Right of Passage

I am interrupting our regularly scheduled blogging to give you this darling photo.

You get a two-for-one with this picture. A shot of his new hairdo (SO cute, I think) and his choo-choo. Click on it to make it larger (if you can stomach the nastiness on his face, hands and tray).

There comes a time in most boys' lives when they make a train out of their food. For Sambo it happened tonight and we were overjoyed. He even pointed to it proudly and said, "choo choo."

Sambo doesn't really talk and isn't the problem-solver that his brother was (and is), so we worry about him sometimes. It's hard for us to know what "normal" is. We have two kids at opposite ends of the spectrum in all developmental areas, so most of the time we're just hoping these kids turn out OK.

Today we learned that Sambo is will make it just fine in life. All on his own he did what millions of other kids have done with their food. What a relief.
