Stinky Chicken

Some chickens visited preschool yesterday. I guess one of them decided to poop and Thane called it a "stinky chicken" repeatedly. I think it is funny, but at the same time it draws my attention to the fact that he repeats himself a lot and I am not sure it is fully acknowledged by his therapists. During DT on Monday he kept repeating "I don't swim." He wanted to swim, but it has been a cold July and our pool has been giving us fits.

He did get to swim today, and I took 594 photos of the guys in the pool. Unfortunately, I missed the best picture . . . I blew up an inflatable duck ring for young children after having chosen a duck since Thane adores them. Thane whipped off his diaper, wrapped the duck around his middle, and started running around the living room saying "I don't swim. I don't swim." I blew up a yellow swim boat and then he was running around naked with a duck around his waist and a boat in his hand repeating "I don't swim." He was so excited to go swimming. It's hard not to be charmed by his enthusiasm.

I also found it cute that he decided to hoard pool toys. Check out this face . . .

We also got a taste of what the teenage years with Braeden might be like.

These pictures were taken at near 8 p.m., hence the iffy lighting.

Wow! 594 pictures?! :) See, my problem is that if I take that many photos I have to EDIT that many photos. I'm a bit anal about nitpicky things though like skin tone and "would this photo look better cropped?" I drive myself crazy!

I enjoy hearing about Thane's antics. His vocabulary is really coming along isn't it?

LOL! I have to say that I am playing with the fact that I can take a bunch of pictures one after the other because that is a big change. I see I can't do as quick with a flash -- but I might have to dig out my hot shoe one and try it.

I tend to only select ones I like to edit and play with, and I am not as sophisticated as you are on that (I was thinking I should have you photoshop me, hahaha . . . I always want to Squizz myself thin!).

You'll appreciate this . . . I decided to get the Rebel in silver because my other similarly shaped cameras are black and I wanted to easily spot the difference when grabbing one off my desk. Thane looked at it today and announced that it is my "space camera."

LOL! I love your logic behind choosing silver over the black. Now that's using your noggin!

Hmm, I wonder if I could turn 'squizzing' people thinner in photos into a business...
