Day 22: Slater

We are super thankful for our artist/Lego engineer/part-time superhero Slater. He's a crazy kid with waay too much energy, but when he sits down with pencil and paper or a box of Legos, he can also focus on one thing for a surprisingly long time. He has been trying to convince me (Brian) that what I would really like for my next birthday is Legos. I'm thinking he would be more that willing to help daddy play with his new toys....

When he's not doing that, he's normally bouncing off the walls, and thinking up some new mischief with his doppelganger Leif. It is becoming more and more interesting (and funny) listening to their conversations...about everything from rocket boots to snow in America to what they want for Christmas. They really are twins.
Slater is also getting better at riding his big sister's bike. Anything that goes fast is always a good idea in our house.
Sometimes, it seems like he really is a superhero, but his alter-ego is anything but mild-mannered...
We love our Slater-boy---Here he is with his recently super-glued forehead and yet another drawing. He has grown up so much in the last year, but sometimes, he is still our cute little blue-eyed boy who wants to cuddle. We're trying to enjoy that while we can, because we'll blink and it'll be soo uncool to be seen hugging mommy or daddy.

Love you Slater!  We are so thankful for you!
