Capes, guitars and lost teeth

The boys are so funny. I like spending time with them one-on-one. Little Elvis and Cheese Puff like my company. Baby Plum prefers his Daddy. He lets me know this.

Last week, Bob took the older boys on a camping trip. Cheese Puff and I got to play and be alone together.
He wore Baby Plum's favorite shirt all day. We played with big plastic spoons, because who needs real toys? And we danced and sang. We also "read" books. He's fun to read to. He likes certain points on pages,  but typically gets tired and closes the book, saying, "Good book!"
He wore Baby Plum's cape on another day. We played with Baby Plum's keyboard and danced and sang. He's a music fan.
It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Cheese Puff!
Baby Plum also loves music. We took him to McDonalds after a recent dentist's appointment. This McDonalds had a huge Elvis timeline banner, and this decorative guitar. He wanted his picture taken. He did a great job at the dentist. He's been before, and he knows what he needs to do. The technician was so impressed with him. Cheese Puff also sat in the chair, but he wasn't forthcoming with his teeth.
Speaking of teeth, Little Elvis lost another tooth! I pulled this one, because I didn't want him to swallow another one. He was so brave! I wanted to pull the tooth before they went camping. He worked hard loosening it the day before they left. That night, he reminded me. Bob got me a paper towel, and it easily popped out. There was a little blood, but he was fine with it. He thought it was cool, and handled it so well. I was surprised.

They did a great job camping, and all had a good time.
Here Little Elvis is running from me as I try to take a picture of him pitching a fit. He's upset that his reindeer, Rodney, fell in the dirt. We've been trying to make him laugh and see how silly his fits are. I thought this would work, but it didn't. Will try something else next time.
