Handy Joey

Joey found his construction helmet this weekend, and couldn't wait to put it on.
With his sweatshirt, jeans, and Timberlands on (thanks, Shae!), he looked so authentic!

Bear Hat

Doesn't he look adorable in the bear hat?

Follow the Leader

Joey loves to help his Daddy cut the grass. I was able to capture this action shot of follow-the-leader. Only trouble is, I can't tell who's enjoying it more. What's your vote?

Birthday Party Fun

Happy Birthday, Wolfie!
Joey had fun helping Wolfie unwrap his presents, play with his new toys, and of course eat cake! We couldn't get that party hat off him all day - he took two home and has been wearing them all week. Guess what we're definitely having at his next party.

Sidewalk Chalk

After the park, we played out front with some sidewalk chalk.
Joey was so afraid someone would walk on his drawing. I wonder what he'll think when he sees it's still there the next day.

A Day at the Park

It was beautiful today after work, so we headed to the park.
My cool dude in his sunglasses.
He climbed right up on the see-saw all by himself. (It doesn't seem that long ago that I had to pick him up onto the see-saw and stand by him to make sure he didn't fall off. Now, he just needs me to help him go up and down!)
Heading down the slides!

Easter Egg Hunt

After the pancake breakfast on Saturday, there was an Easter egg hunt. They split the kids up into age groups and then let them loose. There were eggs and candy everywhere.
Joey was more than happy to run around the playground and pick up the goodies.
Actually, that's all he wanted to pick up. I kept telling him to get the eggs, and he said no, Mom, I want the treats.
I finally convinced him there were treats inside the eggs, too. Then, whenever he picked one up, he had to open it right then and there before putting it in his bag. Thankfully, the younger kids had all lost interest much earlier than Joey, so he can home with plenty of treats (and eggs).

Face Painting

On Saturday, our daycare had their annual Easter pancake breakfast. They have all kinds of games for the kids to play, and some of the teachers were painting faces. Of course, when we first got there, Joey wanted nothing to do with anything. Eventually he saw enough of his friends and was willing to try the face paint.
When he sat in the chair, the teacher asked what color he wanted. He pointed to the green, so she started painting a caterpillar.
Given how reluctant he was to sit down in the first place, I was impressed with how well he behaved while the teacher was painting his face.
He was so excited when his caterpillar was done! One of the cute post-painting interactions ... during bath time, I heard him crying to his dad about his alligator. What? Then when we asked him about his alligator, he said he didn't want Daddy washing off his alligator. Caterpillar, alligator - either way, he was attached. We had to promise him we'd find somewhere else to get his face painted later.
