Kids, man

Soren turned one last week.  Can you believe it?  No, you cannot.  It is an impossible but true science fact.

He has developed some pretty awesome abilities over the last month or so.  Most impressive to his librarian parents, he has developed a deep interest in books.  I've been pushing them since day one, but he's only ever been interested in them as teethers.  But now he'll pick one out, climb into your lap, and wait for you to begin.  He likes to turn the pages for you.  He also likes reading to himself, though.  He'll flip carefully through Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb (his current favorite), studying each page and babbling to himself.  (Reading!)  And he laughs when gets to a page he thinks is funny.  Kids, man!

Scientific facts are awesome. And so is Soren. I can't believe he's one already! I hope he doesn't mind that I will still call him baby Soren when he's 23.

Does that not just make your heart break? I practically weep when my kids do this, it makes me so happy.

He really does look very learned here.
