In the meantime, he is still very intrigued by his gears (and discovered an entire bucket of them in his closet), but today, Shawn took him to The Lego Store to purchase his first set of Legos (fittingly on the 50th birthday of Legos!). Shawn said that the store was full of dads with their kids, likely because most schools were closed today due to snow and lots of people played hookie around here. Apparently, school buses can't maneuver the white stuff, but our city's plethora of SUV's can make it to the mall with no problem!
So, with his new Legos and bucket o' gears, he is a happy camper. I can tell it's definitely time to get him in school because he desperately wants to share them with his BFF, Polli, but doesn't understand that we don't want her to chew on them. I think he was confused about why it was OK to share with his new friend during their playdate, but can't share with Polli... even more perplexing is that we let him share some toys with her, but not all. Poor kid. He needs more human playmates!
He also fell in love with a piece of exercise equipment I recently ordered, which is simply a wheel with handles attached. He loves anything with wheels, so I might have to fight him for it. He carried it around the living room for much of the evening.
Ian loves his gears...I love his eyebrows.
Gears and Legos...The perfect marriage (he's waving 'hi')
Notice that half of this Lego stack has wheels.
Ian with my "ab wheel".... And I just noticed that it might be time to donate those pants!
This shows how much alike Polli and Ian have become... Here, Ian stands like Polli and Polli stands like Ian. Ian is also dressed exactly like Polli's pillow. That was a scary coincidence!
