I went to the playground with him...
We were meeting a friend at the playground last week and Andon comes downstairs and says "this is what i'm wearing". I said "are you sure you want to wear that". He had nothing on underneath it so there was no going back once we left. He said "yeah mom, I look cool in this." Then I thought, you sure do.
Andon is 6 years old and just now starting to talk about looking "cool". Jared and I have already had a few conversations with him about it. He has been wanting to wear his hat backwards because he thinks it makes him look cool. What we say to him is "do you think it's cool? yes? then it is. That is ALL that matters. Being cool is not worrying what anyone thinks of you." It has been pretty interesting talking to a little 6 year old about this. We want Andon to be in this world but not of this world. We love talking about how God makes everyone so different and that that is AWESOME!
I can't believe my sweet little boy is growing up. I see him so little but I just know once that baby is here I won't see him so little anymore. I have adored our time alone together. God knew what He was doing giving us 6 years alone with Andon. He has been such a precious gift to Jared and I.
Here are a couple more pics of my "Cool Little Wolverine" posing before we left the house. :)
And you better believe after each and every shot he would run over and say "let me see". He'd come check it and then run back and do a new pose!! He is so funny! :)
