Super Dex!!

Tia bought Dex a cape and brought it with her to give him this weekend while she was here.  She had been asking me if he'd like it, and I kept telling her he would love it, but even I wasn't prepared for his reaction when he opened his present!  He barely had it out of the wrapping paper before he yelled "A Superhero Shirt!!", jumped off the ground, clapped his hands and squeaked with joy!  It was one of the most precious things I've ever seen... no exaggeration!

I wanted to get some pictures of him with his cape (without our neighborhood in the background), so we went back out to the train tracks, because I knew at least he would think we were going somewhere cool, and not just going to take pictures, lest he decide to run from the camera.  Since we were going to the tracks, he also had to bring his two new trains that Uncle Blake's "Mommy and Daddy" gave him this weekend, as well.  (SPOILED MUCH??!)   :)

Which leads me to add... I can't tell you how blessed we are and how blessed we FEEL to have everyone in our lives who is a part of it.  People that go out of their way to be kind to us, and to Dex especially, just warm my heart, and I love and appreciate each and every one of you!

Being goofy for the camera!

And in case you wondered why the cape was slightly wrinkled by Sunday afternoon...

He has to sleep with it every time he gets in bed (along with his trains, as you can see!) :)
