Funny boy

 L enjoyed this water pumping activity so much.  The supervisor did bring him to me when he started to drink the water... I'm glad she was kind about that.
 He just loved to sit and watch the kids milk this fake cow.
I have a picture of him on this little structure last year.  He had just started to walk so it was so exciting to see him standing up.  Wow!
While we were in Gtown I got footage of L retrieving a ball at Lois' house with his mouth.  His new trick is to ask for ice.  He carefully places the ice cube on the floor and then chases it around with his mouth giggling until he catches it.  He's so funny.

everything I need

We had a great activity last week with the Primary.  One of the young women planned the activity all by herself.  L had a great time joining in with the big kids making boats, dropping plastic animals in a jar and even doing a balloon race.  He had his big brother there to help.  Lucky kid.

When L was little he could say "yes" very clearly.  He doesn't do that anymore.  Instead he asks for things, milk, ball, out, candy... and at the slightest sign of acquiescence he raises his arms and says "Yay!"  and walk away like a grand champion that just defeated a worthy foe.  Yep, that's about right.

I wonder if our lifetime of dreams is founded upon the strange situations we napped in as small children.  I hope L doesn't have a lot of bowling dreams.  He slept through the initial process of getting shoes, and 8 frames.  It was an epic nap.  I can't remember a child sleeping through such a long period of loud things.

And he's so cute.

We went to the park twice on Thursday for a total of 3.5 hours!  He is the king of the playground and takes on all sorts of ladders and slides.  It's great.

little brother

G is so good to L. He dressed him up in this suit.

 They've been wearing these matching shirts often.

so brave

 L is a child full of personality and fearless.  I love his sense of self preservation.  He goes up to the waters edge and throws rocks, not himself, in.  He is so excited to do everything his siblings do.  He is so adorable and busy.  Tonight he got to roam around this beautiful area by the intercoastal and pet Buddy the dog.  Also, L kissed me for the first time since I got back.  It's important for them to wrap my heart with their love. 

When it was time to go I said it was time to go and then started to leave.  lP was worried that I was leaving the baby behind.  "I'm not leaving him behind, I'm going.  He'll follow."  And he did.
