It’s interesting to see such a strong personality at just four months old. “It’s his way or the high way.” I can already tell we’re going to have our hands full as we train him up to be a well behaved and Godly young man. He is stubborn and spirited. Fortunately, these qualities have the potential to make him a great leader if kept in check and given a proper outlet. He is also very sweet and when he’s happy, you can’t wipe the smile off his face. Every day I find new ways to get him to laugh. He already loves to roughhouse; he is definitely a boy.
Today I put together his new stroller and we took it for a spin around the neighborhood. What a difference sitting upright makes! He actually enjoyed cruising around for once. Before we used a stroller frame that his infant carrier clicked into – but he would always cry unless he was asleep. I was convinced that it was because it forced him to lay back and I was right! Our neighborhood is still largely undeveloped, so there are plenty of paved roads without traffic – perfect for walks. Built on the side of a hill, this neighborhood really gives your calves a workout! His eyes were wide with curiosity as we walked up and down the hill on the empty road. I pointed out grass, rocks and wildflowers. We spent about 15 minutes outside until he got a little too tired and started whimpering. I’m going to start taking him out every day unless the weather is bad. He really enjoys being outside! What little kid doesn’t?
