I love it when I can do an art project with J. He gets so excited and starts to squeal in anticipation if he sees my bag of paints. However with E walking and being more underfoot it has been hard to get time to do projects.

J loved getting all painted up and was disappointed when I washed him up. He wanted to keep going.
