It is the little things now. Last year he really feared people liking him. He felt very different from other kids. Now he has grown quite a bit and I think a lot of that is gym. He tells everyone he is a Samurai Ninja and teaches Ninja school to the other kids. He is really growing in his soccer as well. I am so proud that he is not getting written up anymore for talking or being distracted (that was almost daily last year). He has his friends like Ben Ben (pictured above) and friends like Samuel and Ezra at school. There is still drama occasionally between the boys. I laugh at that. I always thought girls were the ones who would have drama.
The biggest change is how much he is loving the journey of reading. I know he is going to be a writer like his mom one day. The above video was his first talk at church a couple of weeks ago. I didn't know he was supposed to give a talk so I wrote it down really quickly. He had to read it and he did it. Reading is now our daily tradition. He is reading the twins books to them. I couldn't be prouder.
It is hard having such a big boy but he still my little Harmon who sleeps with his dolly and gives me kisses. When Chris and I had separated this year it broke my heart so much because he understood that our family had changed. I feel guilty for that, but I am also proud of him because he stood up and just really helped me every day. Getting everyone ready, pouring milk for the twins cereal while I was in the shower, clicking the babies into the car seat, etc. He is one day going to be an amazing father and husband one day if he keeps this up. In the mean time I'm glad things are a little more stable and now he can go back to be more of a little boy.
This time taught us both how much love runs deep. Everyday I think God for my little man! And he is still just as cute. You can see from this video in the parking lot waiting for soccer practice. My apologies for my thumb. It is a new camera. Enjoy his cuteness singing and making his cute faces :)
