I just saw that I had this saved as a draft. I wrote it a week or so ago ....
Elijah can put his shoes on all by himself.
I know. He's 3 1/2. He probably should already be doing that by now. Madelyn was probably doing this at 2, but he's my boy. My baby. And now he's putting his shoes on by himself.
Today he was eating waffles and when I asked him if they were yummy he said, "Yes. I do like them. And you, in fact, are my mommy."
