Some of the phrases he has now: I love you, I want chips, I want ki ki (candy...derived from Kit Kats) I want a binkie (he only gets them when he is in his crib) and I want my blankie or Ba..... Its hot and my favorite... I wanna tuby... ok its dang cute when he says I love you too.
He has a lot more but those are just some of my faves. He really is starting to talk a lot... won't be long till I can't get him to sit quietly.
Leland loves to be outside... and Saturday he decided it looked warm enough to go out and let himself out the back door. I must not have locked it but he has never taken the wood out to open it before (it wedges in really well) so that was a little amusing till I saw him covered in muck... wish I had thought to take a picture... I think he was happy to get in a bath to warm up after that little outing.
Leland also likes to tell people where their eyes are by sticking his finger in them while he tells you what they are. He knows nose and we are working on mouth and ears. I have been told he does both of those last two but I have never seen them so I don't know for sure if its true.... but its a pretty credible source so I will take their words for it!
Today we had Eli over for a play date in the morning... and Leland dumped out two smallish things of Sunny D on my carpet... I of course yelled... a lot and swatted his bum twice... this is not a new thing for him... he does it all the time.... and its getting really really old... so today I kind of decided (which really stands for I was so mad.....) that it was time to drive it home... this IS NOT something we do in our household (mainly because I am worried he will do it at someone elses house) anyway after I got done telling Leland rather loudly that we don't dump out our drinks... Eli spoke up real quietly from behind and said "I love you Allie?" I am sure he thought he was in trouble too... poor kid. But it made me laugh so hard I forgot I was angry... and we played some more. (Leland was headed for his crib)
We had Kinsington... (did I spell that right Lauren?) over yesterday to play with us and Leland was pretty fascinated by her. He thinks she is pretty awesome... and he loved all the gear she came with:D
This is the first picture we took out in the snow... I am a super awesome mom because I didn't realize that the red dots all over Leland's face were a staph infection... we got it all under control now but it was stressful for a bit!Overall I am going to say he loved it... this was his face almost the whole time... Darling!
You can tell in this picture that it has the follow through to come my way! At least there weren't any rocks in it!!
Amy sent us home with a Mack ( I think to borrow... but maybe to keep... who knows) and for Valentines day she got Leland Cars... so he now watches it at least once a day with his Mac... that Eli introduced him to. We think its pretty darling...
Crafty is not really my thing... however I did make this curtain tie... along with 3 others to go in our front room... gotta have a little bit of fun with it. Plus I just really love Zebra print... I haven't figured out why yet.... but it could be that it is black and white... my two fave colors to use!
Because Amy loves Leland and me she put our names on her Zoo membership so that we could come and enjoy the zoo free:D We usually go with Amy to the Zoo and we usually have a BLAST. Lately we have been taking Camden ( the one with the pigtails) along for the ride. Leland absolutely adores being out with his Amy and Eli... and he even seems to be warming up to Camden! Well anywho here are some pictures...
This is Patrick... the silver back... the incredibly thoughtful silver back... yes he may be on the other side of the glass but when you get close enough to him to realize how BIG he is you kind of panic when he shifts his weight. A few times ago when they had the girl gorillas on this side of the exhibit they would run up to the windows and pound on them... we thought it was because of all the school kids that were tapping on the glass (which I don't think you are supposed to do) but this time around we were told by someone in their research center that they like the reaction we give when they do it... they think they are playing with us and not to be afraid... right I don't know if you have ever seen a 200-300 pound animal run at a window and start pounding but its scary! I put my hand up on the glass to see if he would look at it but pulled it away when he started to move. He held his hand out like he was examining it... or showing me what his looked like. It was a pretty neat experience... one that Amy and I enjoyed although the kids were ready do be done!
