Fashion, toddler-style

Peter likes his clothing. He particularly likes his shirts and pajamas that have fun prints on them, like his shirt with a baseball and glove, his pair of socks with baseballs, soccer balls, and basketballs on them, or his pajamas with moose and trees. He doesn't usually ask for particular clothes, though sometimes he will request the previously mentioned pair of socks.

This morning was a weird one. First, I got paged about 5:30am to deal with an issue at work. By the time I got off the phone an hour later, Peter had been awake for a while, and Amy had gotten him dressed and asked him to go back to his room to play with his trains and cars (that's an important detail) until Kate and Sydney woke up. He came out periodically to ask Amy questions as she sat in the living room reading and praying, and each time he would go back into his room to play a little more. The last time he came out, I was back in the bedroom, and I heard him come out and say something to Amy. I couldn't hear what he said, but Amy's response was laughter, after which she told Peter to "go tell Dad what you just told me." So in comes Peter, probably not sure what my response would be or why Mommy laughed, and he comes over and says "I should have a vehicle shirt on." I said "oh, why, because you are playing with vehicles?" "Yeah," he said, and walked back to his room. "Good idea," I said, as he left.

I tried not to laugh until he was out of earshot.

Part of me wonders what 2 1/2 year-old even knows the word "vehicle"? The rest of me just thought it was so cute I had to record it somewhere...

i could seriously eat that boy up, so i can't even imagine how you feel about him.

a child that can bring you laughter that early in the morning is a blessing indeed!

glad you recorded it here for all of us to enjoy!

Hi Amy and Rollin,

Have been thinking about you guys so was so happy to see new posts when I checked in. First, having another BOY!! What a blessing. So happy for you.

I loved the Peter story. What a very intelligent, sweet little boy! He'll be able to teach his baby brother a lot. I'm sure all 3 are so excited and can't wait to meet their new brother.
