He's Basically an Adult, People!

I'm not sure when the last time was that I posted a video of EH, but I'm pretty sure that compared to the video I'm going to post today, he probably seemed like a total baby.  That's because in today's video he practically seems like an adult.

The boy is going down the twisty slide.  BY HIMSELF.

On one of the smaller slides at the same park he didn't even need help getting up OR going down the slide.  He went up the stairs all on his own, sat down way too far away from the top of slide, shimmied his bum to the slide and then tried to count "one... two... " before going down all by himself.  Most of the time I just stood at the bottom of the slide - he didn't even need me!

Here's the video.

Doesn't he seem SO OLD??!?!

It really is amazing how much he's grown recently.  His vocabulary has increased exponentially, and he knows what he's talking about most of the time - it's a lot less babble than it used to be.

At a play date this past week they had an easter egg hunt for the little kids and even though we didn't think he was old enough to really care, he was SO into picking up the eggs and putting them in his bag whenever we pointed one out to him (he wasn't real great at actually finding them himself.)

Although I've been longing for warmer weather for my own personal reasons, I am now looking forward even more than ever to more park play days and eventually going to the swimming pool.  I can already tell that this summer is going to be blast with EH.  Can someone maybe take EH on his best (non-fussy) day and just freeze him in time for a little bit?  Because this age is just so adorable I finally understand why people say things like "they grow up so quickly."  Before I was always just like, "Ok bud, let's just grow up already, ok?"
