Sunshine Cute-isms


Nonny bought Sunshine a Lego garbage truck which he and Pepper put together.  He's having a great time with his new vehicle!  Yesterday we heard him say, "I hate to do this to you, Garbage, but it has to be done."

Today he was reading his Bible aloud to me (The Beginner's Bible).  It was the story of the boy Jesus getting "lost" at the temple.  It said, "Mary and Joseph hunted for him for 3 days."  Sunshine asked, "Did they hunt for him to eat him?"  He was serious.  That one makes me a little sad.  It highlights how much context and vocabulary he is missing.  On the other hand, I love that he can ask about vocabulary when he isn't sure (he often does) and that he's curious to know.

All these things and more point out every day how he remains about 2 years behind his chronological age.  He's a perfect 6.5 year old in so many ways.
