We have this photo of Dallin when he was a little boy. Apparently one day his Mum found him sitting there under the carport, he had found the chair, dragged it there and was watching the digger and truck for ages. I’ve always thought it was a pretty cute little story and photo!
Well yesterday we came home today and there was a digger digging up the footpath just down the street. We were heading inside but of course Joshy had already seen it, and when I tried to bring him inside he insisted ‘digga digga digga’… when I said no and brought him inside (because it was cold and I was tired!) he grabbed my hand and insisted ‘look look look’… So he took me outside, led me through the gate and down the footpath. We stood there for a minute, when it became painfully clear Joshy was in for the long haul!
We only stayed out there for a couple of minutes but I’m sure if I had let him he would have stayed there the rest of the day! So needless to say I think Joshy is most certainly entering the ‘little boy’ stage of life…and maybe, just maybe, becoming more and more like his Dad everyday….. and I love it! I love that Josh can be so determined and know exactly what he wants to do. (even if it’s not what I was planning on!)
I love that he can be so full of life and getting into everything and yet at the end of the day he will lay next to me while we’re reading scriptures and stories, gently giving me kisses on my cheek.
The 2 most important men in my life are my husband and my little boy, and one of my greatest joys is seeing them play together, and watching their relationship grow. Life is wonderful with my family!
