Last night, Aaron and I just sat on the couch and watched Michael entertain himself by spinning in circles and running laps back and forth across the living room-- squealing with joy and bubbling over with laughter the whole time. Occasionally, Aaron and I would look at each other and just laugh because Michael found the silliest things to laugh about. Being the mommy of a toddler is so fun and so funny! Here is a photo recap of Michael's activities these last few weeks:
Masquerading as Batman in his spare time.
Being my sweet outside boy! He LOVES to be outside! This picture was taken by Grandma Chips as Michael played outside at her house. Melt my heart! He's just so cute!
This is one of Michael's new-found favorite activities: Taking the couch pillows off the couch, throwing them on the floor, jumping on top of them, and then laying down. :)
This was the next day. As you can see, it got a little colder and he had to wear a jacket. He does an excellent job of keeping the hood up! Once again, a stick in hand makes a very happy boy! I LOVE his excitement and expressions!
Looking out the window at Grandma and Grampa's house. He loves to look in mirrors and out the windows.
This was on Sunday. Daddy was at the Seahawks game, so Michael was sporting his Seahawks gear at home! Here he is playing with a School Bus-- we love School busses since Grampa drives one and Auntie Angela drives one too! This weekend, he started saying "bus-bus." So fun! Such a cute little face!
Our growing boy. He LOVES to eat! Dinner time always brings lots of smiles! (PS-- I don't even mind if you see my messy countertops in the background. It was the night before trash pick-up, and we had just received 4 boxes from Amazon.com and Target.com, and I was busy cleaning out the fridge and loading the dishwasher. I'm expanding my motherly skills to include housework while feeding a toddler, and cooking supper!) :)
This is our sweet boy holding his "crown" (one of my head-bands). He thinks it's the funniest thing to put it on his head and run around the living room.
And the final picture of the post that I'll leave you with is an action shot of this busy toddler during one of his laps through the living room sporting his "crown." :) How could anyone not love this kid?!? I think he's pretty fantastic. :)
I hope you have enjoyed this peek into the world of Michael as a toddler. He definitely keeps me on my toes! Check back in a few days for a pregnancy update and a recipe to a FABULOUS flourless peanut butter cookie (low carb). :) Much love, Reba
