22 month highlights of (a not so little) dustbug.
You know when you spend over an hour on a post and it just deletes and there is no way to recover it?
Yup, that just happened and I have no desire to recap everything again so sorry this is going to be super abbreviated.
-cosntantly demanding "moo-saks" (fruit snacks) or smartphones he claims as his own (but only deleting the apps on my phone for some reason, I have re-installed PBSkids and Angry Birds more times than I remember).
-Flirting with girls already.The other day we were at the grocery store and he saw twin girls (about 3 years old) in a shopping cart near by and he yells out "Hiiiii go-es!" (girls), which they thought was about the best thing ever as they giggled at the "baby" calling out to them. We have been working on distinguishing between boys and girls and it astounds me how quickly he picks up on certain things like that.
-Calling everyone by their names (even Bob, Dolvett and Anna if you know about the Biggest Loser) unless he doesn't know them and he calls them "friend". When he sees someone up high (on a ladder or on top of a house), he shouts, "Friend! Get down!" because once there were some guys cutting down branches off a tree and I was telling him how dangerous it is to go up that high.
-Loving on his Kevs, like ALL. THE. TIME. Hr rushes over to snuggle with him or get down to Kevs' level to say hello and ask "Ah pay? (play) It (with) me?" But his is not afraid to knock down Kevs if he is on the table (but nicely) and says "No no table Des. Et down."
-Turning into his father. This shouldn't be a huge surprise to me (hello, blonde straight hair and piercing blue eyes?) but personality-wise it is quite evident that he is his father's son. In addition to being a flirt and an athlete (we can add lacrosse, fishing and golf to his list of sporting skills added this month), he is a goofball who makes faces at himself whenever he catches a reflection and does silly things like fake falling and running into things to make people laugh. This is especially evident when he is surrounded by his girlfriends (our 11 year old neighbor and her friends):
-A loving boy!! Any and every animal he sees he walks right up to and does his typical "come here" squat while patting his knees (even if the dog is three times his size). Dogs, rabbits, cats, squirrels, chipmunks, ducks, this boy has a lot of love. He is also very willing to freely offer Mr. D and I kisses, hugs and snuggles, even when we least expect it.
-Into just about every standard (non trashy) cartoony little kid thing: Dora, Mickey Mouse, Blue's Clues, Curious George, Sesame Street... he loves to pick them out whenever he sees them in the grocery store (balloons, sunscreen, shampoo, etc).
-Eating just about everything I do. Monkey see monkey do. This is great (chobani, edamame, salads, smoothies) and sometimes not so good when he discovers me eating some of my vices (that of course he loves too like bacon, fruit snacks, chocolate, ice cream...).
-Singing all the time. Some songs are from nursery or what we learned at music class. His favorite song is "Dahs-dan's song" which goes something like "daaaaaahs-taaaaaaahn sooooooooooong" repeated indefinitely. Also itsy bitsy spider, happy and you know it, wheels on the bus still never get old and are my saving graces during trafficky car rides.
Everyone is always telling me how adorable and sweet little d is... I know it!! I miss that baby super fattie but this toddler is just getting more fun by the day! two months till he is two years old aaahhhhh!
