Today I decided to try a new yoga dvd at home...and Monkey was along for the fun! He first was sitting on the couch while I was on the floor instructing me whenever I wasn't doing exactly what the lady on the dvd was doing "mom you're supposed to put your leg down now, mom you are supposed to use the other arm now". So instead of him being my new trainer for yoga I talked him into joining me on the floor and giving it a try too, he initially resisted but then joined in. He kept saying "we are doing awesome aren't we!" He was so chatty I couldn't keep up with the instructions from the dvd but I certainly had a wonderful time with my sweet wonderful son. I think next time I'll try it solo since I am pretty sure I missed out on the "relaxing" portion of yoga, however I wouldn't trade the tremendous memory we made today.

Last Friday Monkey had a very fun sleepover at Grandpa and Grandma's the ones with all the trucks as he refers to them as. It started out as them helping out Mommy because she had a party to do and then it became an even more fun adventure. Monkey also was able to go to his Uncle and Auntie's house and was able to ride four wheeler while his fuzzy cousin Diesel trailed along. So this is the background of the story that I really want to tell which is when Grandma picked Monkey up at preschool he felt compelled to be chatty during their travels to her house so he was filling her in on all the fun at school that day....which by the way he usually tells Mommy nothing without her dragging it out of him...but again not the point!

Grandma relayed the most endearing account of Monkey telling her how much he knew about why Jesus died on the cross, and where Jesus lives now in heaven, and that Jesus had been in a tomb but the stone was rolled away and he was gone. I cannot tell you how full my heart is that my sweet boy is learning the most important thing to ever learn and that is that Jesus died for us so that we can live eternally one day if we choose to accept Him as our Savior. What JOY I have in my heart to know Monkey has a heart for Jesus!
So tonight as we were tucking Monkey into bed, Daddy leaned over and kissed me on the cheek and then again on the cheek...and per our usual I try and hand off one of those kisses to Monkey for Daddy - however when I leaned in to do that Monkey said "Don't do that or I will tell your husband!" Tee funny!

Just yesterday monkey was yelling for Daddy to come up stairs from the kitchen, when Daddy tried to convince him to come down the stairs he said he could not because "it" was too heavy, when Daddy asked what was too heavy, he said the book was too heavy so he needed Daddy to come upstairs, when Daddy asked why, monkey said "because I want to read this book and I don't know how to read remember!" Ha ha....
Well the time has come for a new technology for me to try and capture more of the wonderful moments of our "monkeys" life, he is simply too entertaining to not be documenting these moments for future and for fun now!
