And this just in . . . today, on Easter Sunday 2009, Edgar penned (actually “crayoned”) his first initial!
He did it in true Edgar fashion–with no buildup, little fanfare, and when we were least expecting it. Perhaps it’s the “second child syndrome,” if there is such a thing, where milestones just sort of happen in this way; or–and I think this is probably more likely–it’s Edgar, truly one of the most easygoing, good-natured, unassuming individuals roaming the planet. Granted, over the last several weeks we have noticed a marked increase in his fascination with letters and spelling. He has been asking us to spell words for him and has been remarking when he sees and hears “my ‘E.'” So, I guess you could say we weren’t surprised by this . . .
But, oh, how proud we were . . .
We can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next, Edgar!
