One of my favourite things about 2011 is how much Jonas has grown. He's matured so much this year. He's becoming more complex, which can be a mixed blessing sometimes, but mostly it's just pretty cool to see how much he's grown. He's playing outside with his friends without supervision, he can go to the store down the street on his own, he's helping more around the house and he's even had his first crush. It's more than just things like that though. He's thinking deeper thoughts, doing more complicated things, he looks older and he even carrys himself differently.
One of my other favorite things about 2011 is that, no matter how much he's grown, he's still got the heart of a little boy. He's dealing with some pretty weighty issues but he's still the optimistic, happy little guy he's always been. He loves nothing more than to share his things and his experiences, is quick to smile and laugh and is sensitive to other people's feelings.
And one more thing - I LOVE that Teddy is still his BFF!
