Preston is 3...how did this happen?!
Preston turned 3 this past week and I can't believe how fast he is growing up, it seems like yesterday we brought him home from the hospital, watched him crawl, learn to walk, watch him run, learn his numbers, colors, and alphabet...where does the time go? Now I finally realize how short this time on earth really is, and I know that before long he will be grown! Preston has always been so tender, gentle, sweet, easy going, just a good boy. He is definitely more aware of those around him and how they feel. He loves other children and has always played so well with them. He is confident, has never had stanger anxiety, or been bothered being left with a babysitter or at nursery. He is much more reserved, cautious, and really observes things before he dives in. He reminds me of my brother David as little boy.Connors birthday is this next week, I know crazy, two boys, two years, and two weeks apart! Connor is walking and you can see the excitement in his eyes as he constantly learns something new. They are good friends and play so well together! Connor wants to be everywhere, doing everything Preston is and does. He thinks Preston is awesome, when Preston is napping watch out Connor does everything he can to wake him up...I usually end up in the backyard so Preston can have some peace and quiet! This past year has been a bit of a challenge for me adjusting to two children and one being a highly demanding child, but it has been a good one. Connor has A LOT of personality, he is very busy, is my dare devil by far, he is fearless. He has no boundaries, he wants to try everything, do everything, anything Preston can do, he thinks he can do, he dives in with no fear. Anyone, any size is his friend, and he tries to play with them all. He is much more intense, strong-willed, free-spirited, and playful. He has a great sense of humor for a 12 month old, and laughs all the time. I am always amazed at what he KNOWS is funny at his age. He is really good at mimicking sounds, clapping his hands for Preston, he loves playing with trucks and trains and making noises for them as he moves them around, "BRRRRRBRRRR". Connor loves the ATV, and DIRT BIKES!!! Preston would get so scared by loud noises, like tractors, bobcats, dirt bikes, not Connor, the louder the bigger his smile and squeals! I feel so blessed to have these two sweet children, they bring so much joy to my life everyday! It's funny how you forget what life was like before them.
