Things ill forget, Lollypops

Today we stopped at the bank for cash and Ro got a lolly pop for being so good.

He held it and liked it the whole way home. It was like something out of a commercial. Just smiling and licking his lolly, holding my hand.


Things ill forget ... reading

Last night at story time he pulled out a book. We asked "mummy or daddy" ( who should read it?) "no, mine". And he sat down and reads it to us. Monster spray, which I've only read to him once before.

Then he pulled out "Boats" and read that one too.

I think we're doing this whole parenting thing right.

June 11 ... 2 years, 2 months


We're full-blown twos right now! He shifts from being the happiest, most-content little guy to being a complete mess of grumpy, angry, tantrumy, box-o-whine.

Mother's Day was May 12th, so the "French Toast Man" came! (That's what it's called when we order from the Diner and the delivery man rings the door bell. Ro will tell the dog "Is Ok, Gi-Gi. Just French Toast man."



He's really into baseball. After calling it "foo-fah-ball" ("football") for several weeks, he finally got that baseball is a different sport. We watch the Red Sox when they're on TV (not frequently here in NYC), and we went to his first game on Mother's Day -- Norte Dame at St. Joe's in Jamaica.



His new favorite song is Take Me Out to the Ball Game (only in my house would that be considered a lullaby), and he's learned where we throw balls ("on the grass").

Gramma Jan and Grampy came down to visit and babysit so Mom and Dad could go out for their anniversary!

Then Auntie Jess came down and we went to the Zoo!


He speaks in full-blown sentences, with subjects and objects and verbs and everything.
His new favorite words:
Corn Flakes
Dinosaur Train

He tends to repeat the last word you say to him, which makes Story Time sounds a lot like a Baptist call-and-response sermon.
"In the light of the moon, a little egg lay on a leaf."
"One Sunday morning the warm sun came up and --pop!-- out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry caterpillar."
"He started to look for some food."

New games:

Water Table
Water table (2)

Putting on Makeup

Writing Letters
Hard at work coloring

Doing Work

Telling stories ... almost
I really want to take more videos of him tell me about his day, but he's too interested in the phone to concentrate on the story.

Shop like a Boss


Playing Tattoo

Taking care of Baby Max

Going to work and school is all about "seeing friends".
That's Baby William (who is clearly not a baby anymore)

And our Car Matt is awesome of trains!

We are officially none nursing. He just stopped. There was no "weaning" ... he was just done. It makes me a little sad, but I am SO excited to go and buy some new non-nursing bras!
