Popcorn Party!

Marshall is on a special diet to help with his talking and social skills.  He desn't eat gluten or casein (a compound found in dairy products), but he can have popcorn popped on the stove.  So one afternoon I made him some as a treat and went back in the kitchen to clean up.  I heard a lot of quiet, so I had to check and see what the boys were up to.  They were having a party!  Which was a little scary, since Malcom is too little for popcorn, but he was not interested in EATING it, just crunching it with his hands. 
 Crunch, crunch, crunch! 
 Marshall really likes popcorn.  And the remote. 
 Now, I bet you thought MARSHALL made this mess, right?  I thought so.  But after a few minutes, i caught something that makes me pretty sure Malcom was the popcorn dumper!

That's Not Where I Left My Baby

Someone is learning to crawl.  And that someone is Malcom!  But hs can only go backwards, which is really frustrating for him.  Sometimes he gets stuck in fnny places.  Like under the couch. 
But its not so bad if he has his binki handy.

Red Tube, Red Tube

Red tube, red tube, what do you see?  I see a little foot looking at me. 
 Little foot, little foot what do you see?  I see auburn hair looking at me. 
 Auburn hair, auburn hair, what do you see?  I see a little bum looking at me. 
 Little bum, little bum what do you see?  I see a tummy train looking at me. 
 Tummy train, tummy train, what do you see?  I see wiggly legs looking at me. 
 Wiggly legs, wiggly legs what do you see?  I see a back end looking at me!
 Back end, back end what do you see?  I see a messy face looking at me! 
 Obviously, he was having a great time in the tube, but he was less than pleased that Daddy was trying to take his picture!  He was far too busy for that kind of nonsense! 
 What did Malcom think of all this roughhousing? 
You could say he's a fan.

I want to be big!

Malcom LOVES it when we let him use Marshall's old booster seat for his meal.  He now eats rice or oatmeal cereal with apple juice and all kinds of pureed fruits and veggies.  Except sweet potatoes.  He eats them, but then there is a lot of puke later.  Weird.  And he won't take a bottle, but sometimes a sippy cup of watered down juice.  He wants to eat enything we do.  He also LOVES to steal the spoon! 
 And support the Seahawks, of course!
 See, so happy!

Just Like Pa

We all know Marshall wants to be my dad when he grows up . . . Pa is his very favorite person!  So Marshall has decided to paint.  He tried finger paints. 
 They were gooey and slimy. 
 And he thought they were funny!

 He likes tempa paint even better . . . all those fun brushes, stamps, and rollers!
 We are really excited because Marshall has some sensory problems and textures like pudding, sour cream, and paint really freaked him out.  When his specialists brought paint he tried it and then cried a lot until they put it away because he didn't like it.  That was just a day or two before this!
 We think his new food diet is helping a lot with his tactile sense. 
Painting is now one of his favorite things!

Happy Valentines Day!

Ok, so we're a little early, but Nana sent the boys some new board books to get them ready for Valentine's Day!  She sent Marshall "I Spy Little Valentine" and Malcom "I Love You Through and Through".  Marshall has claimed them both.  He's reading Malcom's book  in this series . . .

 Taking a break to watch "Curious George", his current favorite movie!

 As you can see, Marshall has recently decided to love his fire truck again.  We're excited for spring to come so we can bust out the tricycle!
Thanks, Nana!
