I almost hate this picture; only because it makes you look so old.  You are growing up so fast!  It's really very cool to see your personality emerge and watch you begin to navigate the world on your own terms. I'm just so proud of you already!

The other day we took a little walk to HEMA. Along the way Tites starting crying because he had a 'boogie' and having forgotten a tissue I told him he'd have to wait until we got home.  You came alongside me, did your little shrug, and dug into the pocket of your skinny jeans - "it's okay Mommy, I brought a tissue, just in case."  You proceeded to pull out a tissue and wipe Tites' nose with it.  From then on, you carry a tissue in your pocket and you always remind me that you have it 'just in case.'

You're an awesome little dude.

This made me cry just because it is evident Dutch has passed from being a toddler to being a boy. Such a wonderful, caring, thoughtful boy. And I'm not at all surprised that he plans for "just in case" first born that he is!
