Usually, when I link up to this fun little weekly post, it is because we just so happened to have taken pictures the weekend before. I try to save some just to be able to join and hopefully make some new friends. This week, however, I was prepared! Since the hubs has been working so hard these past couple of weeks, the little man and I have had lots of time to hang out together, just the two of us. It’s sort of the silver lining of an otherwise crappy deal.
I’ve mentioned before that Haeden loves to rock out on his guitar and various other instruments. Lately, he has decided to add some lyrics to his music. He doesn’t actually know any full songs at this age, just snippets. He mostly says, “I do. I do. I doooo!” I think it’s from that Colbie Caillat song that he has seen on the VH1 Countdown. And the other is “Ashes. Ashes. We all fall DOWN!” Pretty sure you recognize that one!
Anyway, I decided to try to teach him a new song to sing. It goes like this:
I love my Mommy! Yes I do!
I love my Mommy. It’s truuuueee!
Pretty fantastic, right? He actually got on board and started singing it right away, and it was the cutest thing ever. Of course, as soon as I got out my camera to record him… He stopped. I even tried to bribe him with candy, but he’d just play the guitar and then run into the other room. Little booger.
I switched gears and got him to take some silly pictures with me instead. Forgive the blur. Movement + low light + point-and-shoot are not ideal! Still, fun memories were capture, and that is always the real goal! (more…)
