I just walked in on Bear standing up at the toilet going potty. Not a big deal right? Wrong. He wasn't using a stool. I had to do a double take. He told me he was too big to be using a stool. Now granted he was raising himself up on his toes to reach but that just threw me face first into the fact that he is not a baby anymore. Or even a toddler. He is a boy. A big boy. I am going to go cry a little now...
So first of all thank you to Gephry for another one of her gorgeous photos. This just cracks me up the perfectness of it. I had to share it on here too.
Now this morning, Bear was playing with Bug and telling her the names of things. A little while later Bug crawled up to me with a duck in her mouth, that is how she gets around with things, by just carrying them in her mouth, and she took it out and held it up to me and said, "du-dut!" And then gave me a big fat smile.
She also has started saying thank you when I hand her things. It comes out, "tay-too." So sweet. Another sweet thing that she was started doing, instead of scowling at new people she now has started to smile and put her head shyly into my shoulder, and then peeks out to see if they are still there.
I got Bug a little her own little push car a week ago and then on Friday picked up another one at a garage sale since there were so many fights over the first one. Now they are having little driving parties following each other from room to room. She walks behind it and pushes, she hasn't figured out how to sit and go forward yet, however she is getting good at going backwards! They are so funny to watch together.
