Some Randomness

I believe that every family with a toddler needs one of these

Our family always had a dust buster growing up - but I have now found that this is my favorite item in the house right now.

Alex has added cracker and berry (as in blue berry) to his signing vocabulary - we are now up to about 15 words and he can really communicate with us.

He is OBSESSED with books. Especially his Diego book. These books aren't baby board books - these are regular books for 4-6 year olds. And we have to read it over and over and over and over and over and over and over and (do you get the point!). We are going to have our hands full with him. He is SO smart.

Example - we were on the way home from Columbus yesterday. He was looking at one of his books. He then started signing horse. I didn't think there were any horses in the book, so I looked - and sure enough - up in the corner were three little horses. NOTHING gets past this kid.

He found a little bottle of shampoo (from one of my business trips - you know - the stuff that is in your hotel room). I don't know how he knows it is shampoo, but he's been carrying it around, pretending to pour it in his hand and then he rubs his head - it's hilarious!!

I leave you with some cuteness.

We also have a dust buster vaccum thingy and love it. We even vaccum out Dominick's high chair and his clothes with it when he eats something such as crackers.

I'm so glad to hear you speaking of how intelligent your baby is. I feel like I'm bragging sometimes but that is never my intentions. I am just completely amazed by the things out Little Man knows. It is so amazing! Alex sounds a lot like Dominick.

He is definitely a smart boy! Girl, you know I love a polo and plaid shorts on a boy -- that is super cute!!!

Andrea said...

Yea! You know I am loving the shorts!! Super cute!

OF COURSE Alex is brilliant! There's no doubt! I can't wait to get K. to sign-so much fun!

Kim, We were at our attorney's office in GC yesterday and guess what we saw... a picture of Alex! Robby and I were looking at all the pictures on the wall and I pointed to his picture and said, "He looks like Alex." Then I saw his name under the picture. I didn't realize we had the same attorney. Can't wait to come home and have play dates!
