Soul Searching

One thing I have been thinking about lately is Nathanael’s blooming personality.  Will he be an extrovert or an introvert?   Is he funny or serious?  Is he pessimestic or optimistic? etc.

I think Nathanael has a gentle soul.  I’m not sure I would actually call him sensitive but I when his little heart hurts, it’s a deep wound.  I said something last week that I didn’t think Nathanael understood but he did and it hurt him.  And I really I had to spend a good amount of time building that little soul back up.  Of course, I felt awful.  And it was a good lesson for me.  It really broke my heart to feel his little heart hurting. 

I also think he is an introvert and I so pleased about that!!!!!  Nathanael likes to go out and about but is also very ready to come home and chill.  He def is one of those people who recharges by being quiet vs. those who recharge by being by others. 

N seems to have a good sense of humor.  His laugh is really one of God’s great gifts.  And he seems to get our little jokes and sometimes he developes his own. 

I think Nathanael’s veral skills are fine or within the normal range; but I have to believe his physical coordiation is way up there.  This kid is pretty amazing.  Since he was little he could climb up things he had no right to and he did it with such sure-footedness that you had to remind yourself that this wasn’t a smart thing for him to do.

We’ll see how things develop but I feel like we are in this little magic, toddler bubble that I’m going to be quite sorry for him to move on to the next milestones.
