transformers...and play-doh

Sam has been dreaming about this Lego transformer for a few weeks. (20 days, to be more precise...because he had to earn 20 bedtime stickers to get it). And then once he got it, no one had time to help him put it together. So, last week, when Henry took one of his all too rare miraculous naps, we put it together. It would probably have been more practical to cross something off my to-do list, like taking a shower or making lunch, but oh, well. You gotta make hay while the sun shines and the baby sleeps.
Now, I've never really been into Legos and this guy came with a 20 page instruction booklet. Gulp. And, Sam spent most of the time ogling all of the other new transformers on the box instead of helping me decipher where these tiny little parts go.
But we got-er-done.
This guy can shoot a ball from one hand and slice you with a sword at the same time. It doesn't get any more awesome than this, people.

Natalie played with play-doh, making us all birthday cakes with toothpick candles, while I searched through tiny little Lego pieces. She was very patient during this hour long project.

And then Henry woke up...and we were back to life with three kids.
