Thane continues to entertain us . . . we went away for the weekend and the boys were playing in a field at Schoodic Point. Braeden was pretending to be a lion in chase of prey, and little Thane was running away shouting “No dragon! No!” I think he gets this pretend thing pretty well for a kid who isn’t even three yet.
Thane has a new speech thing he is doing with /le/ and /la/ sounds. He asked for a “lelelelelapop” today, meaning a lollipop, and Dave told him no. A little while later he stood in front of the drawer that houses the lollipops . . .
“Lelelelelapops? Oh lelelelelapops? Where are you lelelapop?
“Oh look! A lelelelapop!
“Lelelapop? How are you lelelapop?
“Lelelelelapop . . .
“I like lelelelelelapop!”
Yes, it worked. He got the lollipop he wanted by being so cute!
Our trip this weekend was to check out property for a possible camp. The picture of Braeden below is from the first place he actually asked whether we were going to actually buy a piece of land – he rather liked this piece, but we’re totally on the fence still. The lighthouse pic is just a very "Maine" photo, so I thought I would post it too.
