Today was a nice relaxing day with the boy and I. We didn't do much but we did spend some quality time together. A few of my favorite moments were:
  • John being a snuggle bunny today, so there was a lot of reading and laying around watching Elmo
  • John figuring out he can suck on his toes. He hadn't done this since he was a newborn so it was funny to see him revisit it. (he was on my lap so I couldn't get a picture)
  • John laying across me in our orange chair, with his feet propped up and crossed.
  • John wanting to dance but only if we were holding hands and going around in circles.
We got John a new book today about being a big brother. It wasn't the one that I went looking for, but it is a good one and I am excited for us to read it together.

John is a little young for this book but I love it. I knew that a few of the teachers have read it and use it in their classrooms. If you have never read should. It is about how everyone has a carries around an invisible bucket and it holds our feelings. You can either be a bucket filler or a bucket dipper. The jist of it is that you should be filling people's buckets with compliments and good gestures. I am going to use it in my classroom, but I am also going to use it at home. I am currently looking for cute decorated bucket ideas so that we can have them in our house.

We got Trey the same big brother book. He thinks the entire book is written just about him. I will have to check out the bucket book. I am a sucker for a good kids book.
