PSF - cars!

My son Jack loves cars. He fell in love with them right around age 2. In fact, motorized vehicles and anything John Deere are his favorite things even today. When he was about two he started to collect them. Well, actually, he didn't collect them as much as people knew of his great love for cars and just couldn't seem to come visit him without bringing him cars or take him somewhere without letting him get a new one. Really, could you resist this face?
He would spend all day racing his cars, organizing them according to color, or make, or model, parking them in amazingly organized "parking lots". He would make "caw-ca-wree-ers" (car carriers) by stacking one car on the top of the other.
Here is a car carrier up close.


We also started making shapes with our cars. (That's Melody in the bumbo around 3 or 4 months of age.)

The other day Jack was sharing his cars with Melody, (shocker, I know) and apparently the love of cars is genetic. She said to me, "Look, Mama! I fix da cahs!" I looked over and...yes, car organization had started. She has been obsessed with organzing her cars by color ever since. At least today she was doing it wearing her Princess Aurora dress! With this kind of influence on Charlie I can only imagine the cars that are in my future!

Awww...sharing hobbies and toys. So sweet.

I'm sure Charlie will be wearing a Prince Charming costume while playing with his cars!

Call me crazy, but I love it when kids obsess about things.

Pam said...

That is SO funny. Jack is really meticulous about his cars. And the car carriers...that's genius!

Lauren said...

I think it is so funny that the cars are always perfectly straight! Jack and Libby are going to have the most immaculate house someday!

That is awesome! I love the photos of jack laying in front of them. And making things out of the, like the house, that's cool too! Great ideas! It's got to be wonderful that they already have a common interest at such a young age. Maybe they will go into business together. lol!

What fun! Like the double deckers!

Kelli said...

Cute!! My boys love cars too!! The car carriers were really funny!! And I loved the house...I never thought of making shapes with cars, my boys always make 'parking lots'. I didn't realize how similar your kiddos look to each other until I saw that first picture of Jack...it looks just like Melody!

I'm telling you - my guy and your guy would be BEST of pals. Mine is a nutter for all things with wheels too!

What a brilliant way to make a photo. Colour coordinating them and making pictures out of them. Very imaginative.

My grandsons were mad about trains! They still are , really.

Kids and cars! love your stories!

Your son and mine would get along great! At least, I guess, as long as they didn't have to share cars. :) So cute to see both your kids playing with them. We've also done the "car rainbow" and I was actually thinking about blogging that!
