We were both really shocked at how well he really did. There was only about a 5 minute period where he was done and a few trips up and down the hallway managed to suffice him for the rest of the show. He did SO well! I even saw a few previews that I may consider trying another time.

I just used mod podge to adhere the letters to the canvas.
It was easy to get them aligned but it took about 15-20 minutes total to get them lined up.
I used a hair dryer to melt the crayons and started with it on high to get them "set" so I could start melting the colors. I went left to right and let each color start to melt and then turned off the dryer to let it set. I repeated the process 3-4 times until I was happy with the splatters/pattern.
one hint: the higher the blower, the more it splatters. :)
and WAAAA-LAH! The finished product

Anyone he sees or hears is in pain will be automatically be asked if they are ok. No matter if he knows you or not and he has no qualms about hugs just to make your day a little better. Just a few minutes ago I stubbed my toe. He came running said "you ok, mommy?" I told him I was but he rubbed my back and said it'll be ok....
Melt my heart!
He makes every effort to be a "big" boy and helps Mommy and Daddy around the house whenever he can. He LOVES letting Bear outside and has really been excited to help with so many things these days. He will even stand in the doorway and yell for B's to come in. (funny enough, Bear actually listens).
He is so polite too which I adore. He says "Please, Mommy" and "Thank You" and without coaxing. One of the cutest things he says is in response to asking him a question..... here's an example
Mommy: " Will you let Bear outside?"
Maddox:" Well...... ok."
proceeds to run to the door to let Bear outside.
The dramatic pause gets me every time! :)
Maddox. " I wanna dance!"
Mommy: "Go dance then, it sounds fun!"
Maddox: " Well...... ok."
He is into Dora a lot right now which must have come from Day Care because it was completely out of the blue. It's crazy to watch with him and listen to all that he is picking up. He answers her questions and points to things on the screen. Growing and changing, so fast!
There are so many cute things that he says and does but most of all he just makes me so proud. I am lucky to have him in my life. Best gift ever!
