"O"

On Monday in the midst of this crazy spring/winter weather, we had a thunder storm. And this is when we found out: Dawson is very very afraid of thunder. He was standing at the window ledge playing with his cars and thunder rumbled. Immediately he started to scream, cry and run to the kitchen. I was in the living rom with him doing my walk away the pounds workout, so I was thinking, "what's in the kitchen that's more comforting than mommy?!" (for me, that would be food!). So I ran and scooped him up and he calmed down. But here's the thing. Have you ever heard the loudness of a Harley Davidson motorcycle come barreling down your street on any given day? Because it's loud. Louder than distant thunder. And yet when Dawson hears that, he runs to the window ledge shouting "Mommy! Momo!" So I tried explaining this to him. Didn't work...

In other Dawson news...

He has just started this new thing where he says "Mommy! Watch this!" or "Mommy! Look at me!". I busted up laughing the first time he said it. He was laying on the changing table and he said " mommy, watch this" and proceeded to make an "O" with his mouth. I have no clue where he came up with that. From that point on I've tried desperately to get him to do it again which is the reason for the following pictures and video clips.

Jason and I have been trying to teach Dawson to pray with us at our meals. He grabs our hands, bows his head and repeats what Jason says. Though he can't quite grasp the idea of closing his eyes. He bows his head and squints to look up at us and watch what we do. And of course I think it's so adorable that I captured it on video.

To close... Why does Jason think it's so funny to put boxes on Dawson's head?

Oh. I see.
