Dad and many we're not sure about :)

After Stacey changed his diaper he quickly crawled away wanting to snuggle up in the guest bed. I asked if he wanted to have his nap at Grandma's and he said, "uhuh". Now if only mommy had brought along his little napping buddy!

Got to babysit Thursday evening while his mommy and daddy worked with the Youth. We had such a blast doing all the fun things he likes to do, and then more excitement when we had to pick up Uncle Dustin from work. He absolutely adores his uncles and aunties.
At bedtime he's got a little routine that, if you forget a step, he'll remind you - get into pj's, turn on his night light, his little fan and his music. Then we sit in the rocking chair for a story and a little singing. After that you pray with him and he gives a long hug before lying down to sleep. He must have felt I didn't pray enough or forgot someone/something because he lifted his hand for me to pray again. I melted!! Could he be any sweeter? I just wanted to pick him up and hold him....well, I got my chance! After a few minutes he called me back but I didn't know what I had forgotten. So, we re-did the routine and I laid him in his bed again and all was well. It was only after about 10 minutes of him being asleep that I realized what I had forgotten - his cup of milk!! I felt sooo bad, even moreso that he was gracious and let me off the hook
