i love this kid.

My sweet, sweet Moses. He is such a cool kid...and I am not saying that just because I am his mom...but he is. He is thoughtful and sensitive...qualities that are too often extinguished in little boys...in our house we encourage and praise him for these things. :)
Of course he is also two and a half...and can go from sweet to nearly biting your hand off in a second. :)
He is also funny...sometimes we laugh when we shouldn't because he is just that funny...
He is also a little odd sometimes...notice the mittens on his hands...in June. He has a fascination with putting socks on his hands...I have no idea where he gets it from...the other day I pulled out some "hand sockies" for him...aka mittens.
Apparently they are a must for water golf.
He eventually soaked himself in the pool...repeatedly refusing my offers to get his bathing suit...
This is him dunking his head in the pool...
Then saying "aww man"...like it was not intentional.
This is him "falling" into the pool...
I did my best to stand back and let him have his fun...he was having a great adventure.
Eventually he plopped right down in it...and I said "hold it right there"...
It was nearly bath time anyway...I gave him some soap, stripped him and told him to scrub up. He thought it was fun until we rinsed it out of his hair. :)

I love being a mom of boys!

HA HA that is too funny washing in the pool, but what a better time to do it. We once washed my baby brother outside with the hose b/c he had a blow out and it was just easier that way :) And all my mom's kids have donned a bath in her shampoo bowls at work, b/c thats what hairdresser do. HE HE!! Have a great day!!

You are such an awesome mom to have him just go ahead and take a bath! The ultimate goal is to get clean right? Works for me! Love it!

Funny!!! I just wrote an eerily similar post today about my 19 mos old daughter on my family life blog. They are hilarious little people! I called my post, A Half Hour with the funniest person on Earth! Hate to see them grow!

So cute - glad you caught it all with the camera!

Sometimes I throw a nekkid Eli into the pool in lieu of a bath ... sshhh, don't tell.

It sounds like Jackson and Moses could be best friends! =) Love the bath in the pool idea. We'll definitely try that at some point this summer.

This is a cute French animated video and near the end, the girl and the beach animals but socks on their arms/hands. Moses might like it.

I love the mitts. I thought my son was the only one to do that. He uses socks on his hands when all his mitts are dirty from doing whatever it was he was doing in them all day!
Too cute.

I'm a mom to two boys as well and I think it's pretty cool too. Curious...my boys are 23 months apart, born Oct '06 and Sept '08. Yours look to be nearly the same, no? Not really my business or important info, just thought that I would ask.

Have a great Sunday!
