Taj finally discovered how fun it it to brush his teeth. Usually this process involves me pinning him down on my lap with his arms to his sides and I wait until he cries so that his mouth is open and I can give those little piranha teeth a good scrubbing. Tonight however, he pushed his little stool up to the sink and watched himself brushing his teeth in the mirror. After about 10 minutes I had to pry the toothbrush out of his fingers. I'm hoping this newfound love for dental care lasts!
Another first: he actually kind of liked the camera tonight. He kept stopping and posing for me. The look he gave me was like, "How about this mom? Is this look good? Wait let me do that one more time for you!"
THE latest must-have item of the week: a yellow bullet bike that Taj nabbed from grandma's house. He wouldn't get in the bath without it. In fact, when he couldn't find it in his toy box in his room, he jetted downstairs real quick, naked and all, and came back 20 seconds later, motorcycle in hand. I swear he never forgets where he puts things, which makes me wish even more that he could talk so that when he loses our car keys or the remote he could just tell us where he hid them.
Okay, so every time I glance at this it freaks me out because for a second that leaf looks like a dead mouse on my pillow. Really though, it's just a dead leaf, but it's special to me because Taj hand picked it out of the straggler dead leaves in our yard just for me. My first thought was: Oh how sweet, my first "flower" from Taj! (I'm not being facetious by the way either, I really did think it was sooo cute). Then he picked up his own leaf and we had a sword fight. I forgot that he's soooo in to Peter Pan lately. I'm assuming that I was Captain Hook and he was Peter Pan. I love that little boy!
