Every morning my mom comes over to see Boden before we leave for the day. It is their "time" together. And every morning my mom puts him in his car seat and kisses him, gives him loves, and they each do the I Love You sign to one another with their fingers. And if for some reason my mom forgets any of these three things, he is heart broken. He has to call her on the phone right away and ask her why she didn't give him a hug or whatever she missed. He loves his Grams so much!
He knows that the green gasoline pump is for diesel trucks and that our truck is a gas truck, so we don't use the green pump. He can name every color of dirt bike for you with their appropriate manufacturer, i.e. red = Honda, blue = Yamaha, green = Kawasaki, yellow = suzuki, etc. Motorcycles are his favorite. When asked if he wants a brother or sister, his response is "a Motorcycle." He can run a four wheeler pretty much by himself. He knows and says that, "Mama, you have to feather the throttle." I'm afraid this kid is going to be a gear head and it is inevitable that motorcycles and other machines are in the near future.
He does not like to disappoint anyone and I hope that this trait continues. :) The other day I was putting him in his car seat and he had both hands in his pockets holding on tightly to two candies. I was trying to put the seat belt on him and this is how the conversation went:
Me: Take your hands out of your pockets so I can do up your seat belt.
Bo: Don't yell at me.
Me: I didn't yell at you.
Bo: You were just telling me?
Bo: Smiles and says, "Oh, okay. Bring it in for a hug."
I could go on and on about this little man. He seems to warm hearts of everyone around him. I know that God has a specific plan for him and I know his light will shine for others to follow. He is truly an angel in my eyes. I cannot imagine my life without him.
Here are some pictures. Enjoy!
