A portrait of my son, once a week, every week, in 2015.
Little Man : You grew up this week. I can’t explain it, but you feel more mature. They told us you would go through bursts in your learning followed by periods where it seemed not much was happening and I think I understand better now what they meant. You’ve been affectionate, giggly, curious and full of adventure. You’ve started really playing with blocks. You walk around with your dinosaurs, making them growl. You also started talking this week : Not with words, but with sign language. You make the signs for “eat”, “more” and “done” now, which makes meal times so much easier. All your moves seem so much more calculated, mindful even. It’s been a wonderful week with you my love, thank you so much for opening the doors to your world for me. ❤

Little Miss : It is scary how smart you are. You amaze me everyday with your endless curiosity and your powers of retention. You have mama’s photographic memory it seems. which I’m sure will get me in trouble one day. I love our “homeschooling” moments. I love being able to teach you about the world, about nature. I also love being able to go beyond school with you, feeding your brain the knowledge it desires without you being told to wait for others. I’ve been trying to find the balance between what you want to learn and what I think is appropriate for you to learn at this time. You haven’t been too upset with me when I ask you to wait so I guess we are doing well. Love of learning is a gift you will treasure forever my darling, I’m so happy you have been blessed with it. ❤
