Man it has been a fast and furious few months for the Skates home. Easton has gotten so big. It's so hard for me to believe that he will be 2 on Halloween. He is such a big boy and is so smart. He knows exactly what he wants and knows if he is suppose to have it or not. He knows the names of everyone in the family without us asking who they are. He can point to a picture and tell us who they are. Easton also can count to 5 clearly. We are still working on the numbers on his fingers though. He sits at the dinner table like a big boy in his booster seat. He gets his own fork or spoon out of the drawer and goes to sit down at the table. Easton also has a very specific routine in the mornings that we have to stick to or he is cranky. He has to watch his shows (Mickey, Einsteins, Chuggington, Jake or Doc McStuffins) and eats his breakfast. While he is doing his thing, we get ready for work and get the car packed. We then get Easton dressed and ready to go to school. When we drive up to school he looks and says "Rina" (Corina his teacher) and gets so excited. We have finally passed the crying stage when I drop him off in the mornings. He has so many words now. Too many to write down in fact. Keith and I are so blessed to be able to call Easton ours. He has blessed our lives in so many ways that it's unbelievable. Here are some pics to catch you up.
