A Thankful Heart: Colin
Oh, Colin. What did we ever do without you? How dull our days must have been without your furious ball of emotions. The laughing. The crying. The dancing. The screaming. The drama. The joy.
Colin feels every emotion to the fullest extent, and he will let you know exactly what that feeling is. A guessing game is never in effect when it comes to my Colin.
His latest thing is to ask about the sights and sounds around him. "Momma! What's that noise?" "Momma! What's that sound?" and on and on. Taking him into any type of store is like a visual feast for him. He has to know what every sight, smell and sound is. I am not talking ordinary stuff, he wants to know the sound of a cart wheel that ticks. He wants to know the smell of the freshly ground coffee beans as we walk by a Starbucks. Getting out of the car, he needs to know what the sound is of a semi-trucking rumbling down the road, half-mile away. If I am not sure what sound he is talking about, he will mimic it perfectly. Who knows, maybe this one will do something with music or sound design.
Colin is also quick with a joke. He knows exactly what buttons to push with his brother, and does so hilariously. If you make a joke with Colin, he will remember it a week later and repeat it back to you with perfect comic timing.
There is never a dull moment with my sweet boy and I am thankful for every one of those moments. Dramatically happy, dramatically mad, dramatically hilarious. This little boy makes my heart just sing with the joy that he brings. Colin makes my heart oh, so thankful.
