|Pantless and shoeless at Sea World. Definitely how this little guy rolls on a usual basis.|
I have this desire to blog. Daily, in fact. But the constant exhaustion and on again/off again nausea make it so do I not only blog, but I rarely take pictures. Elisabeth had her first dance recital and my dad came out to visit and all I have to show for it is a few pictures taken on my iPhone.
I can't believe how this little boy is no longer a baby. Well, I let him run around in his diaper and kiss his chubby thighs enough so at times he feels like my baby still but I can't ignore the inevitable. He is definitely a toddler. Here are some fun things he does:
- Tantrums? Not his thing. When he is angry or frustrated he growls like a lion. Thus the nickname "Carsten the Lion" was born.
- He cleans up after himself. Regardless if we ask him to or not. He sings his version of the Clean Up song which is more like "Meem ma, Meem ma."
- Cars, bah (buses), Sofi the Beagle, the sand box and choochoos (trains) are his passion in life. As is his milk and o ju (orange juice).
- He no longer wants to sleep with anything in his crib. Just his blanket.
- He HATES poopy diapers and the big potty with the same vengence. Hmm...How to solve this predicament is beyond me at the moment but since anything to do with feces, human or dog, makes me want to vomit these days, I am eager to find the answer.
- He can swim. Thank you Miss Lynn and your lessons (albeit a little expensive.) For a boy who refuses to stay in a floatie and or hold unto you in the pool, this is wonderful.
- Still hopelessly in love with this sweet boy. How can you not be - wildness, picky eating and all?
We have been talking about if we want a boy or a girl next. Beyond the usual "oh, we just want a healthy baby" part of me hopes for another girl. Only because this little guy has been so special to me from the moment he was born. His birth was beyond magical and I have been smitten ever since. I kinda want him to be my special little boy . . . forever.
I am sure he will be. No matter who joins our family next.
