Valentine's Fun

For Valentine's this year, Ace made a scavenger hunt for Daddy. He spent Friday night coloring the clues that we hid all over the house. He is putting together words like a champ. You'll hear him say "color picture" and "help" in this video. Some nights, all we do is "color picture." He goes straight to the coloring books when we go to the gym and once the ladies have it in hand, he runs over to where he knows the colors are waiting.

Then, on Saturday morning he gave Daddy his first clue. They searched all over the house for the others and the entire time, Ace was saying "clue, clue."

Ace is also saying "I play" pretty much as soon as he wakes up. Before naps and nightime, he has to sing the "Night, Night" song to EVERYONE and even some animals: peacock, tiger, puppy dog and hippo are the main ones. Lately, he will lay on the floor and then say "help" as if he's in trouble so I've started calling him "Wolfie" whenever he does that (like crying "Wolf"). Every morning he'll tell you he wants waffles. He will also tell you he wants milk AND juice. Yesterday, he told me that he had on a "green shirt" and, by golly, he actually did.

What a smartie! He is so lovable and snuggable. I can't remember what I did with all of this love before he came along.
