Does this look like a happy face?

After Ethan finished eating Sunday dinner today, I told him to go to the bathroom to wash his face and hands. As usual, he spent quite a while standing on the foot stool in the bathroom, washing his hands...I thought. While he usually loves to fill the entire sink up with sudsy water and play with the bubbles, today he was studying his expressions in the mirror.

He came out of the room and said, "Mom, does this look like a happy face?" (He made a really mean face.) I said, "No."

Then he said, "Does this look like a happy face?" (This time it was a straight serious face.) I said, "No" again.

Then he said, "Does this look like a happy face?" (This time it was a HUGE smile.)

It was so cute! I could just see his little wheels turning as he was practicing that in the mirror. So I said, "Ethan, we need to take a picture of you doing that."

Here's what we came up with...he could not quit laughing then, so the facial expressions are not quite the same.

We got one serious face.
Trying not to smile made him laugh even more...
A little more serious...
His sweet face...

More laughing...
Trying to be serious...

It's all over now...he couldn't quit laughing.
I absolutely love watching him think and learn. He pays attention to everything. During lunch, we asked him what he learned in Sunday School today, and he said, “God made the animals.” Then he said, “and God made Evan, and me, and you!” It was so cute!
