My loyal blog followers will remember Robbie the Snake. I am sad to inform you that he was involved in a fatal bus wreck in the master closet. (Just kidding. No cheap snakes from Mr. Tim's house were harmed in the photographing of this domestic incident.)
On Wednesday, after Benjamin's synagis shot, Andrew and I went by Namma's school to eat lunch with her. In between a bite of chicken McNugget and a French fry, Andrew stood up and announced, "I have to poo poo." He walked six steps into Mom's bathroom and said, "Namma, come help me poo poo!" We were both really excited that he might *finally* pee or poop on the toilet. But, alas, all I got was a cute picture. I think he was just fascinated with the short toilet. Aren't we all?
Dad and son, going out for a CVS run. Did I mention that I love having a CVS one minute down the road?
Does anyone know what 6EAMBWO spells? Andrew knows but he's not telling. He came up with this one all on his own. He was pointing to the letters and adding an extra sound to the end. This is probably because we've been talking about days on the calendar and he's interested in 4th, 5th, 6th, etc.
And here is a short video of it. Ah, the cuteness of a toddler. He didn't know I was taping him, and when he sees me, it's just adorable. The best part of this video, however, has got to be watching Andrew watch the video. He knows he's cute. **Be sure to pause the music at the bottom of the page first!!**
Blackmail picture anyone?
And then we spelled a real word. He first put the letters backwards and spelled "TAB," but we fixed it.
You know I had to include an adorable Benjamin picture, too!! Oh, by the way, we met with the occupational therapist to see if Benjamin qualified for OT services based on how he was (or wasn't) eating solid foods. But it kind of was just a precaution and a way to get a baseline. He is doing SO much better and she was actually quite impressed with him. So, YAY! Right before she left, I was holding Benjamin, and she held out her inkpen vertically in front of him. He looked at it carefully and then reached out and grabbed it with both hands! My heart swelled. :) She and I talked about when he should increase his solids from two to three times a day, when he should start finger foods and a sippy cup, etc. It was a great visit.
