Dominic gets sweeter, smarter and more fun every day. He's dribbling a soccer ball like a pro after a handful of soccer classes. Solving puzzles is a breeze and his artful pictures grow more vibrant and specific each day. He's drawing monsters, people, dinosaurs and coloring like Matisse (o.k. and exaggeration – just a littleJ).
He's riding a bike with training wheels now -- a bit precarious in my mind as I watch him enjoy the scenery all around rather than look straight ahead to ensure safe navigation. He seems to travel in these miraculous S curves that nearly miss tumbling straight off the sidewalk time and time again. Somehow disaster seems to sashay out of the way when Dominic rides; he miraculously escapes perpetual near misses... So far, he's unscathed and absolutely adores the sensation of his little legs pumping away on the pedals. (Thank goodness he thinks it’s really cool to wear his helmet!)
I adore our time together. When the days get long, as they sometimes do, we simply pop in the hamster dance and pump up the volume for a spontaneous dance party. Dominic and I jump around as Ellie laughs, kicks and waves her hands.
Enough words for today…
