He loves to be like the big boys whenever we are around the big boys. We went to a friend's birthday party recently and he wanted to go down the water slide. By himself. The slide was huge and it was a big effort for a little guy.
First he had to climb up the slippery slope into the bouncy part.
Then he had to grab onto straps to pull himself up onto the ladder that led to the slide. I waited and waited to see that little wet head pop up.
He pulled himself up- so exciting!
Climbed onto the slide.
Ready, set . . .
I just love it! He's having so.much.fun. And that makes mama happy.
"Let's do it again!" He must have went down that slide 50 times.
And then there was cake. I like to see that parts of him are like parts of me. Even if they are the parts that like chocolate cake.
