The evolution of the superhero for Boy O: First it was just dressing up for Halloween. Then it was the simple addition of a cape (even a dish towel would do). Now he gets up early, puts on his spiderman costume and cape beneath his regular clothes and goes about his day. His reasoning is that he needs his uniform in case someone needs saving. What was I thinking when I brought home the original Superman movie for movie night?
I even have to specify which shirts he is allowed to wear over his costume. The foam muscles tend to stretch out a regular shirt. He doesn't seem to understand why the costume cannot be worn out in public if it is underneath his clothing.
Swimming has been a fabulous new addition to our schedule. Boy O is a natural in the water. Here is a picture of him before his first lesson. Pure excitment in his swimsuit and towel. Hopefully Baby O and I can join in the fun next month when new lessons begin.
Baby O is really starting to communicate. I used to think I had the bedtime song down. I sang the whole prologue of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat before laying him in his crib. Now, if I even start that song, he says, BABY. I quickly learned that this meant, Hey Lady-I want you to sing Rock-a-by-baby. Don't quit your day job. Have I mentioned that I'm not much of a singer and love musicals?
The glass doors in our house will never be the same, and neither will Valentine's day. We made cards for Daddy O, a heart shaped chocolate cake and after dinner had a scavenger hunt for Boy O to find his special Valentine (clues to find goodies are a great incentive for first time readers!). I'm surprised they could even fall asleep with all the frosting in their system.
Lots of Love, Happy Valentine's Day.
