Letters to Rex 4/8/15
Rex Allen, My not so little baby boy. When I ask you if you're a baby now, you always tell me no. Makes me sad. I want you to stay my little baby! Your personality is a force to be reckoned with. You can go from sweet to fit throwin' in 3 seconds flat. And each side is on opposite ends of the spectrum. When you're sweet, you're the sweetest boy I've ever met. Grabbing my cheeks so you can give me a big kiss. But, when you're mad....boy you are mad. I'm gonna go ahead and take credit for that specific personality trait, as your mama does have a bad temper. :)
You spent a few months going to school with Miss Kelly and Mattie Marie. I think you really enjoyed your time there. Once you figured out that Miss Kelly was going to call your bluff and make your little butt sit in time out. But you're best friends now. Your language exploded once you went back to school. You talk so much now, and it seems like you are saying new words every day. You are throwing less fit....I think because you can finally tell us what it is that you want.
You are all boy though! A little dirt or mud or anything gross never seems to bother you. One surprising thing is that most of the grandkids are scared of Pa at some point. Not you. You call his bluff every single time. And I think you have successfully broken down that old cowboy. He talks about you to everyone he sees. He plays and tickles and wrestles with you. He talks about how he can't wait to get you in the work truck with him and Poppy Rex. What a fun time that will be!
You still love your Granny! You are a Granny's boy! I think I could drop you off at Granny's for a week and you would never ask when I was coming back.
I love it when you wake up in the morning and start singing. Your version of abc's or wheels on the bus, or twinkle twinkle. I love to hear your little voice. You love to throw balls...so in a couple more years we will see if you will be ready for TBall. I'm sure your Uncle Tanner would really like that a lot.
You're back to staying home with me, at least for this week. At first I was nervous how you would react to another schedule change. But you have surprised me. You really just go with the flow. Play a while, ask to sit on my lap for a while, and then back down. You still love to take Sissy to school and pick her up so you can see the school buses. You are all into cars, trains, big trucks, school buses, anything a little boy would like!
You are growing so much every day, son. Please slow down! I want you to still walk up to me and say "Up Now" for a while longer.
I love you more than you could ever imagine.
Forever and ever,
