superman does tricks
Words that actually sound like words:
wolf, duck, mom, dad
Words he's working on:
guck = truck
esses = glasses
raff = giraffe
ugs = bugs
dis = this
Latest squirrely behavior? I was brushing my hair in the bathroom. I looked down only to discover E had unravelled an ENTIRE roll of toilet paper - silently - and it was gently swirled around him right next to me. Don't worry, I re-rolled it all back up. Still great for blowing noses...
I heard him trying to open the powder room cabinets so I peeked around the corner (yes, I forgot to close the door). His favorite toy giraffe was enjoying a swim in the toilet! Time to install that toilet lock...
He was having a little snack of those melt-in-your-mouth organic puffs, when he decided to help himself to some more. (He actually signs the word "please" now which is precious!) Anyhow, mommy was distracted in the kitchen and I looked over to discover he poured the whole package of puffs onto his tray. A mountain of puffs, in fact. SIGH. "Too much!" I chuckled to him. Too much.
And the baby wipes - I'm sure you see where this is going - any time he can get his little paws on them he happily plucks them out and tosses them onto the floor. I have restacked them countless times and I am slowly being trained to store them up high and out of reach. Is there such a place?
I have to laugh every time something like this happens, because as you'll notice, it's always MY FAULT! I'm always too busy multi-tasking and I can't watch him every single, solitary second that he's awake. So, I laugh with him and teach him that cleaning up can be fun, too.
Some days I feel like I'm living in a Saturday Night Live skit.
