best little friends ever. dax is always talking about joshua and apparently joshua is always talking about dax. so, when i saw them both dressed in their gingham button down shirts i told them i must have a photograph to document this immense friendship.
today was the Easter musical performance at preschool. we didn't have our expectations set too high since in previous attempts at singing on a stage dax has either frozen completely up, or been more interested in the plants behind him, the carpeting, or laying down on the stage. however, our hearts leapt out of our chest today when not only did dax stand still with his classmates, but he actually sang words and did the hand motions too! we were so proud of our sweet boy pulling this off. he sung his little heart out and our favorite moment was when he sang "roll that stone away" and he acted as if his stone was heavy to get up the hill, but easily rolled down at about 50 mph. he gave struggling rolling hand motions followed by rolling hand motions that were almost completely out of control. too hilarious.
we love to see his personality blossoming and watching him develop friendships. he's pretty popular at school and we're glad that he's proving to be a good and compassionate friend. we're so glad he's not shy like mommy and daddy. every night he still prays for his friends, his teachers, and his family. such a sweet soul.
