Tomorrow marks 10 months since Jude has joined our family. He is such a JOY! He has such a fantastic sense of humor, honestly, he makes me laugh out loud on a daily basis. God must have known that all the happiness and laughter he brings to our family would more than balance the additional workload 😉 I truly thank God for our precious Jude all the time, and I am so glad that God made it clear to us that he was our son, I hate to think of our lives without him!
He now points to letters and tries to name the letter, but his pat answer is “E O E!” Then he cracks up at himself… and usually has everyone else laughing with him. How can we resist that big ol’ grin?! His vocabulary is exploding… he is adding new words daily. He loves to name things, waiting to make sure we know he knows the correct word. Occasionally he’ll even start up a conversation with a stranger… his opening line is usually, “Shirt!” as he points to his own shirt. When he’s feeling feisty he opens with “Pants!” 😉 Yesterday I was dressing him in a button- up shirt. So he said to me, “jack”. He was informing me that this was a jacket since one must put it on one shirtsleeve at a time… I just didn’t have the heart to correct Mr. Smartypants 😉
