Trying to catch up on the latest about our cutie:
-He actually sits through books now that aren’t “Goodnight Moon” or “Barnyard Dance”. Of course I usually have to make up a better story and do funny voices and/or movements but honestly I’m not sure if that’s for him or for me because the lack of storyline in board books is appalling.
-He can stack blocks. Auntie L gave him these awesome soft squeezable ones and he finally got old enough to use them as something other than missiles.
-He loves climbing on things. Loves it. He gets so proud and starts clapping for himself, kind of adorable. I think it’s a good thing we used our hardwood floor fund for adoption fees instead because the extra thick padding on this carpet loves babies. The off-white color everywhere, including the dining room not so much.
-He really likes playing on my phone. But after starting out pretty innocently by sending out a few texts & emails & writing on Gigi’s FB wall he moved on to deleting whole text conversations and somehow merging three different mail accounts. So now he’s been banned from the phone unless I help him. And whenever I get done with a conversation I’ll let him hit the “end” button. Which mean he now will start saying “bye bye” as soon as I get on the phone, which is pretty funny.
-On a related note I must yell (cough, cough) at my computer a lot because he yelled at his laptop the other day. Yes, he has his own laptop. (An old one of N’s.) Which he dances on. Literally, like on the keyboard.
-We sometimes call Baby K BabyKakes so Thane picked up on that and calls his pictures BabyBay and will kiss his picture when he sees it on my phone. Melt my heart.
-He’s been with us over half his life now – I need to post about that. It makes me emotional just thinking about it.
-He’s getting the whole concept of playing pretend now. The other night at a restaurant he took this toothpick that had orange cellophane on the tip and started blowing at it and saying “haaaahaaa” (hot)like it was a candle. Clever little guy.
-He pretty much runs everywhere these days. Which is a blast except when I blink at stores and realize he’s off and down the aisle.
-He decided the garbage bag belonged in the living room the other day and when I asked him why this was his wordless answer.
-The photo on the right is just because I love his batman shirt that the M family gave us. And because “I’m Batman” was his first complete sentence. Not that his Dad and I are proud of that or anything.
