It's all about a picture frame...

Little r has been blowing our minds these past couple weeks with how much he's remembering and saying.  We love that he is really starting to remember faces and names now, and he connects people to his memories.  It literally feels like this transition happened over night.  Where did this little boy come from?

This morning we were in the middle of our usual morning routine having breakfast together (need I say it?) in front of the television while little r watches his favorite movie of the "mood."  He randomly gets up out of his chair and goes over to the picture frames we have sitting on our bookshelves next to the TV.  He grabbed one and handed it to me, and then grabbed the other.  Each of these pictures were of his grandma's.  One was with my mom on her horse out at her ranch in California, and the other is of Big R and his mom sitting on a rock along the Potomac River.  He put the pictures on the floor and started talking about them and to them.  He said, "Hee-ma [Grandma] on a horse!" and "Daddy with Hee-ma on the water!"  It was really sweet, so I had to take a picture of it and share this story (especially since today is my mom's birthday).
