There are so many little things Jet does that make me smile and say "could he be any cuter?" And there are even more things that make me shake my head and say "could he be any more of a little BOY?" Jet is a "boy's boy" from his instinctive desire to growl and clinch his fists at me when he's angry right down to his appreciation of all things noisy and messy. Aside from his deep love for "The Princess and the Frog" which might be deemed more of a chick-flick in kiddie world - he is all snakes, snails and puppy-dog tails. And in this tradition he has a strong devotion to his cars. He has a dump truck and a cement truck to be exact - and he loves them both. They were the only "baby friendly" cars I could find that didn't have tiny little swallowable pieces and now that he has learned how they move - boy oh boy - he's in love. He scoots them all around the house (once again the hardwood floors are in his favor) and will go on like this for an hour.
It's hilarious. It's adorable. It's such a boy thing to do.
I love it.
In correlation with October being Spina Bifida Awareness month, some speical friends of ours -Leigh and Andy Gibbs (Grey's parents) - have designed a T-shirt to honor our little SB heros. :)
The line down the back is representative of the spine and the words really express what it's like to live with Spina Bifida - and what it means to us. I think it is perfect and a great way to spread the word about SB. Another friend of ours, Kari (Toby's mom and originator of The Journey blog) has made the T-shirt available to order HERE at her buisness blog urbanupcycling.com. I can't wait to have ours and get a family picture of the 3 of us wearing our matching t's.
The T-shirts are 13$ and are available in kids and adult sizes.
They will be only be on sale until October 13th so don't wait! Order now and help raise Spina Bifida Awareness! :)
