We have a dentist play dough toy that makes tongues. Eli loves making all different colored tongues (note the stack of severed tongues). As usual we had to "make one for Daddy", after which he stated "Daddy likes tongue"!
Eli's obsession with tools continues. He plays in the yard: building, sanding, painting, sawing...... or so he says. He calls himself a worker guy, and if you ask him to come in he says "Sorry, I can't I'm busy working"!
Eli loves the neighbor's cat. This has to be one of the nicest cats I've ever met, she'll let Eli do anything to her. When he saw her outside yesterday he said "look Mom, my friend came to visit". He always wants to let her in, but Ben's allergic so she stays outside. They get along great, and go all around the yard together. She watched him dig in the gravel for an hour last week.
