This week in 2009, 2010 and 2011
I did a post like this for the first week of October and it made me happy because I got to go through old pictures. My kid is a goof and it's amazing to see how much he has changed. The last few days have been difficult because he has taken the phrase "terrible twos" to heart. A demon has possessed his tiny little frame and when he doesn't get what he wants his head spins around in circles and he climbs the ceiling while screaming as loud as he can. Sound familiar? I think we need an exorcist. When he's not being evil though he enjoys long walks on stairs, candlelit pumpkins and hanging out with cars. All kidding aside his imagination has blossomed to the extreme and he says the craziest stuff. He has renamed two of the Cars 2 characters. Finn McMissile is now "Lightning Ashaw" and Francesco Bernouli is now "Tianiano." What the? Sure, tiny human, whatever you say. And with that I give you:
The Linkapatomas the first week of November the year he was born 2009:
Wearing my hat and trying to keep warm one evening. He mostly just liked playing with the things that hung down. About this time he was still a water fountain of a kid trying to get more teeth and a smiley little dude who loved to make roaring noises that Daddy taught him. Nevermind the fact that his outfit isn't the best and he has olive green socks!
First week of November 2010:
D was deployed and there was a gigantic snow mountain that accumulated in our cul-de-sac so we bundled up and he was king of the mountain. Around this time he waddled like a penguin in all his snow gear, was quickly falling in love with Ivie, was fascinated by babies and was a bit more stylish than the previous year!
First week of November 2011:
I interrupted his coloring time (which he can't seem to get enough of lately) for a photo op. We aren't even close to wearing snow gear this year. We JUST turned off the AC a week or so ago. Link has made many new friends and loves running around rough housing with all the boys his age that are here. He loves to dance with D and I and make up silly songs and he believes that there are alligators in the sewers that eat his poop (thanks D). It is also a battle to get him to change out of his Super Mario jammies. He's a nerd. We are proud.
Toddler soup has not really been on the menu lately... mostly because it's too much work.
