Say Cheese


I'm not sure how you've gotten so big, or so talkative.  Whenever I dream of saying "I don't know" to one of your many questions you respond, "Well, let's talk about it."  You ride a bike, you are swimming on your own (with floatation assistance).  Your new favorite show is Super Why and you ask what every letter and number is you see.

You can be so stubborn, especially at bedtime, but most of the time you are please to be interacting and learning new things.  You are solidly one of the "big" kids at daycare now and your art and stories from the day are becoming more advanced and elaborate.

You embody the concept of paradox for me, of being both/and.  You are both sensitive and destructive.  Both obstinate and obedient.  Both fearless and afraid.  You flip on a dime, but your joy can fill a room.
