Because I love Mommy and Daddy

A while back Kelton was playing with my wedding ring and I explained to him that I wear it because I love Mommy. And similar for Mommy's ring. Well, today he went and found a rubber washer and put it on his finger, and told us he did it because he loves Mommy and Daddy. I guess he didn't want to be left out!

Boo-boo patch

You know those cold gel packs they make to keep swelling down? Well, we have one for Kelton as you might expect. The thing is, he won't let us put it on the actual boo-boo. It scares him too much.

But that doesn't mean he doesn't like it. In fact, every time he hurts himself, he calls out for "boo-boo patch" between sobs. We go to the freezer and retrieve it, and he clutches it like a security blanket. Sometimes he'll go get it from the freezer himself, and even put it back once the tears are dry.

You never know what he's going to do in front of the camera, though, and in this rare case he put the patch on the actual boo-boo -- he'd bitten his tongue.

Cock-a-doodle-doo Slide

Cock-a-doodle-doo slide is a fun, twisty, enclosed slide in "Amit's Park", and it's especially fun since Daddy calls "cock-a-doodle-doo" from the bottom while Kelton is sliding down.

Sliding down with Mommy:

... then climbing back up:

... and then back home, practicing face-first sliding:
