Hehehehehe. I love when he crawls inside the bucket. Hehehehe....snort...hehehe. It will never get old. He hugged my mom today! Without being asked! Other FX mommies can probably relate to this story. Punkin gets so excited and shy that he can't look people in the eye to hug them, so he taps their chests with the tops of their heads. A headbutt. But today, he full-on wrapped his arms around Oma's neck, layed his head against her shoulder, and left my arms for hers. This was after the church directory fiasco. OH my GOSH. We had to have our picture taken for the directory. He wouldn't sit on my lap, so the photographer had me stand and hold him. But every time I stood up, adjusted our clothes, and smiled, he did a nose dive for the floor. This went on for at least 5 minutes. We were lucky to get two shots. I've since put a kitchen towel masquerading as a tree skirt around the base.
Punkin got this last year. He reads the entire "'Twas the Night Before Christmas." We're a little scared, but a lot mesmerized. He's afraid to touch him I think because his mouth opens and closes and his eyes blink. But he keeps asking me to play him, "Na-nain" (again).
