On Monday I  was asked to look  after my great grandson Cypress for a few hours. He got his first haircut and he now looks like a little man...  Cypress loves to have his picture taken and always wants me to get my camera out and then he wants to see the pictures of himself.
For the benefit of the family, I included lots of  Cypress photos, so bear with me.

As some of you know, Cypress is obsessed with roosters and every time he comes for a visit, he wants to see the laughing roosters on Youtube. He watches it over and over.

He's eating some corn puffs that doesn't have any additive and it's my snack of choice.

It's back at watching the laughing roosters and munching.

It's now time to feed the hungry bear.

He's giving me the sign of peace I hope. I wonder where he learned that. He stuck his fingers in front of the camera and my camera is set on auto focus. The fingers are clear but not the face...

I told him to smile and instead he's hamming it up for the camera, the little toot. He's got snack of clementine, banana, and corn puff and great grandpa says that I'm spoiling him. I think they are healthy snacks...

Climbing on the coffee table with his cat and bear. He thinks it's cool to have the cat on the bear's back.

Great grandpa wants to have his picture taken too. Cypress looks so serious when he gets his photo taken sometimes. He looks right into the camera.

He climbed on the chair and saw some grapes on the counter and wanted some.

Now it time for a sip of milk. See the frame on the table. There's a rooster inside, what else. He got a little ice cream cone too but I didn't take a picture of that either.

Cypress loves to clean and I gave him a damp dishcloth and he scrubbed the fridge door and he was also scrubbing my cupboard doors. They really need a good scrubbing.
I missed a good shot of him sweeping the floor and using the dustpan. I was busy making soup.

Last summer when I was babysitting Cypress, he was getting tired and I turned the music on my laptop to  Canon in D, by Johann Pachelbel; Original Version Youtube and he listen to the soothing  music and he fell asleep. Now he still love that music so much and he watches the ladies playing the violins and will listen to it for a long time. I find it very soothing too.

He was busy scribbling  and started with one and then with two pencils he found on my desk.

I hope you enjoyed this little bit of vignette with my little great grandson Cypress. I had a great time although I didn't get a lot done.
Thanks for visiting my little blog and know that I really appreciate your generous comments.
Spring isn't very far away. Stay healthy and safe.
