Much of his day is spent playing with small cars or trains, so it seems his energy is stored up for outside play or athletics. He is our athlete - he's always loved footballs, basketballs, volleyballs - all of them. Last week, he found a volleyball our niece left here .... and decided it would be best put to use as a soccer ball. In the third picture, he is actually trying to dribble it like a basketball - it was adorable and I wish I'd have caught it on video. But the thing about boys in motion is that sometimes the motion is gone as quickly as it came.
Moose is my sweetheart - my mama's boy (although Squirt is in that stage, too). He loves his mama but I see the times a'changing as he clings more to his daddy. The good thing is that he will be able to do many things a lot of boys or men don't know how to do: change a tire as well as bake a cake, make a bed as well as change the oil, fix a fence as well as sweep floors. My boys are being taught well to take care of themselves and their future wives (lucky wives!). Case in point - helping Big A make our big bed.
If your boys are in motion, please link up at Home with the Boys!
And visit other mamas with energetic boys!
