And here's what we do...
Taking a break from the great pumpkin hunt.
"Help me. Help me. Help me." He always wants to help and be involved in everything.
I love these two.
Yesterday morning I laid on the couch and said to Garrett, "I'm too tired today. Can I be the baby and you be the Mama? He looked at me for a second, as if thinking about swapping, then said, "Ummmm, no."
I was going into the bathroom, and any mom of a toddler knows that if the kid knows you're going in the bathroom, you won't be alone for long. Garrett has his own toilet in the bathroom and he often sits on it when I'm in there. (Special bonding time.) This particular time I stopped and grabbed a tampon from the box under the sink, and heard Garrett running, "Mom! Mom! Mom!" I said, "Ok! Ok! Come sit on your toilet." Without missing a beat he opened the cupboard under the sink, grabbed a tampon, plopped down on his toilet then held up the tampon and said, "Mine." Ok, bud...you can't be exactly like me.
And in other news, Addie took her first steps yesterday. She lets go of things and stands unassisted a lot, but twice yesterday she let go and took a couple of steps forward! It's so fun to see babies learn new things. But who knows, it may be within a couple days that she'll be walking around, or like Garrett's first steps, it may take 2 or 3 months to decide she's a fan of the whole walking thing.
