Well, we have officially reached the "Why?" stage. So far it's not too bad (granted it only started yesterday). I have a feeling this phase will get old fast - I'll just have to remind myself that he's curious.
While we were playing at the park...
Dominic: Why is that duck swimming in the water over there?
Me: Because ducks like to swim
Me: That's what ducks do.
Me: That's how God made them.
Dominic: Oh. Look he's coming over to me! Why? 'Cuz he wants to eat me?
Me: No, the duck doesn't want to eat you, he just wants to say hi.
Dominic: Why? He can't talk, he quacks.
Me:You're right, he's just coming to watch you.
Me: Because he likes you.
Dominic: I like him too...I'll just sit here and look at him for a second, ok Mom?
He sat there and watched the duck for a few minutes until they both lost interest and went their separate ways. I could sit and watch him all day, as he soaks up the world around him. It amazes me how much curiosity such a little person can have! Even though I don't want him to grow up (maybe just outgrow some behaviors), I can't wait to see what he will grow up to be...whatever he does, I know he will be amazing!
