The Many Faces of Silas Jair

What might Silas be when he grows up?





Construction worker?

Or maybe he'll just sing for the village people!

Guitar Balance

Sometimes Silas just does something silly.
In this case, Silas was playing with my cheap guitar (he is not allowed to touch my Taylor) and accidentally made it stand on end.
We are such proud parents!

Colin Buchanan Concert.

Silas loves Colin.

Before the show, Silas was playing with the other kids.

Or no... he was actually wanting to read his book.

Once inside, he was excited.

 Here's Colin

Silas sings along

 What a fun day.

In preperation for our Hawaii trip, we made a sand croc.
It also helps for Silas to be wearing a croc T-shirt.

Blow Dry

I had to be very careful in camera angles here.

Silas loves to blow dry his own hair.

Silas has a life threatening allergy to peanuts and a less severe allergy to walnuts.

He was exposed to a pesto sauce that normally contains pine nuts, but this time was made with walnuts.  It was a bit of a scare.

His lips were swollen and cheeks turned very red with bumps and welts.

He told us the pizza tasted "spicy," so he knew something was different.

We spent several hours at the hospital to get him checked out.

 This time he was ok.  Praise God.
Thumbs up.

Silas Playing Music

Every few months, we have a music night at the church.
Silas loves to come along and play various instruments.

Here are a few snippets of him playing his piano.

Helping Reogranise The Bedroom

Silas decided to help Mama with his organisation skills.
It is much easier to access things when the clothes are out of the drawers.

We'll keep one drawer full of miscellaneous items.

Easy access to everything.

Mum was so gracious.

He is so good at it.

Train Ride to the Shops

What started out as Silas' first train ride since he was in a pram ended up in a bit of an EMERGENCY.

Thumbs up!

Now face the camera Silas.

 The EMERGENCY was due to the little orange button
behind them.  Silas just had to push it and a very rude
man demanded that we better not touch it again. Ooops

Just strolling through the shops with our hands in our pockets.

Construction Workers

I came home to an odd sight.

 This is dedication.

Silas and Mum doing construction work.

At least they are being safe.

Always wear your safety goggles!

Brushing Teeth

Growing up way too fast.

I wonder how long before the novelty wears off?

Silas loves the sand.

He really likes it when Papa makes a castle.

"May I destroy it now Papa?"

Fire Station Visit #1

We took Silas to an open house at a local fire station.
We were able to get a bunch of great photos.
He is yelling in mum's ear, "Fire, get out of the building!"

Here is the cool fire truck.

Silas begins his inspection.

I'm glad they have all these levers turned off.

What a great looking fireman.

They even let him spray the hose.

Well done.  Thanks for not shooting Papa.

And a little video
