together time

Last night L brought me 2 library books I'd been reading.  I picked him up and took him to my room to snuggle and read.  After a while he got out of bed and went to get the other book and set himself up to read the novel.  I just enjoyed that time with him thumbing through the book.  Then I went and got him a book with pictures.  He laid down and read and occasionally talked about what was in the pictures or leaned over to give me a kiss.  When I rolled over to read on my stomach, he rolled over too and that's where he fell asleep.

little bird

L is becoming quite a parrot.  He answers the questions in Dora and copies a lot of words the children use.  He's so adorable and fun.  Today he came in and cuddled with me for a few minutes before asking for a bottle of milk.  I'm glad he has times when he can be cuddly and sweet.  Today he fell asleep on the way home from the park and P unbuckled him when they got home.  He woke up enough to get out of his chair but then fell asleep on the bench seat and later was sleeping on the floor of the car for hours.  He's so fun.

new adventures

Last week we went to Swing Park for the first time in a long time.  L has grown up so much so now he's able to have such a fun time.
 This park has so many cute little nooks and this little guy is in his element.
He was looking super cute today with this magnifying glass.

L loves the horses.  I never remember to bring the ticket.  He stands by the gate and signs "Horse".   We're planing to go to this park again on Tuesday so I'm going to put it in my wallet for next time.  Really I should put it in the car next to the frosty coupons.  But I'd be really sad if it blew away, so I won't do that.

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.
