Goodbye Babyhood, Hello Childhood!

Ayne is now 3 years old. I must admit he's no longer a baby. Though he'll always be my baby no matter what. Everyday, he's learning new things, new words, new dance moves and new habits. There is always something to look forward to everyday. And believe me it is super fun! And he's starting to develp a sense of humor as well! What he usually do everyday is watch his favorite movies, shows, and for course what else? PLAY! He plays with his trains everyday. The trains from "Thomas and Friends", he no have 5 of them. He have Thomas, Gordon, Henry, James, Desiel and Duck. . And he wants to have more! He love them all. And he also love Buzz and Lightening Macquin! Cha Chow! ^.^ Anyway, I am anxious if he's learning the things he ought to learn or develop while on his age. I've researched about a 3 year old's developmental milestones. The items that are marked X are the things that my Ayne already know. ^_^

Ayne's is just 3 years and 2 months today and he still got a lot of things to learn (or he got his whole life that is). He's stepping into childhood now and I promise to be there every step of the way. I love you so much baby ko. ^.^ Please don't grow old that fast. :)

Yes, he is the apple of your eyes. That's understandable that you don't want him to grow too fast because you want to enjoy his babyhood a little longer. Yes, all his antics are just divine in the sight of his parents. And yes, every little change that happens to him is easily noticed and rejoiced by his parents. After all, your boy was fearfully and wonderfully made by the Lord. May he grow in reverential fear of the Lord and walk in His ways. Thanks for the feel good post. God bless you all always.

A big girl she is!

@Mama Alexa: Mama he's a he, though he looks like a she sometimes. Ehe! :']
