Favorites (Foto Friday)

Hey, I still have a few minutes left on Friday to get this thing posted!

Today's feature are the kids' current favorite things. Let's start with the eldest, shall we?

At Boo's school, they were asked to dress up as their favorite character from a book. I had her look through her books and we'd discuss which one she thought was her favorite. She picked a cat and then expected me to just whip out a full cat costume in a couple days. I may be good, but I'm definitely not that good. This was her second choice:


Can you guess who she is here? Here's the answer:


The Boy - as I've mentioned before - likes trains. It goes beyond a favorite, though. I think "obsession" is more like it.


Recently, the Man took the Boy to a miniature train show held locally. We kept it a surprise, just telling him that he got to go somewhere special. When he saw all the trains, his head nearly exploded. They spent almost two hours at the show - a lifetime for the attention span of a three-year-old - looking and looking again at all the displays. That was a few weeks ago and he still talks about it daily.

Then there's Baby. She has very simple needs. But here is her very favorite position:


Tightly wrapped in her blanket (so her arms can't move), binky firmly in place. And no siblings in her face. I think we can safely say that the question about her eye color has been resolved.


P.S.
In regards to my last couple of posts...if the Man had been out of town for an extended period, then it would be really, really wonderful that he came home today!

Boo looks ADORABLE! Baby looks delicious:) and the boy looks like he is going to burst with happiness! i think all boys go through a train obsession at one time or another. mys sisters boys are both into it right now. P's was about age 2. We would watch the Polar express over and over for MONTHS. I didn't mind that obsession one bit when I compare it to some of his others:)

Cute, cute kids. The picture of the baby makes me want to have another. But then again ... maybe not.

Look at that cute mouse!! And I bet that train show surprise is something he will always remember. Very cool. And your little one is just beautiful. She rocks purple.

Bobie said...

Love the pics. Glad hubby is home. I miss cuddling with my babies all wrapped up and cute as a bug!! :)

Amber said...

I need to hold that baby some more. FYI. Also love the mouse and the boy. We've never experienced the love that is trains- but I'll pretend I can relate. If he likes planes you should bring him up to the airplane museum and we'll go with you.
