He's sweet and sour. Super troublesome one minute, then kissing you all over the next. If you can get past the messy mayhem, the reward is more than worth it.
Throughout the day he'll drop to the floor saying 'my knee hurts, I can't walk.' He'll sit there pitifully begging for mercy, staring at himself crying in the mirror, like an actor peeking at the crowd's reaction. Sometimes he'll speak nonsense with conviction like its a totally normal part of the conversion.

He likes to be off in his own little world alot muttering, acting things out. Mari and I were possibly probably the same way when we were kids.
So unconventional moments when he's present or aware of social cues strike me with surprise and joy. Like yesterday we were riding in the car on a perfect 78 degree day, with the windows open. He closed his window and I heard, "Nala, you don't like the wind? The wind is bothering you?"

I think his art reflects his growing imagination and style. I'm so impressed by his ability and the way he excels in non-verbal intelligences (like sports, climbing and drawing). He's a great kiddo and I'm so freggin enamored:)
