Ian made out like a bandit at the doctor today: a sheet of stickers, a pencil, and a Mickey Mouse surgical mask to go with the doctor kit he brought. (Taken with instagram)

Ian busted out with this Play-doh crab. I thought Play-doh was just for rolling and mixing to make weird colors.
Using his toys for their intended purpose again. We’re at the vet with Lexi. He gave her a full exam, complete with four shots. (Taken with picplz.)
Ian has always played independently very well. He also uses toys for their intended purposes. He was never one of those kids who wanted to play with pots and pans or slobber all over my cell phone. I suppose it could seem like he’s unimaginative in how he uses his toys, but I love to watch and listen to him play. He’s constantly talking and making believe, all while enjoying his toys and not having to be entertained 24/7. Yes, I am flat-out bragging. I love that he sits and plays toys rather than whining or needing electronics all the time. I cherish every minute of this time.
In his “carpool”. (his words) with all his Pooh friends…and the Dirt Devil.
Ian is playing Star Wars action figures: Yoda v. Darth Vader. They started out fighting, but then Yoda got hurt.
Darth Vader: Are you okay? Yes or no.
Yoda: Yes. I hurt my ear
Darth Vader: Oh. (kisses Yoda’s ear). There you go.
Darth Vader: You’re welcome.
Now, they’re back to being enemies.
Darth Vader: You better run! I’m gonna throw you in that cave.
