He has learned how to surf the web. Papa has installed some safety precautions, and we regularly hear the "bing" on Papa's cell phone alerting us when Jude has stolen away somewhere (usually behind a closed door in a end table) with Papa's tablet and is trying to make a purchase. Spider man movies and videos games are his favorites.
He still has to sleep with Conrad. And even though we've repaired him many times, Conrad continues to get holes. And is pretty ratty in general. I'm not sure he's going to survive another round with the washing machine. And I'm not sure Jude would accept a newer version of Conrad, although I'm pretty sure Build-a-Bear still sells them.
He knows how to operate NetFlix way better than me. It's scary.
He's all boy. He's pretty consumed with weapons and all superheros, but especially Spider Man and Ice Man. I have no idea who Ice Man is, except that Boo told me he's Spider Man's friend. According to Jude, Ice Man shoots ice out of his wrists or fingertips... I'm not sure which. And I guess this ultimately culminates in abducting bad guys, and securing world peace. And despite that we've never had gun-type toys in our home, he's almost always making gun sounds.
Left to his own, he'd be a vegetarian. The boy loves loves loves fruits and vegetables. Tell the boy we're having a salad for dinner, and he's seriously excited. Probably his favorite is tomatoes. He'll eat 2 at every sitting if I could keep that many in stock.
He's one of the shyest children I have. If approached when we're out and about, he'll pull his head in his shirt then bury his head in my leg. Thus his preschool teachers are still concerned about developing his vocabulary and language skills, which is pretty tough with a child that won't talk to you. At home, he's a chatter box. Seriously I can not shut him up.
He's asking questions. With Mazie's upcoming arrival, he's asking where he was before we came to get him and about the folks that cared for him. Questions I will never have the answers to. He's especially consumed with the man that is holding him in these pictures. He wants to know his name. I have to say again, that I don't know, but surely this man loved him. I know big questions are still to come. Why didn't we come sooner? How did he get there? And one of these days we will surely run into a pregnant lady, and his wheels will start turning.
