February is the month of Love but I'll be doing a week of Love.
Mally and Maxwell were over today and we made hearts with folded paper and then taped them to a string. Mally thought it was great. I made her hold the hearts up so long she got tired and started to ignore me and watched tv instead. I stood her in front of the patio doors and blew out the background. She was so cute in her pink sweater and fun multi-fabric skirt. Her hair is slowly growing back, it took 3 years to grow that hair and with her it might take 6 years to grow it back.
I had the kids hold candy hearts in their hands for me to take the picture but Maxwell had another agenda..... he was licking it as fast as I could pull his hand down and place it where I wanted it. I giggled so hard and he did it that much faster so finally if you can't win with a 1.5 year old you might as well join them.
Then I laid the heart on his leg and told him not to touch it until I said he could. I would slowly move my hand off the heart and he would start to grab for it. I said "no Max - no touch" and he would back off then I'd move and he'd start to grab. I was laughing so hard cuz I felt like I was training a puppy not to eat the treat until allowed. Somehow I think training a puppy would be easier than Max.
Happy Day 1 of Love Week
