Stick a Fork in It

Who would have thought that learning to use utensils would be so tough? It’s hard to imagine what people did before there were mini-forks and spoons. I don’t even want to think about chopsticks!

I love how wide you open your mouth right now for a tiny bite. We can’t even pretend to help out with this process because “Gray dude it!” is the first thing out of your mouth when anyone else grabs the fork. Independence is important…so stick with it, little one.



First Cut

You got your first haircut over the weekend. For the most part, it was fun. You got to sit in a police car, watch cartoons, and play with a singing duck! The only scary part was when she had to clean up the edges. Thank goodness that part didn’t last very long. You do look very handsome with your new ‘do.



Reading on the Pot

Yep. You like your dad to read you books while you sit on the potty. We’ve been doing this for about a week now and tonight was the first night that you actually peed in the potty! Of course, it was by accident…but we still cheered like you had just finished first in the Olympic 400 meter dash. Gotta celebrate the small things because the small things are REALLY big when you’re a toddler and doing everything for the first time.

I’m sure you’ll really appreciate this post when you’re fifteen and your friends find this in the archives.



“More crackers.”

You have recently fallen in love with crackers and p (translation-crackers and peanut butter). Plain crackers are not acceptable these days. I wonder how you would feel about peanut butter on celery. We might give that a try next week.

When you had finished at least 10 crackers today, you wanted more. Unfortunately, they were all gone.



Your daddy taught you how to use the water sprayer…and you LOVE it! You get pretty angry when we have to turn it off to go inside for dinner. Daddy was filming you during this water play session and his phone had a nice bath. He is going to have to be more careful with his electronics. I stayed pretty far away with the camera.





Choo Choo

You have a new found love for trains, cars, buses, and fire trucks. It is really fun to watch you push them around the room. When we are in the car, you scream out BUS! if one drives by. Who knew you could be that loud?

And…your platelet count was up to 244K today! That is up above the low count, which means that we don’t have to go back for blood work for 2 whole months. Woot woot!
