Patrick will be 2 1/2 in Sept, and I honestly cannot believe how fast these first couple of years have gone . I can still remember rocking him for hours at night, and going into his room every night just to check on him (I must admit, I still do this sometimes!). He has grown into such a sweet, funny, and smart little boy. He knows all his colors, several of his shapes, and is learning his numbers. He loves to dance, paint, read, and play basketball and soccer. Everyday is a new adventure with him. His latest obsession is CARS. He has about 40+ Hot wheels, not too mention fire trucks, cement trucks, etc. And he doesn't just roll them around or race them. He gets very creative in his play. He puts gas in the car or as he says "Gas first", then he takes them through the car wash, making sure to "clean the windshield", then he tells me the man is working on his cars. I ask him what the man is doing, and he will say "Oil Change", and "new wheels". It really cracks me up. Another thing he likes to do is crash the cars then he gets an ambulance, fire truck and police car to help the cars. He tells me the cars need a band aid, and then he will kiss them to make them better. I love to see his little brain working, and putting things together. He learns something new everyday. And I feel so blessed to be his mom.
Tonight Patrick said something that I personally thought was so funny. I will give a little background info first. Patrick really likes robots, and it is really hard to find robots. So, I youtubed some videos of the Jetsons and Rosie the robot. He only watched it a couple of times, and that was about a month ago. Well, tonight Lenny was trying to teach Patrick "Ring around the Rosie". So, Lenny says:" Ring around". Patrick repeats "Ring Around". Lenny then says: "The Rosie", and Patrick says: "The Robot?" LOL
Thank you all for reading this blog. I am so proud of my little boy, and I love him more and more everyday.

Taken just the other day
Wearing CARS shorts, and notice the car in his hand. He was at Botanical Gardens playing in the sprinklers, but nonetheless insisted on taking a car with him.
Our Big Boy!
