We made it past the terrible twos! Looking back compared to the start of three, maybe it wasn't so terrible :P Three is interesting. Lots of great thoughts, imagination, energy, and tons of attempt to reason but usually for all the wrong reasons. We started off Colton's 4th year by going to church, and sending off prayers that the big man upstairs leads him down the right path. Colton followed that by throwing himself in the aisle and quickly jumping into an alligator like death roll. We're clearly going in the right direction.
In all fairness, that's just Colton. He knows what he wants, plans everything out, and expects it to be executed to his expectations. He is relentless in making things work just as he envisions it with the brains of an engineer and the actions of a bull in a china shop. I think my favorite thing about watching Colton grow up has been watching him learn his strengths and weaknesses and his likes and dislikes. He's assertive, polite, and hardworking. He asks questions, and he'll keep asking the same questions until he gets the answer he wants or a better explanation of the right answer.
Colton's year included all his favorite things: trains, trips to Virginia, trains, trains in Virginia, baseball, golf, trains at the driving range, school, playgrounds, playgrounds near trains, zoos, train rides at the zoo, well you get the hint. I don't share a ton of Colton through my business work mainly because he's the hardest client I've ever had to deal with. Ever. So I wanted to take a few minutes to share a few favorites now :)
I think he'll be death rolling all over this year! Here are a few past favorites from the year of THREE!
