I notice changes now that I don't see him everyday. His vocabulary is growing by leaps and bounds so I can tell what he's talking about now, what he wants to do and where he wants to go.
I had cookies when they came and they were the first thing he saw. "Cookie", he says, grabs one and out we go out to enjoy the hottest day of April. Zane loves this little car, but it is hard to drive with a cookie, so he kept hopping out every little bit, to get it from the little picnic table to take bites. So, he would play a little while and say, "cookie!", and want to run in and get another. I let him get three, but the cat ate one. I had to hide the rest.
Zane just loves to throw the basketball into the net. It's just too bad, we don't have one his size. It's hard work to let him play.
And then, what little boy doesn't like to play in water?
Lorene was a bit annoyed when she saw he was wet, and I asked if she had some extra clothes for him. She didn't, but there are too big clothes saved downstairs. When he comes to our place, he gets dirty. There was water in the seat of the car to sit in, water at the base of the basketball hoop to jump in, sand under the trampoline to throw and sit in, and a dusty gravel drive to drive his loader in. It's hard to take pictures with all that dirt and water, but we got a few.
That's MY boy, and I'm enjoying watching him grow up. This age is a wonderful age.
