had his 10th birthday!
That means all my kids are in double digits now. Life altering in and of itself.
Here he was almost two.
He loved those chocolate pudding cups, and would put them up to his mouth and lick out as much as he could at the end. That's what you see around his mouth and between his eyes — the squarish outline of the pudding cup.
He also has his zip-up pajamas on backwards. We put them on the right way originally, until one morning in his bed he was screaming. Chatty ran in to check on him, and he'd unzipped and rezipped himself up. He had a just a little pinch, but I know it would have hurt. From then on we put them on backwards because we knew he'd do it again.
The reason he could wear them backwards — they didn't have feet. We tried some hand-me-down pajamas from Buddy that had feet. Caboose must have outgrown sleepers and worn summer pajamas, and then by the time winter rolled around and we put the footed pajamas on him he flipped. That's actually putting it kindly. He looked at his feet like something foreign was growing there suddenly, all while screaming and trying to figure out how to get them off. He's never had a footed pair of pajamas since.
But he loves hats! The crazier the better.
We call him Cupcake at home.
