That Boy of Mine

I spent a morning just me and my little boy yesterday and I always enjoy those one on one moments with my kids so much.  They are always so involved in playing with each other when they are both here and it's nice to get them alone so they can have a conversation with me without the other one interrupting or interjecting.  I get to see more of their personality as an individual and I just love it.  I need to do it more often.  It's harder now that we are homeschooling since they are both always here.  So, yesterday we just hung out in the morning and he told me some of his funny little stories.  He has a funny sense of humor and he will just crack himself up, which in turn will crack me up.  Like for example, he said, "Mommy, what if I was sleeping and I was hugging Teddy and I dropped him on the floor and then when I went to pick him up, I actually picked up the Easter Bunny and squeezed him!"  And then he totally cracked up like that would be the craziest thing ever.  I asked him why the Easter Bunny would be in his room and he said maybe he was hopping around looking for a place to hide his Easter basket.  He's always coming up with this little 'what if' scenarios that make us laugh.  So yesterday while we were chatting and he was entertaining me I took some pictures of him.  He was wearing this shirt that just looks so classic little boy to me.  It reminds me of something my brother would have worn in the 80's.  He just needs some short shorts and some striped tube socks to go with it. :)  Just kidding, I wouldn't got that far!  Here's my sweet, sweet boy.

So, he came to me a couple of months ago and told me he wanted "beach hair".  Then he proceeded to tell me how he wanted his hair to look like the Lego minifigure who came with his Lego beach house.  Then he ran and got the little hair piece and put it on his finger to show me.  I'm like, "That hair is plastic so your hair is not going to look exactly like that."  But he loves it and so that is the look we are going for.  Mostly it just looks like he needs a haircut.  I'm hoping if it gets to be about an inch or so longer it will actually swoop to the side like he wants.  We'll just have to wait and see!

I love his expression in this one. 

I don't even know what is going on here, but he thinks this is funny and told me I should post it. :)

So, while we were chatting, he asked me, "Mommy, can people's eyes look in two different directions at once?"  I explained to him that they can't really, but you can go cross eyed and then I showed him.  He wanted to do it too, so I had him look at my finger and he did it on the first try.  Then he needed a photo of it.  By the way, he told me not to post this photo because it's embarrassing.  How this is embarrassing and the previous one isn't I completely don't understand!  But I'm posting it anyway because it's adorable.


I got a peek at his dimple as he was walking away.  :)

These pictures remind me of some I took a couple years ago in the same spot in my bedroom.  Click here to check them out!  I can't believe how big he looks now compared to then.  And it seems like it wasn't that long ago at all.

We are looking forward to a fun Easter celebration tomorrow so I'll hopefully be back next week with some stories and photos to share.

  1. He sure is adorable, Shawna! I love moments with my boy, too. It is so fun to "peek" inside their minds. I just gave Hans a haircut - the first time I ever did. It's OK, but I kind of messed up the sideburns :)


Comments make me happy.
