Imagination

Dawson's imagination is exploding these days. Most of his waking moments are spent engaging in pretend play. His stuffed animals continually talk and carry on conversations with each other and with us. And the people and animals in his Little People Dollhouse and Farmhouse have the greatest encounters. But his imagination goes beyond his life-like toys. He wants everything to talk. If we're outside playing with balls, the balls have to talk. If we spot a leaf on the ground, the leaf has to talk. In the shower the other night, the water had to talk. It's crazy, and hilarious, and amazing. As usual, he is a little wonder that awes us.
