Bobby 2 years 8 months

This post is a day late because yesterday was Family Day and we were busy doing fun stuff all day long.

We got Bobby an easel and he is very into making his art. He is very serious about it but he also dislikes getting his hands messy, which is an interesting situation when using paints.

He also has been having naps at odd times on the weekends. He refuses to nap so we randomly find him asleep in places.

Bobby is a huge supporter of Valentine’s day. He made a v-days hat and has worn it TO DEATH. He has also been extra lovey, snuggly, kissy since v-day which is so heartmeltingly awesome.

Brent has introduced Bobby to Loony Toons and they can often be found in the basement watching the DVDs and eating PLAIN air popped popcorn. Apparently you are not supposed to give popcorn to children under 4 and we just learned this yesterday and now I guess we need to only eat it when he is sleeping because letting him see it and not giving him any would be pretty mean.

Bobby and Brent have also been bonding over video games lately. The play Classic NES together. Brent plays and Bobby just holds the extra controller. He likes anything Mario or Donkey Kong. At bedtime, Brent tells him the plot lines to classic games and Bobby thinks Brent is the greatest story teller of all time.

We’ve been letting him be ‘in charge’ of more things lately. He picks out his own pjs at night. We let him choose his own clothes but we give him guidelines "it’s really cold today so you need to pick something with long sleeves" or "oh that’s a nice shirt you picked, I think these pants would look nice with it. What do you think?"  He found his old Halloween costume and decided to wear it. Since we had no place to be, we agreed.

We planted a lot of our seeds for our veggies and we got him a little seed starting kit for watermelons. He’s in charge of it and checks it every morning. He’s also in charge of pouring the water into our seed trays when needed.

He knows a well designed chair when he sees one (also, if he could choose this shirt every day, he would)

On this day:

In 2010 – Bobby was a fun little dude
In 2009 – Bobby decided his Daddy was an all right guy after all
In 2008 –
In 2007 – THESE nuts!
In 2006 – We bought our first house
In 2005 – I think I was being overly dramatic

    He is gorgeous. I can’t wait to see pictures of him with his new sibling.
    I also love the floors in your house. The trend where we are is very dark flooring, but your light wood is beautiful.

    Yeah I’ve always wanted / had darker floors but honestly, dirt shows up way less on these floors!
