Somehow, in the blink of an eye, I have a four year old.
I'm not sure when or how this happened? Isn't he suppose to still be snuggled up in my arms, so new, so squishy?
Now he's not so tiny anymore. He's a bright, active, loud, four year old paleontologist in training. He talks to us like he's an adult. He sings, he writes, he can even read a little bit. He's so grown up. I am just amazed by him, every single day.
