Reuben's 3rd Birthday
It's hard to believe our middle child is 3 years old today! Time keeps on flying by as we go through life. We have been so blessed by our sweet Reuben as his rough and tumble play meets sweet snuggler. He reminds me so much of Jim in his personality and look. I love the way he is himself. He is beginning to try to do what the older 2 kids are doing, but at the same time content to be who he is.
This year, especially the last few months, Reuben has really blossomed. He is communicating more, answering questions and really desiring to learn. We officially started pre-school with him during our homeschool time and he is loving it. He is quickly picking up letter sounds, numbers and colors as well as growing his vocabulary. It is so fun to watch him grow. He loves to be outside and play. This is probably his favorite thing to do. He also loves to swing when we are at the playground. Reuben is an observer. He pays attention to everything and takes it all in. That is also fun to see. Really, he is just a fun kid. I love this little boy and I am so thankful that God gave Reuben to our family.
