The blue jumping guy

So, the day that we were coming home from South Carolina, we were driving on 95 and had to pull off at an exit in NE Philly. There was one of those huge, inflatable "jumping guys" as Asher now calls them...a blue one with flailing head and arms. A couple of days later, (actually, while I was working on my last blog post:) he told me he was going to "build something." I "engaged" him in conversation ( still staring at the computer and pretending to be very interested, like a good mom...) and asked, "oh yeah? what are you going to build?" To which he responded, "blue jumping guy." It took me a minute to figure out what he was talking about, since we hadn't mentioned him since we saw it and explained to him what it was. As Bela pointed out, the interesting thing about his "building" is that he had a point were he announced he had finished, it was something he really was working towards...all the while, attentive mom is on the internet...He proudly declared, "I did it!" I turned around and found this...

Am I just an in-love mommy or is this seriously cool?!


  1. you need to print & frame that last photo of his creation... i love the combo of the very eccentric structure + his little feet in the background.

  2. yes! Thank you! how great is the little toe curl?
