Ten Things: 22 1/2 Months

    1. Casey pooped in the Potty while we were on vacation in Texas.  I never thought I would get so excited about watching someone poop in a toilet.
    2. Casey picked out an Elmo potty chair and exclaimed loudly (in Target) that it was to “peed in it.”
    3. While we were in a store in Texas, Casey pointed out a little girl and her mommy. “Tiny,” he said, pointing to the little girl.  “Huge,” he then exclaimed, pointing to the mommy.  Thankfully they were out of ear shot.
    4. While in Texas, we took Casey to see his first musical, “Motown”, at Fort Worth’s Bass Hall.  I was a nervous wreck but as soon as the lights came down and the curtain rose he was entranced, watching the opening act as the performers sang and danced to a montage of Motown hits.  He began clapping along with them and swaying back and forth, dancing on daddy’s, and then mommy’s, lap.  It was so incredible to watch and I just laughed in delight at his enthusiasm.  I wish I had it on video.  We made it about 30 minutes in before he decided he wanted to sing along as well. Then we had to take turns walking him around the lobby.  We left at intermission.
    5. Casey slept through the night last night.  When he woke up this morning, he did so talking in his sleep. “Airplane…high…(he smiled) singing, clapping, dancing.”  He woke up and saw me and smiled his sweet baby smile. “Hi..singing, clapping, dancing.”  I bet I know what he was dreaming about!
    6. Current favorite foods include: salami, olives, strawberry yogurt and anything dipped in ketchup.
    7. Casey got a lot of toys for christmas which kept him occupied for a few minutes. The other day I took every pillow in our house and threw them in a pile on the living room floor.  He played for hours. Other favorite games include: Red Light/Green Light, playing with play-doh, picking things up with tongs, hauling things in his dump truck and making “tall towers” with…anything.
    8. Casey has begun to sing along to songs on the radio or when I am singing.  He gets about every fifth word.  I love it.
    9. He has gotten the concept of “pretend”.  He plays with pretend foods and reminds me that it is “tend” when I mime eating them.
    10. Right now, he is asleep in my arms as I sit in the rocking chair. I couldn’t bring myself to put him down after resettling him during a nap.  I’m fishing this post on my phone which is a pain in the ass…and I wouldn’t have it any other way!wp-1453407392960.jpegwp-1453407406204.jpeg
