I'll take it!
Later, the boys had a bath.
Jasper's imagination has really been on a roll lately. Sometime in the summer he started talking about how strong and fast his "robot muscles" are. At times he describes himself as being "spit-powered," as I cringe. I'm invited into the action occasionally as I'm called upon to "activate car powers" while driving. And there is a new superhero on the scene--Jasper sometimes refers to himself as "Rescue Center Jasper." It is no coincidence that the Island of Sodor (Thomas the Train) has a Search and Rescue Center.
Jasper calls our vacuum his "water mine" and he loves to point to the tubes and attachments while explaining where he used to do this with the pipes near the toilet, so the vacuum is a welcome replacement.
Construction trucks smoothing out roads is a major theme. This morning he was playing with his trucks as I crossed the room with a piece of paper. "Mom, I have to sign off on this road repair," he said. I thought it was so funny, I let him have a pencil and sign away.
As the end of the day approached, it was Joe's turn. He walked for the first time! Twice to Jack and once to me. It was very exciting and we are so proud of him.
