Ok, I'm running out of my own skills so this week I will feature Limelet #3. On Tuesday I mentioned his love of all things creepy crawly. From before he even turned 3 he could catch a cricket or grasshopper by the back leg. I watched him do it several times and it amazed me how such a little guy could so patiently stalk a bug, sneak up on it from behind, and grab it so quickly, yet not hurt it. (We do catch and release...no crawlies were harmed in the shooting of this HNT.)
So this week, I present Limelet #3's skilled hands. They're dirty, leave prints all over things, and nail-bitten (all of which just adds to their charm). They are also, gentle, helpful, and strong. My favorite is when he slips one hand in mine and we can trade the three squeezes that mean 'I love you.' He is always so happy to show me what he catches with them. How can I not enjoy that with him?
