I am so annoyed at myself right now! I had an entire post written, including 3 pictures, and somehow dumb me posted it on the MOPS blog instead of my personal blog! OOPS!! It wouldn't let me cut & paste, so I'm going to have to rewrite it all. Double Argh!
Anyway...I'll hit the highlights....
Today we played with sidewalk chalk. (How's that for just the facts? I had that sentence sounding much better the last time around! Ok, time to stope being bitter). This was J's first experience with sidewalk chalk and while I would love to say that he drew all over the place, he mostly just enjoyed telling me what to draw. His favorite part was laying down on the sidewalk and me tracing around him. He did love it though, and I think next time he'll want to draw more.
My little guy has been making me laugh so much lately. Here's 2 recent examples:
**He knows his full name is Jackson Lee Mohr. Yesterday he was getting slightly exasperated with me while I was on the phone and said with the "you're in trouble" tone, "Mommy Lee Mohr!" Along with that, we've been trying to teach him how to spell his name. He starts off right but always ends up saying "J...A....Lee Mohr."
**Also yesterday, I heard a lot of lip smacking and "yumm" coming from the toy room. I knew that I hadn't given him a snack, so I went in to investigate. He had created his own snack from the leftover bits of play-doh we had somehow missed when cleaning. I said "Jack, we don't eat play-doh, that's yucky!" He immediately started sobbing and said "yes, mommy! eat play-doh!" One of his best sentences to date - glad he saved it for such a special occasion!
