Sweets for my sweet

Sometimes I say, "Little Elvis, there is no way that you can get any cuter. There just isn't. It's not possible."
My little boy sure does love to prove me wrong. Here a very happy boy is showing off his first sucker.

Little Elvis loved dumping all of the candy out our very full (only 10 trick-or-treaters!) candy bowl and then putting 5 or 6 pieces back in it. He usually stopped when he landed on a pineapple sucker. Since it was clear, I decided, "What the hey?"
Definitely worth it.
Here is a collection of items needed to go outside -- all assembled by an impatient Little Elvis while I wasted time cooking. There's his jacket, a pillow, my purse, his diaper bag and a shoe.
Once I removed the pillow -- which I think was just placed there for decoration -- I found my pair of shoes and two more of his! After all of that work, I just had to take him outside.
His love of cars continues to grow. And he's really getting into lining them up. You can see his new pink convertible in the front.

We went to a children's flea market last weekend. Family trips to baby sales may soon be a thing of the past. He wanted to play with EVERYTHING! One little girl tried to sell me a big Barbie van that Little Elvis was trying to tear apart, but I managed to pull him away before getting stuck with that monstrosity.

Then Bob took him to a Girl Scout booth at the back. Bob says Little Elvis spotted the convertible immediately but another child was playing with it. Our son eyed his prize until the other boy got tired of it, then pounced!

I think it was love at first sight. This little pink Polly Pocket convertible has doors that open, a steering wheel that moves, zebra striped carseats (that flip and change to stars with Ps in them!) and stickers of food all over it. There's a slice of pizza by the steering wheel, and two bags of fries on the trunk. Oh, and the trunk used to open. But, um, well, he IS a little boy.

Unlike the big red Clifford dog, this relationship has already lasted for 5 days. It goes with us just about everywhere. He's even tried to cuddle with it.

Santa is now on a search for a stuffed car.

Funny how little boys are so drawn to cars, ours loves them. I wonder if little girls are as interested in them too.

Definitely a cutie! I can relate to that whole "keeps getting cuter" thing!

Esme's got a few cars and doesn't like them at all. Maybe it would be different if they were pink Barbie cars. What is it with these kids?!

Those soft cars . . . their big and squishy and if you hit the front bumper they make noise.

They must be pretty soft 'cause J HAS snuggled with one . . .

SO cute. I love when they get attached to something and can't or won't leave it behind.

He sure is a sweet pea. Love how he was helping you get ready to go outside. Too cute!

I can't believe how big he is. Seriously! Zachy loves getting down on the floor, face on the floor so he can see the wheels turn on the car or truck or whatever. It's amazing how similar they all are, isn't it? LOL

I love how he put all that stuff by the door to tell you he wants to go out! Svara loves going out, too, but it's harder here with the heat every day :P She tries, though!
That's funny how he tries to cuddle with the car. I guess it's how they show their love!
