On Monday, we went to the post office to mail a box and there was a boy there who was Sean and Luke's age. He came over to us and the three of them sized eachother up and Luke said, "Mommy, he have Sean's shoes!" Sure enough -- blue crocs. They continued to stare at eachother and their shoes. Then Luke launched into an elaborate display of "drop the hippo to show off to the new kid" and I told Sean to say hello.
He very calmly said, "I'm Sean. This is Luke. And this is Mommy." Then he touched his head and lifted off a pretend hat and said, "Pleased to meet you!" with a very inviting smile. The kid was too fascinated with Luke's display to notice, but I noticed and I think I'll find something else to worry about.

Daddy gets the first appearance of ears on the side of the head. (It took 2 drawings for him to figure that out.) Daddy has a coat and a hat and a balloon.
Sean's giant smile looks just like him. Sean gets hands, feet and a "bus" to play with.
The second portrait he drew, and the ears are next to the eyes, like Mommy's. Luke's hair goes all the way around his head, because he totally needs a haircut. "Daddy? Hello?"
I don't know what to say, Clint. You get a hat, hair, nostrils, and fingers that start on the right hand and just keep going, which is Luke's signature move. Still, I get the feeling he knows something the rest of us only suspect...

He was holding a blueberry -- with a tiny little curved blueberry stem still attached -- up to his mouth and pretending to drink through the stem like a straw.
Another mystery solved!
