He's creative, living in his imagination, acting out super-hero adventures in every day life.
He's compassionate, quick to sense emotion and eager to respond.
He's particular and quirky, keeping life interesting and amusing.
And he's down-right good!
Tovi's name means good in Hebrew. Like in Genesis, when God created and saw that it was good. He is literally our good boy.
4 has been a fantastic year. We've lived in capes and masks, even to the grocery store. Tovi fell in love with Robin, the Boy Wonder, the side-kick extraordinaire. We've giggled until we've got the hiccups. We've been to Florida twice. We've made major changes in our lives. We've learned to write our name, phonics, right from left, and how to get to our favorite places around town. We've snuggled. And snuggled. And snuggled. I've loved every age, but I must say, this has been my favorite so far. I'm a little sad to leave it behind, but I know more adventure is yet to come.
Tovi turned 5 today. It's a big deal.
So tonight, I'm not imparting wisdom or mulling over life's lessons. I'm just bragging on my precious Tovi. So here are a few of my favorite Tovi-isms from this last year!
"On the way home, Tovi said, "Mom, I'm thirsty. How about we stop here for a nice, cold juice?" Sweet-talking little boy!" (May 10, 2012)
That's my Tovi James, and I love him!
