Today, Liam "wrote" a story about dinosaurs (and by wrote, I mean dictated to me and I wrote down). Then, he asked me to "draw the dinosaurs in your pen, Mommy, and I will color them in!" He took his time studying the color of each dinosaur, and even captured the two-tone look of the (apparently completely made up by Jurassic Park and so doesn't have a name) side-wing dinosaur.
"Once Upon a Time, there was a red dinosaur named Stegosaurus. Stegosaurus eats lots of plants. When the giant dinosaur heard a stomping sound. It was a giant velociraptor that was stomping."
I can feel a Pulitzer. :)
I'm also including a photo of him (standing!) in the snow immediately after our "blizzard" this week. I don't think he has EVER had so much fun as he did leaping around in that fluffy, neck-deep wonderland!
Keep warm, friends! As I find time, I will tell more about his journey, how we ended up in the comfortable and settled (for now) place we are now, and what lies ahead for our little Monkey. Thank you for reading, and thank you for thinking of Liam, and of us, as you wonder what to do with all that expendable income you have lying around.
