What a Gentleman

When I was in college, I dated a guy for the sole reason that he held down the button on the water fountain for me to take a drink. I'd never seen anyone do that before and it totally blew me away.

Well, the other day, we were in the church building and Kathrynn wanted to get a drink from the water fountain - it's a new found obsession of hers now that she's figured out how it works. Well, she stepped up on the stool, and what do you know, Joe held down the button for her. I actually gasped. He is a natural-born gentleman. He pushes his chair in when he leaves the table. He willing shares his toys with all girls (except Kathrynn.. sisters are the exception, I think). He even used to give his food - hand fed to her mouth - to his favorite little friend in San Antonio.

I'm so grateful my little guy is such a sweetheart. I REALLY hope it sticks - between his consideration for girls and his need to have everything neat and clean, he's going to make some woman very happy one day.

On that note.. there's a little girl in our ward who has had a crush on him since the fall. I didn't know that 4 year olds could hold on to crushes that long, but I asked her mom yesterday after watching her follow Joe everywhere and she confirmed it. She's still "in love" with Joe. That's how she announced it to me and Steve in church one day, "I'm in love with Joe." :)

Timmy's got a little girlfriend too. It's so cute. He's told me that someday when he gets home from his mission, he will move away from my house and live with Annie. And then she will make him dinner.

How cute is that? They are constantly talking about each other.

Timmy: Mom, Annie wants to be my wife.
Me: Do you want her to be your wife?
Timmy: Yes, and then we'll be a family.

It's too cute!

That's hilariously cute :) When Caleb's bigger, I'll probably just be envious ;)

He is definitely a little sweetheart.
