One of Johns favorite things to do is take all the dish towels and throw them in the trash can. It is too irresistible and he can do it in like 5 seconds! He loves getting into drawers, this last week his new favorite is taking the pans out from the drawer under the oven, throwing them on the ground, and laughing hysterically at the horrible loud crashing noise they make.
I said, "Smile at the camera!" John got it- Brett did not. He is still handsome! John is starting to say a lot more words and is getting good at copying what we say. His favorite word (other than banana) is "Hi". He says it to EVERYONE: Grocery store people, other little kids, bankers, homeless guys… doesn't matter to him :) His other new words are keys, cheese, milk, and shoes. He also makes puppy, dinosaur, cow, and monkey noises.
This year my birthday aligned with my sister in laws graduation! So we celebrated in Honeyville. Brett took me to a nice restaurant then we went did go karts, mini golf, and bating cages! It was a lot of fun!
John loves animals! So visits to the farm are extra exciting for him. The other day we went into a home and they had a deer head mounted on the wall. John pointed and laughed. Brett took him over close to it and he hesitantly stuck his hand out to pet it! The poor kid thought it was a live animal… I'm not telling him!
Have you ever played Aggravation? Brett's a pro! But in the end we lost to the competitors on our left. We may have to invest in this game- it was a lot of fun!
And I just really liked this picture. John makes this face anytime he wants to sit in my lap and I take too long picking him up!
I took John with me to a party last night and I was surprised when he stood up and walked half way across the room all by himself. Before that he has only ever walked between people! As the night went on and he became more tired we had to take off because he started hitting, and throwing a tennis ball at (NOT to) a little boy on the floor. (Can't believe I let him do it twice! Bad mom moment…) It was fun socializing regardless!
