Hide and Sink

One of Felix's favorite things to play with everybody is "Hide and Sink" (seek). He loves to count and hide and shriek with laughter. Yesterday afternoon, the boys were all playing hide and sink while I was practicing the piano and Quinn was studying Hebrew. Silas got distracted from being it after he found Corin and they both started something else. Minutes tick by... Felix tiptoes out of the master bedroom to see where Silas is. He notices him at the table, me at the piano, Qiunn at the computer studying, and Corin doing homework. A big pouty lip pops out. Quinn notices him. "Beex, what's the matter?"
"Nobody finds me."
Quinn picks him up with much sympathy as the baby's little lip sticks out more and more. His little feelings were squashed. Poor thing. Can you imagine him being so still underneath the covers of our bed waiting and waiting? His poor little bitty heart.

So we all played Hide and Sink.

How sweet! He can come hide at our house for say, the next 3 years!

It's tough being the baby of the family. To cute. At our house someone always gets their feeling hurt when we play Hide and Sink.

Hide and Seek is huge with Carson right now too! Just a little boring because he likes to hide in the exact same spot every time! He hasn't quite figured out a good hiding and seek strategy yet!

Sweet story. Elliya doesn't get the concept of hide and seek. She'll hide (in the same spot) and holler for us to come find her all the while laughing and shrieking. We always play along!

Ahhhh, poor guy! Come to FL and I have 2 girls who would LOVE to play hide and sink with Felix.

Actually, Lexi calls it hide and sneak. I wonder what she's sneakin'.
