atticus
...
made a new bestie last weekend when kamilah made a little spontaneous visit to boston! it was love at first sight for him. not only did she win over his little heart by bringing donut holes, nutrigrain bars and OJ for breakfast but she also read to him from his sharks and trains books after which she pushed him in his stroller in the we-thought-it-was-warm-enough-to-take-a-walk-but-it-totally-wasn't weather. he was quite twitterpatted. thanks for the lovely visit, kdub!
...
and despite this picture he's been a happy little camper of late - quite smitten with his little brother (except for when he wants me to hold him, not beckett, which is all too often.) the other day beckett was crying in his crib and before i could get to him atticus had brought over his favorite blankie with which to comfort the wee lad. after a few seconds he decided that was a touch too generous and withdrew his favorite blankie only to return with his second favorite blankie as well as the pacifier to help out his brother. such sweet acts of brotherly kindness.

he also got a really terrible haircut (according to me) last week from darek...but to be fair it was to fix the really terrible haircut (accordning to darek) that i had given him the week before...


he's also recently figured out how to climb out of his crib. when he wakes up in the morning or from his nap he climbs out, plays in his room for a while then patiently (or impatiently depending on how long it take me) knocks on his door calling "mama?" until i come let him out. luckily it hasn't happened in the middle of the night yet but i do not doubt that it will be soon. i suppose it's time for a big boy bed for my big boy.
...
and he has begun to take his watercolor painting quite seriously


he loves checking on his brother in his little pack-n-play which currently resides in the kitchen. he asks to hold him and wants to touch his feet and kiss his head. makes my heart melt everytime. and he always says, "bless you!" when the baby (or anyone for that matter, including himself) sneezes. even if he has to yell it from the other room.
...
a couple mornings ago i was rocking beckett when i gave atticus his breakfast and atticus picked up a handful of scrambled eggs, cuddled them to his cheek and rocked them saying, "so cute!" which actually comes out "so toot!" i think that's my favorite atticus-ism this week. he's such a character!


and this little guy was five weeks old yesterday and is just as dreamy as they come!
