A Whole New World

Leo has been on countless train journeys.
Short journeys, and some not so short ones.
He has never even thought twice about it, 
let alone got excited about the fact he was going on a train.

With age comes wisdom though,
and with age comes knowledge and anticipation.
On our recent train journey Leo was so very excited to be travelling on the train.

He couldn't wait to get out of his pushchair and into his very own 'chair'.
Leo kept on telling me 'Choo Choo' and now if you ask him what a train says,
he tells you.

He looked so grown up sitting on his very own seat, 
for the first time completely still.
No fidgeting unlike the last occasions we have travelled, just content as he sat there watching the world whizz past out of the window.
Leo pointed out everything he caught sight of, enjoying the experience like it was the very first time he had travelled on a train.

This is just another sign that tells me Leo is growing up.
We are just over a month away from his Second birthday,
 and I can see my toddler growing up right in front of my eyes. 

This next year is going to see him mature in so many other ways, 
he is going to gain a new understanding and grow excited for so many new things, even the things he has done before but never really experienced.

It is like he is begining to see the world in a whole new way, like someone has just switched on a light and he can see more magic in the world.

The sense of adventure is more alive than ever, 
and I for one cannot wait to experience this magic with my little Leo.
