I meant to post this forever ago, but a while back I was teaching my class so it was just Thomas home with the boys and he went to change Asher's diaper and when he came back to the kitchen Ambrose was drawing this:
all by himself!
He's drawn "people" before of course, but this actually looks like a person!
When I got home that morning and saw his masterpiece I was pleased as punch.
These boys are determined to grow up and there's sadly nothing I can do about it, but happy pieces of progress like this sure make the growing-up-and-not-being-my-sweet-little-babies process way more bearable!
