Yesterday . . ..
while the lil' farm hand was napping. . .
I whipped up a batch of blue play dough.
I brought the grands picnic table inside. . .
set out some work utensils. . .
and. . .
The nap seemed longer than usual. . .
he didn't need to call us but once.
Since it was his mommy's idea. . .
she got to be the play dough instructor.
I got to see the wheels turn in his head. . .
the ideas forming and taking shape. .
and the picture taker. . .
for his future reference of "firsts".
Later . . .when Grandpa came in. . .
the play dough took on more life animal shapes.
I make cats. . .he makes elephants. .
and the lil' farm hand calls out what he sees.
Kanneloni Macaroni. . .
turned eight weeks yesterday.
She's a happy baby.
Her speciality. . .
coos. . .and smiles.
All for now. .
