and grapes! the grapes were a little big for him so i offered to cut them for him. he pulled up a stool to watch. i told him he could as long as he watched nicely without touching anything or bumping me since i had a knife. he said, "don't touch the knife." yes. as i put them into his cup, he says to me: "thank you for putting in my cup!" how sweet, i love when he says things like that. i didn't know that baba had heard from around the corner, he walked in saying, "aww, now how can you not love that?"
"i want to draw."
he asked me to draw him a police car and then another police car. he had a great time coloring over it.
"i want to help." nj kept piling his clothes onto my lap from the laundry basket. that's not helping! i paused before getting frustrated and instead asked him to dig in the basket for his underwear. so he had fun going through trying to find them one by one. he'd say there's no more and i'd shift some clothes around and tell him to look again. i love how he loves to help, i just need to figure out how to let him help.
"i want to play my cars." he didn't eat much at grandma's again, so i fried up an egg with some onion and green peppers and put it with rice. he ate that, thank goodness. he doesn't eat much anymore unless it's something that he really likes. like cereal, snacks, or any asian food. before dinner i asks him if he wanted milk. he said, "with cereal." not with cereal for dinner, just milk. anytime i said the word milk he'd follow it with: "with cereal." who knew he'd love cereal that much! if only there was meat in it, i can always add fruit, but not a very nutritious meal (for dinner at least). well, cleaning up after dinner, i looked in the other room and there's his cars all lined up. typical nj.

we had a gift exchange of sorts. we found something cute and sweet for ah-ma (grandma) for her kitchen since she loves to cook. and we got lots of great gifts from their recent travels. it's always nice when they think of us, especially little nj.
