My cousin Jessica had her baby girl this morning and we got to go visit them both. It was the first time Preston interacted with such a little baby. He wasn't very interested and just liked playing around in the room, but he did want me to lift him up to look at her in the bassinet and then before we left he sat in my lap and we held her. He was so cute patting her head and trying to pet her face. He looked so big next to her!
Congratulations Jessica and Sergio! She is perfect!

Preston is such a sweet boy and is amazing me daily with the things he says. We have begun having Preston repeat prayers and I guess we always say the same line "Thank you for this day". Last week I prompted him "thank you..." and he said "thank you for this day." It was so cute and I am so happy that he is learning about prayer and giving thanks!
Since he was a newborn one of the songs we sing is "I am a Child of God". Lately we've been singing only that. Tonight I was trying to calm him down and started singing something else and he said, "No! Child of God." Aaron and I were both shocked because he has never named it before and I never really knew how much he liked that song. Then, while I was singing he kind of sang along. It melted our hearts.
I absolutely love this stage when every day he surprises me with something new. He is getting better at listening to mama and is so independent. He will often walk with me rather than me putting him in a cart or carrying him. He loves giving smooches and will sometimes walk up to me and say "I want a smooch" and then give me a kiss and walk away. We love the memories we are making with him and couldn't imagine life any other way. He is such a joy!
