Judah has entered the delightful "no!" phase of toddlerhood. When he's not feeling it, it's no to everything except those things where it's an adamant "I don't want it!" We've learned to ignore this annoying behavior lest he think he's the boss. That is when we aren't able to tease him back into my sweet snuggly Judah. Most of the time he's delightful although it could be we are just better equiped at raising our second headstrong Leo.
Here's a successful effort on Ben's part!

On the way to get flowers

Saida had to wear my hat, while hilina chose the sidewalk chalk box to use as a purse. They love to accessorize.

New and improved fire escape.

The girls picked out petunias for their window boxes. Judah tried to help with the planting but dropped his shovel 2 stories down and almost hit someone.

We've started just bathing him in dirt. Seems simpler that way. You should have seen all the dirt that came out of his diaper that day.
