Valentine Man

Check out the beeeeyooootiful artwork that I had commissioned recently:

William's teachers proudly informed me that William not only placed all the pieces of his Valentine in the appropriate spots but he did so all by himself without any help or prompting from anyone. The teachers said he did the best Valentine in the class. I'm sure they don't just tell that to any ol' parent who walks in the door to pick up their energetic little tyke at the end of a busy day. No sirree. William is special. I mean, really. Can we just go ahead and call him a genius or what? Is Harvard still accepting applications for the fall?

David noticed that William even placed the right hands on the right side of his little Valentine person. Genius! Genius, I tell you! I wonder if any galleries are currently looking for new artists to exhibit.

Okay, in all seriousness, I am actually proud. William really did do a nice job, and it was cool to hear that he arranged the body parts correctly without any help. All the teachers did was glue them on after he picked out where he wanted them to go. He really seems to be making more sense of the universe and how things work every day. That really is quite amazing. I'm constantly amazed by the fact that he says new words every single day, and that he can answer questions and even put together some sentences. He really seems to have been paying attention all these months, collecting all this information in his brain like a woman rolling soft yarn into a ball, and now it's just spinning out of him.

I really do love my little Valentine man made by my little Valentine boy. I'll be keeping this Valentine for a long, long time.

That really is pretty amazing! Isn't it wonderful to watch him develop new skills? He seems to be very observant of everything around him.
