I give him a TEN!
Don and I have had some house guests the past few days. My cousin Jenn and her daughter Grace have been camping out in our guest room and the boys are loving having a cousin their age around! If Grace is not within eye site, they will stop what they are doing and ask us where "Grazy" is. The first time I heard them ask, it sounded like "you crazy?" instead of "Where Grazy?"
Today Jenn was on the couch occupying all four kids. I grabbed the camera to make sure I got a picture. After I took the picture, I went over to investigate what they were up to.
I couldn't believe what Wyatt was doing.
This past month Wyatt has gone through many changes. First and foremost, he has gained 5 pounds! Since his tonsils came out, he is an eating machine! It is so good to see some skin on his body! Second, he has gone from having the smallest vocabulary to keeping up and possibly surpassing his brothers in talking. And last, he has taken a big interest in drawing. He has always loved to color, but drawing has his attention now. His monster the other day was the start of it. Today, Wyatt took it to a new level in freehand drawing the number 10!
It is unbelievable how much his development has come in leaps and bounds since his tonsils came out (6 weeks). In speech, language, and now writing! I can't help but wonder if all this food he is eating is helping his brain absorb and process information better. Whatever the reason, it is amazing to see him come so far, so fast!
