Cheerios and bubbles

Look how he shoves that fistful of Cheerios! And he's sitting on a real chair... we may have to get more stable chairs, maybe a booster seat for him. He's not as happy in his high chair any more. 

Notice the "mmm" and that he's also saying "please" more often now (always prompted, tho; and as a sign; it's supposed to be a one-handed sign - this one was especially enthusiastic). I've got to capture "thank you" one of these days, too. It's sooooo cute!  

Ride 'em cowboy!

Another great hand-me-down, the zebra, 'er "ra," is one of his favorite toys. And yea, mom is quite the paparazzi. 

Saying the names of his food

We didn't try for "green beans" in this video, but "cheese" has been one of his words for a while now. One of his favorite foods, so before he'd try to say it, he'd at least point to the fridge when he wanted some.

New tricycle!

This was another fantastic hand-me-down from friends/colleagues at the NWC. As you can see, Dylan can't reach the pedals, but he really loves riding around on this and has figured out he can steer! He also forgets that he can steer, which makes for interesting moments. Keeps me on my toes. [The adult can steer, too.]

Ah, ah, ah! Little toddler brain processes that info.

When watching this the first time he also put his hand up by his face. Me thinks he was continuing to process that rule vs. his urges. Those big rocks make such spectacular splashes!

Such style!

Oh, my! Such style and grace! Listen carefully for when the rock is actually thrown. There is quite a ramp-up to the actual throw.

He loves watching this video of himself

I've played this video for Dylan several times. He usually laughs at himself, particularly at the "where's the baby" part.

Another of his frequent words is "stick," or "ti."  Little does he know these are actually a 5-yr old friend's light sabers. Um, hmm!


One of his current favorite words is "bus." 'Er, well, there's no "s" sound yet, so it's "bu." He's got a toy bus at home. He found one at a friend's house (video). And we see them pass the daycare every day. 

The ones passing the daycare are shuttles from the free parking at Lloyd Noble up to campus. All they do is run back and forth, so I'm thinking we might take a ride on the bus for fun one of these days.

Not quite ready for a bigger kid swing

He fell off twice, including just as this video is ending. But we still had to tear him away to a bucket swing in another part of the park!

Such a cute run!

He's running now! It's pretty cute and even better when he's running up for a hug.

What is he saying?!?!?!?!

Dylan is starting to talk (or babble?) in sentences and I SOOOOO WISH I KNEW WHAT HE WAS SAYING!  Can you decipher this?

The crab crawl

He spontaneously started doing the crab crawl one day. 

More and more...

If one "more" sign doesn't work, try another! [Come on, mom, you know what I want!] 

Dylan, happily chewing on a Dietsch's dark chocolate non pariels candy while I try to get him to say "chocolate" for the camera.
