It's been weighing on me that I never wrote anything special for Reagan's 4th year of life. I jotted down a few things that Zach and I obsessively adore about him.
I love Reagan. Like where-in-the-world-would-we-be-right-now-without-him kind of love. I'm sure I'll feel the same way whenever we have another baby but right now, that's just hard to fathom. Zach and I talk about it all the time, but he has been the biggest blessing we've ever received and we feel really lucky/humbled that we've been entrusted to raise him. Us really? He's been our test child and although it's been hard it's been way more fun this way!
A few things I want to remember about Reagan from right now:
He is super observant.
He has an amazing memory (he gets this from Zach.)
He has great spatial resolution, he can really see something out of nothing. Ex: V's upside down A's, H's are sideways I's, hanger as antlers....
He is very gassy and he totally owns this.
(on our walk today to feed the Geese)
Needs his pillow to be cold, has me flip it for him all the time.
Can be very bashful! When his class sang Happy Birthday to him, he refused to stand up, make eye contact with anyone or even break a smile.
Wants a brother or sister really bad and is always picking out things for his nonexistent future "baby."
Gives great compliments.
If you have boobs he'll probably try to poke them. They must be foreign to him or something because I'm no help.
Can navigate through my iphone at the same level as me.
Asks really great/challenging questions about Jesus. Also makes really awesome comments about him like; "Jesus put a seed in my poop to make it grow big." Ahhhhh, boy to the core.
