21 Months

Lately Emmet:

Counted to 8 out of nowhere!
Went pee-pee in the potty!
Started singing his ABC's (more like ABPBDPDB...LOP)
Loves to sing all his favorite songs, actually and it is the sweetest sound!
Asks for "Emmy eat ice dweam" a lot
Yelled out "JESUS DIED" over and over when he saw a cross at the bookstore
Is learning his colors! Although his first guess is always GREEN!
Answered "Emmet Bawnes" when asked his name by a stranger
IS back up to the 50% percentile of weight!! Hooray!

He has been doing this tongue things lately

His not-so-subtle way of telling me to stop taking pictures

Loves running!


"Bwuss our teef!"

Happy Papa Chee Day!

To my Creator who gave me this Gift,
Forgive my errors, as I forgive those who err against me,
Help me control and manage the temptations, and
Avoid anger, ignorance and greed.
May I attain peace, strength and love. 

And this video is from when Emmet was about 15 months:

Emmet and I went to a farm just up the street today!

Testing out the goat's food...

"Goats say ahahahaha"


Donkey! He loves donkeys right now because of Shrek

Perot Museum

A few pictures of our recent visit to The Perot Museum of  Nature and Science

Talking with Dada about the "elephant" aka dinosaur

Taking in Big D! 

Found a "roomba" of course.

Running toward snacks

Pushing buttons 

Why would they put a shallow creek in the children's play area that runs downhill to a drop off into a pond-type place?!? Let's just say Emmet and Mama left with wet shoes. 

We are getting more mischievous as we get closer to 2...

Overall, it was fun! But Chad and I can't wait to go back without a toddler so we can, ya know, actually read and look at the exhibits :) 

Funny Emmet Stuff 3

Shoes = "woosh"
Coffee = "boppe"
When we leave he says, "Bye-bye, home!"
If he's looking for something, thinking, etc. he says, "Ummmm, thhht" (like a mouth clicking noise. I am trying to get video of it!)
Runs into the kitchen yelling, "Here he comes!!!"
Says hi and bye to inanimate objects... on the way to a diaper change, "Bye-bye, Slide!"
Loves toothbrushes
"Dar bbbbast!!" translation: car fast
Calls all circles "Roomba"
Gets frustrated when he can't play with or drive the cars on his shirt or in a book.
And, his prayer last night:

Me: Emmet, what would you like to thank Jesus for? 

E: kitty cat
Me: anything else?
E: more kitty cats
Me: ok, anything else? 
E: onions
Me: all right. Jesus, thank you for all the kitty cats and for onions. We love you. Amen. 
E: amen!

And it's been way too long since I've posted pictures!

Chatting with some people on the sidewalk in Uptown

Dada pointing at either the moon or an airplane, I can't remember!
