I Love This Kid

I always imagined that of all of us, W would do the best at transitioning to life in Turkey. After all, he is a toddler. He doesn't need much to be happy. His toys, a playground, mom and dad, and Mickey Mouse about round out his list. So, he is doing great. I learn so much from him-and on days when it is hard to be so far away, I look and him and see his happiness in the simple things and it always brings a smile to my face.

His big things lately:

~"Tower Blocks" (as he calls them). He loves to stack anything and everything.

~Tranportation. He is thrilled to hear "big planes" as they take off and land on base. We also point out "choo-choo's" and "big cars".

~Flags. This obsession has been going on for awhile and shows no sign of going away. What a little patriot we have!

~Rules. "No throw" and "no hit" are spoken often. He also knows "I sorry" and "hugs" when time-out ends.

~Counting and Letters-he is noticing numbers and letters everywhere. All letters are "O" or "S" but he can count to 6 pretty consistently.

So that is our 2 year old in a nutshell. What a funny, sweet boy we have been blessed with.
