When You Got A Problem

I laid Dylan down for a nap Saturday afternoon.   I could hear him talking, jumping & banging around; then he got quiet for awhile.  Great he is winding down and falling asleep I thought.  Just then I hear him singing.  I got closer to the monitor to listen.  "When you got a problem think think think.  If you got a problem just think! Think! Think!"  I thought to myself the only problem he has is being stuck in his crib; then I realized he is trying to figure out an escape route.  =)

Big & Strong

Everyone is constantly telling Dylan in order to get big and strong like his Daddy he has to eat all of his food.  One day Grandma Jean (Betty) and Dylan were driving home from the nursing home "Now I will be big and strong like Daddy." Dylan said   "Why?" Grandma Jean asked.  "Because I ate all my licorice!" Dylan replied.  Not exactly what we meant but Dylan has away of making things work his way =)

Cookie Medicine

I didn't feel very well yesterday so Dr. Dylan decided he was going to take care of his mommy.  Last night he came over to me with some medicine.  He told me to open up and take this because it would make me feel A LOT better.  "What is it?" I asked  "Cookie medicine." he replied.

Don't Forget Me

One morning last week Dylan was questioning where Daddy was.  I told him he was at work like he is every morning.  Dylan didn't seem to like this and he also didn't want to call Daddy; like we do every morning.  I didn't think much about it and we went on with our morning routine.  That evening while I was at work Heath and Dylan called me to tell me good night..  Heath told me that Dylan was being a little Stinker to him.  He also told him that Dylan was mad at him.  When Heath asked him why he said because you didn't wake me up to go to work with you.  Apparently Dylan had told his Daddy the night before that he wanted to go to work with him in the morning.  LOL!  He is already holding grudges.  Poor Daddy is going to get the cold shoulder quiet often since he works with BIG trucks...and we know how much Dylan loves those BIG trucks!!!!  The next night at bed time Dylan's words were "Don't forget me!"

Too Many Smoochie-Woochie-Kins

I would have to say my favorite time of the day is when Dylan and I wind down just before bed. We lay in Mommy and Daddy's bed talking, playing, cuddling or just simply enjoying our quiet time together. This usually last about 15-30 minutes; depending on the how much spunk Dylan has left in his day. Friday night we followed a different routine. We laid in my bed while Mommy watch a whole 60 min show. WOW! Of course during commercials I would tickle, nibble, and toss Dylan around in the bed. I was giving him lots and lots of smoochie-woochie-kins too. It is so hard not to kiss him constantly. He is so sweet and gives the best kisses. I finally asked Dylan "Does Mommy kiss you too much?" He looked at me as if I was asking him a trick question, which struck me as funny because he is only 2 1/2, but then again we already know he is a smarty pants ;) He finally shook his head yes.....but my sweet little angel placed his hands on my cheeks and said "But I like it" as if he was assuring me it was alright because he didn't mind LOL! What did we do so right to deserve this incredible gift from God!!!!

Speaking Spanish

Last night I gave Dylan his change to put in his piggy bank. He has always been a well mannered toddler; please, thank you, excuse me, your welcome etc. I set his money down in front of him and he said "Gracias." I guess if we want to keep up with him we best start a refresh course in Spanish. He already counts in Spanish and now he is using Spanish words in place of English words :)
