A little about you today, Liam, as you are on 8/10/12.
We are fish-sitting for our neighbors. You sat today staring at their fish for a good 20 minutes. I asked you what you were thinking and you told me, “Oh, I was just thinking how great it must be to be a fish in the sea and be able to go anywhere you want. I was also thinking about what a fish brain thinks about.” “What do you think they think about,” I asked. “Probably not a whole lot,” you answered and then left me alone with the fish.
I never have to discipline you. You put yourself in a time out at least five times in day. You are a complex little man. You have the best facial expressions. You wear your underwear backwards because “it’s more comfortable that way.”
You will only eat chicken, a bagel and cream cheese, pancakes, toast, clementine oranges and pizza. You are terrified of spiders, the dark, heights and being in a bathroom alone.
You are crazy affectionate, but have not let anyone (and I mean anyone) kiss you since you were 1 1/2 years old. You are way beyond your years and feel things deeply. Your favorite color is green. You adore animals; especially our dog. You love to swim and read books before bedtime. You really love to somehow work the word poop into sentences and songs that probably shouldn’t have it in there.
Your voice is soft spoken and is just so sweet. You love to laugh and love it even more to make others laugh. You are always thirsty. You are a natural video gamer and could play all day if it was up to you.
You still love to hold my hand.
Just so you know…I still love to hold yours, too.
