3 1/2 years old

Dear Boston,

It's been awhile since I last wrote you.  I've been inspired to write because you're changing so much lately.  You're in the middle of a mental growth spurt.  Everything is being absorbed at an accelerated rate and your desire to learn and know more is never satisfied.  It's a really fun time to be your Mom.  I'll make you a little list of Boston facts for 3 1/2 years old.

  • You don't always want to read scriptures, but the moment I sit down and start reading about someone getting killed, or someone building a boat, you're hooked.
  • I asked you today if you remember who was asked to build a boat in the Book of Mormon and you responded, "NeHi"! 
  • You love being a big brother and you're such a big helper.  In the mornings we ask you to gently "dump" Isaac out of his pack n play when he's calling for us.  Then you lead Isaac back to our room
  • Reading is something you're passionate about right now.  You want to follow along with your fingers, you have lots of questions and you like to point out all the letters you know.  
  • We just finished our first chapter book, Mary Poppins and you LOVED it.  Due to Nana's recommendation I think we'll try Treasure Island next.
  • When reading out chapter book you would say, "Can I see a picture?  Oh yeah!  I have to imagine it with my mind!"  
  • You love finding letters on all kinds of signs when we're driving. 
  • Counting is your favorite these days and everything must be counted.  You're also learning how to add. 
  • You love playing football and Minion Rush on Daddy's phone.
  • Life has gotten so much easier for you and I at 3.  You're a much better listener and do a lot less hitting!  Although we still need to work on being a better protector of brother.
  • At the Trampoline house Mommy was playing with Uncle Brett and he tried to throw me in the foam pit, but you didn't know we were playing and stood between us, hitting Uncle Brett shouting "Stop it!!"  I felt bad that you didn't know we were playing, but it warmed my heart that you are Mommy's protector.  
  • One time we were talking about who the moon belonged to and you answered, "The Sky".  Then I asked, "Who made the sky" and you answered, "Umm,  Daddy or Tio Brett".  
  • You love Bonkie and enjoy playing catch with her. 
  • You're growing so fast and getting taller by the minute.  You're feet went from 7's to 11's in months! 
  • Often times, for no reason at all, you will just say,  "I love you Mommy".  You do the same thing with Daddy and it warms our hearts. 
I could go on and on Boss, but I've got to get ready so that we can all go see The Lego Movie as a family! You're such a joy!
