art lover?

I'm not sure if Daniel likes drawing with crayons, but I know for sure he likes to chew and suck on them. That's the way he is with just about everything: rocks, leaves, dangling appliance plugs, Kleenex, used candy wrappers. Sometimes at the playground, I pop a pacifier in his mouth because otherwise he tries to eat the sand. He loves to walk around the house with a toothbrush hanging from his mouth ... and hey, I'm not going to discourage that. I try to make a game out of helping him distinguish between "yummy" and "yucky." I know he gets it, but sometimes he puts "yucky" in his mouth anyway, makes the "yucky" face, and laughs.

It's been a while since I've posted anything here. It's not for a lack of anything on my mind — I've had a lot on my mind lately, but I just haven't found the time to pull my thoughts together to write anything. I can't now, either, because Daniel just woke up (early) from his nap.

Looks like Graycen. Always has something in her mouth. She also loves to walk around with her toothbrush in her mouth and I let her do it, too. Hey - we also have the Winnie the Pooh ride on thing. Graycen got it for her birthday. Since there is no on/off switch, I had to put tape over the speaker - it is OBNOXIOUSLY loud.

Whatever you can do to encourage that dental hygiene, go for it. I am still going to blame bad genes on all my cavities, but less sugar and more flossing/brushing probably would have gone a long way.

I was wondering where you were ... you're such a regular poster. My problem is usually the same, no time to sit down and write. And also the blogger uploading my ridiculously hi-res photos.

At least you won't have a cigar hanging out of Daniel's mouth! We have a classic photo of my brother with a LIT cigar and loving it. Wow, 2007 and 1974 are so different.
Love you, miss you.

Daniel is getting sooo cute! In the bottom pic, he looks like one of those 1930's Hollywood kid actors, in a movie portraying a street kid with a cigarette in his mouth.
