Holding His Own

Every day, Henry is less a baby and more a little boy. His language skills are improving and he takes more notice of other kids. He is becoming able to interact and play little games, especially if the kids are slightly older (and bossier).

We went to two parties this weekend: the first a joint birthday party for three of his neighborhood friends, and the second the Baptism of Aly and Carter's new baby Amelia. It was such a trip to watch him run around and socialize, and not need us to direct him or intervene. He got right into the mix of things and wasn't shy or scared at all.

It is fun to see what kind of person he is becoming; he is so sweet and plays really well with other kids. He is great at sharing (I'm sure this will change soon) and taking turns. He doesn't hit or bite and is so good-natured. He is such a great kid and we are so proud of him!

P.S. He is a bit of a party animal. He was chugging juice, demanding cookies and ice cream, bopping to the music and running around. You would think he had been on the party scene for years! He also ate his lunch at the kiddie table which was so cute it almost brought me to tears.
