Red Icy Day

It was Kaden and I the other day just hanging out. I was trying to stay out of the sun and he was making his "rounds". First he played with his trucks and cars. Then her organized all the buckets, trash and various rocks. Then he wants to water the plants, which usually turns into him playing in the watering cans. And then the dogs get their exercise by rolling around with him and playing "come here horsey". I just snap pictures left and right. I enjoy watching him play, eat, sleep, even breath. He's like a 40 year old man. He would be perfect behind a tv camera, because he doesn't even flinch when someones following him around. He doesn't stop what he's doing, show extra"look at me" emotion, nothing. He just goes about what he was doing, like you aren't even there.

So, after about an hour or so, he says I need an icy. I get up, to see what he's gonna do. I'm wondering if he even knows how to get them.

Duhhhhhh! He peals back one of them and decides "no, he no want dis one". Peals back another and finds the right color.....Red!

I think I'll take a rest on this wall here for a minute.
After heavily debating his next move he decides on a brief walk around the yard. Just in case he drops any Macy decides to walk closely beside him. Rocco is hidden under some shade. Rocco doesn't like the "red icy", Kaden says.
Kaden is growing so fast, all kids do. I'm thrilled I get to watch it all happen, one Red Icy at a time.

    I was trying to get more info about LES and I found your blog (for luck)...
    Let me tell you (in my "bad english" sorry)that it has been inspirational for me. In a day like today, when I feel weak,in pain, desperate, wondering about the future and why me Lord? You a beautiful stranger gave me a gift:corage and love for the life.
    I don't know you but I'm proud of you.
    Thank you for sharing your history.
    Blessings to your family!

  3. I guess Kaden knows that red icy tastes better. What a cute little guy you have. It must be fun to see life through his eyes.
