I can’t wait until Ben gets into coloring. I love coloring with my nieces and nephew. There is something so soothing about sitting down with a picture and a box of crayons. Ben has colored with crayons a little bit, but he tries to eat them sometimes. He also doesn’t quite have the ‘only color on the paper Mommy gives you’ rule down yet. Coloring remains a heavily supervised activity right now. Meo and Omi decided to help Ben out. They got Ben one of those great water coloring books from Melissa and Doug where you fill the little pen with water and the colors appear. Ben loves it! He sat quietly and colored for a good chunk of time. The colors appear as he puts the water on, and they dry back to normal so he can color again. It was so fun to watch him get into it. Thanks, Meo and Omi!
Another thank you goes to Gramma and Grampa for Ben’s super cute Steelers hoodie. With the freezing temperatures around here lately he has gotten a lot of use out of the warm hoodies. Doesn’t he look like such a little boy in his hoodie and jeans? I know, he is a little boy. But he looks less and less like a baby every day, Sigh, it’s very bittersweet to watch. He is so cute. We love him so much!
