Special Deliveries!

Yesterday was a fun day for my little one.  The mailman (err....lady) has been dropping off packages addressed to Eli left and right.  How exciting!  I have to admit to holding on to one package for a few days.  I wanted to get pictures when he opened the box.

So selfish of me, I know.  

However, if I hadn't done that, you wouldn't be able to share his joy through this post.  Both packages were totally unexpected and both pleased him immensely.

Eli opened this package first and transformed into Captain Eli.

Pretty sweet, huh?

His very own super hero cape!  Power Capes makes custom designed super hero capes.  Kids with Congenital Heart Disease can request a cape at no charge.  Did you see the 'Heart Heroes' patch?  Sort of like being a part of the Avengers or something---his very own super hero league, if you will.

I asked for a super hero pose:


Here's the back:

("E" for Eyijah.)  He's been calling himself Elijah lately.

Isn't this cape the cutest???  It is very well made and you can't really tell in the photo, but the big blue "E" is sparkly.

Anyone can purchase a Power Cape.  You can also make a donation to cover the cost of a Heart Hero cape.

After we finished posing for these photos, I pulled a surprise package from the porch.

He was intrigued.

And excited...

Downright mesmerized...

And.....then.... I lost him.

Of course, we had to build a knight immediately.  He was surprisingly capable.  And still so excited---he was practically bubbling with excitement.  

Look at that face!

This morning, he attempted this one totally on his own.

Whoa, buddy.  That is one seriously long leg!   :o)

I think he did an amazing job on his first solo Lego build.  Most importantly, so does he.
I saw him kissing this box AND this knight.  (He will probably kill me for this in a couple of years.)

SO happy.

He also shared the fun with his brother.  THAT was awesome.

A special thanks to Eli T. from Rhode Island for supplying my Eli with his first real Lego sets.  He is still playing with his mutant creation pictured above.

A special thanks to Power Capes and St. Charles Borromeo's 2012 Vacation Bible School children from Omaha, NE, who lovingly donated Eli's cape.
