That's my boy! Part 2

I'm posting this so that I have it recorded (because someday I'm going to do one of those blog books like Megan!) but also to brag on my boy. He amazes me everyday with his ever growing vocabulary and knowledge!
At almost 20 months old, he is consistently saying words like porcupine and guacamole. Yesterday, we were coloring and he asked for a "circle". After the circle, I drew other shapes and asked him to name them. He correctly identified an oval, triangle, trapezoid, and diamond (which was actually a square but from his perspective looked like a diamond).
Today, he helped me count to 10. He filled in the numbers 2, 3, 6, 8, 9, and 10 at the appropriate times! It just really surprised me!
But the question remains, if he is smart enough to do those things, why doesn't he remember what "no" means and why does he think it's perfectly normal to eat out of the toilet?

That's my boy!

My cute kids!

I love my kids so I think almost every picture of them is just adorable. So, I hope that I'm not boring all of you with my slide show.

Fun with John Paul

Being the active little boy that he is, John Paul manages to get into lots of things and make lots of messes. Here are a few examples:

"Helping" Mom sweep

Eating ice off the sidewalk. (yes, I just watched him do it)

Learning to color

"Coloring" when Mom isn't watching. (you should've seen his hands)

"No, don't clean my face"

One of Kate just because she's so cute!

Weekend with the Grandparents

For the Labor Day weekend, we went to Waco to visit my family. It is always nice to see family and relax a little with extra hands and eyes to watch the kids. Here are a few pictures:

John Paul, Kate and their grandparents

John Paul and his Great-Grammy


I love this boy!
