I hope you all had a very lovely Thanksgiving! I'd just like to state how thankful I am for this little guy... He is one of my two main reasons for living, and I am so thankful and blessed to be his mommy!
After Thanksgiving dinner today, Joshua grabbed the camera and proceeded to give us a little glimpse into how he sees things around him. Enjoy!
Can of chicken broth on the counter: The tops to the sparkling cider we purchased: Side of our desk. Wow, it looks old. Aunt Brianne's legs and feet: This duster is one of Joshua's favorite toys: Aunt Brianne is silly... Very silly. Joshua loved "helping wash the dishes"... Yes, this is the current contents of our kitchen trash. Close-up of our carpet. Daddy is not amused by Joshua's incessant photo taking... Catalogs littering the floor... You'd think we were preparing for Black Friday, but we really weren't. His toy box!
It's been a few weeks since I last posted...things have been so busy lately, and I apologize. I did want to post some of my current favorite Joshua sayings:
"Night night, Mommy! Go put your jamas on and go sleep with Daddy!" "Do you want to race this, Mommy Daddy?" (he is OBSESSED with racing and will "race" almost anything) "There's a other one tar (car)!" "What are they are?" (no, that's not a typo...that's how he says it) "No, I not!" (in response to comments about him looking tired) "It's tickle time! Tickle me, Mommy!" "Let's read this one." "I want a big hug!" "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20!" (yes, he skips #13) "That's a funny one!" "I want a sawdish (sandwich) with peanut butter and jam." "Please have some milk, please?" (that's him asking for milk)
That's just a sampling. I'm so grateful that his speech has improved so much over the past six months. Love that kid.
"Playing footsies with mommy, oh yeah!" (ask us if you want the context here)
"Here, Mommy, let me help you get up, because you don't know how to get up with a baby in your tummy."
Joshua: "Mommy, I love you." Mommy: "I love you, too, son." Joshua: "ANGRY BIRDS!!!!"
(After falling off a swing at the park, he starts whimpering) Mommy: "Come here, Joshua, and tell me the story." Joshua: *climbs up on my lap, then sniffles* "Um, once upon a time, I was on the swing..."
"I gotta tell ya somethin'."
"I'm doing the I love you sign! I'm still doing it! I'm still doing it!" (which he shouts as we exit his room at bedtime)
Mommy: "Is London (girl at daycare) your girlfriend?" Joshua: "Yes, and Nicky (boy at daycare) is my boyfriend."
Mommy: "Do you know who is coming over tomorrow?" Joshua: "Yes, I do!" Mommy: "Who?" Joshua: "What?" Mommy: "You just said you know who is coming over. Who is it?" Joshua: "I don't know."
Mommy: "It's a party!" (because my sister and brother-in-law were in the car with us when I picked Joshua up from daycare) Joshua: (looking out the window) "Aww, I missed it!"
"Mommy, the sun is coming up to say hello to me!"
Grandma says: "I love you, Joshua." Joshua responds: "No, you don't! Mommy and Daddy love me!"
"Mommy, can my pet watch TV?" (referring to a large smiley-faced metallic balloon)
Grandma says: "Talk about your mixed metaphors!" Joshua says: "Not my mixed bananaphores!"
