The dog and cat...together

One of Evan's most treasured toys are a couple of pieces from one of his wooden puzzles. He loves to play with the dog and the cat pieces, and he will take them all over the house (and around town on errands). They are great for banging together like cymbals, or on the TV screen, walls, name it.

Evan is kind of OCD about it, too. Jeremy has also realized that the dog has to be in Evan's right hand and the cat in his left hand. If you try to give one t his "wrong" hand, he'll reach across with the other hand, or push it away completely.

In case this is just a passing phase, I wanted to get some pictures of Evan, the dog, and the cat...playing all together.

Grandma was doing her lesson plans for the week and decided to check my favorite site. I was not disappointed to find that cute face along with some favorite toys to brighten this gloomy afternoon. Tell Mommy not to worry, because some favorite things, stay favorite things for a long, long time and past that even.

I love it! You can tell the dog has had some TLC around his ear. I think it is so funny how our boys cling to certain toys and snuggle up with them like they are a soft and warm teddy bear... but they aren't.

How cute, Evan! We can definitely relate to your OCD with the puzzle pieces--and the chewing on the corner of the doggie, too! :-)
