|The birthday boy!|
Yesterday, Seth turned two years old. Most days I forget that he was born with a scary heart problem and had a major surgery when he was six days old, but on his birthday I definitely remember. I watched Seth all day and I am so grateful that he is healthy and part of our family. He has developed quite the personality.
Seth is speaking a lot. We were worried for awhile that he would never talk, but he says tons of words. Some of our favorites are: c'mon (whenever he wants you to play with him), HEY! (whenever someone does something that he doesn't like), love you (for obvious reasons), and yeah (his response to almost everything).
Seth knows about half the letters of the alphabet and anytime he sees an S, he tells us about it. He loves S because that is the first letter in his name. He also knows green, red, and sometimes blue. He knows star and heart. We love to hear him say his prayers. For the longest time when Seth finished his prayer, he would say, "Bye Bye!" It was so cute. But starting in June, he says "amen" which is nice, but not nearly as darling.
Seth loves vehicles--garbage trucks like Dax, tractors, cars, but most of all trains! He can't say train yet, so they are "choo choos." He gets so excited to see any kind of train and he also loves to play with his train tracks. Seth also loves dogs and has three different stuffed animal dogs in his crib that he MUST sleep with.
Seth is very independent. If he wants something, he just climbs on a chair to get it. He also loves to help. Seth is a good garbage man and dishwasher starter. He also loves to vacuum. He will push the vacuum around anywhere, running or not running. Hopefully, Seth will also want to help with the chores. Seth also doesn't get pushed around by his brothers. He has already learned to hold his own and bosses them around/beats them up quite frequently.
Seth gives the best "squeezes." We love when we pick him up and he hugs really tight and says, "squeeze." Seth is truly a blessing in our lives and we love him more and more every day. We can't wait to see how he is as a two year old!
