IT'S A SNAP!


THESE ADORABLE LITTLE FINGERS ARE A SNAPPIN! ANDREW IS SO PROUD OF HIS NEW SKILL. NO MATTER WHERE HE IS OR WHAT HE IS DOING, YOU CAN HEAR ANDREW SNAPPING HIS FINGERS. IT IS SUCH A SWEET LITTLE SOUND.
THIS AGE IS SO FUN WITH ALL OF THE NEW SKILLS THEY MASTER. THIS IS ONE OF MANY THAT HE HAS GOTTEN UNDER HIS BELT LATELY. HE GETS HIMSELF DRESSED IN THE MORNING AND AT NIGHT AFTER HIS BATH. HE BRUSHES HIS OWN HAIR AN CAN ALMOST TAKE HIS SHOWER OR BATH BY HIMSELF! HE JUST NEEDS ME TO TURN THE WATER ON AND WASH HIS HAIR. HE BRUSHES HIS OWN TEETH IN THE MORNING BUT MOM STILL HELPS AT NIGHT. NOW FOR THE KICKER...HE IS READING VERY INDEPENDENTLY! HE IS READING HIS LITTLE PHONICS READERS TO ME SO CLEARLY IT IS CRAZY! HE LOVES TO BE INDEPENDENT AND MOMMY IS TRYING TO LET HIM BE THE BIG BOY HE WANTS TO BE. AS BITTERSWEET AS IT CAN BE, I LOVE WATCHING BOTH OF OUR BOYS BE CONFIDENT AND PROUD OF THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENTS BECAUSE I KNOW IN MY HEART THEY WILL ALWAYS BE MY BABIES.
