It's incredible to me how quickly children learn and how much they actually absorb at such an early age! Alex just turned two and his vocabulary blows me away. Dustin and I both get such a kick out of the fact that we are actually carrying on conversations with Alex, even if it may not be all that intellectual, it's pretty smart for a kid to really understand what you're saying and knows how to respond.
An example of a conversation I have with him:
Me - "So, Alex what do you want to do today?"
Alex - "Mimi's house."
Me - "Mimi's not home today."
Alex - "Yeah. Toppy?"
Me - "Toppy's not home either."
Alex - "Umm, Toys R Us"
Me - "Oh, okay."
Alex - "O tay. Choo Choo shoes, O tay? Bye, Bye, O tay?"
Oh, it's so much fun! I knew that being a mommy was going to be fun, but I never imagined that I would find such joy in the little conversations that I have with my two year old! Every day Dustin and I get up and really look forward to whatever the day brings, because just knowing that we have each other and two boys to share the day with is truly a blessing!
This post just wouldn't be complete without a picture, so here's Alex giving Elmo kisses!
