a portrait of my son, once a week, every week, in 2015
photo taken April 3, 2015 // Denver, Colorado
Raffa's language continues to explode. Not only does he know his colors, but he can now also count to eight (although, mostly he only makes it to five). He knows several letters including W, M, and A. He loves to sing and randomly sings "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star", "Patty Cake", "What a Wonderful World", "The Clean Up Song" throughout the day. He is constantly telling me "I want that" (for anything he wants), "I bring this" (for anything he wants to bring somewhere with him whether to the car, outside, or to bed), "read this", and "mama, sit down" (when he wants me to sit with him). He also likes to say "no way" instead of "no" and occasionally throws "right now!" on the end of a request. It is amazing to converse with him more than ever before; I absolutely love talking to him and never get sick of hearing him recount things we do.
