My little Buckaroo

This little Buckaroo keeps me on my toes and usually smiling. There are so many little things he does and says that I hope to remember. It's those small things that make up for the frustrations that come with being a parent.

Old MacDonald = Old DeDonald
Alligator = Owie Gator
Scorpion = Owie Bug
Great Grandma = Big Grandma
Qadry = Tree Tree
Movie = Moomie
Big Truck = Big Cock

As we take him upstairs to bed, he blows kisses, waves and yells his goodnights with each step he takes. We often have him sign I love you from the stairs and he wiggles his little finger on the you part hoping for someone to come and wiggle their finger and touch his.

He has been randomly singing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and mid song says Night Night and pretends to go to sleep. He sings it throughout the day playing this game, and he pretends to fall asleep in random parts of the song.

As he drinks his bottle before bed, he always wants to touch us. He pulls our ears, runs his fingers in our eyelashes, pats us with his toes. It's actually kind of annoying when it happens, but he has been doing this since he was a newborn.

He really likes when you hit the little noise makers on the side of the road that are there to keep you in your lane. He starts shouting more noise??? Noise Ears??? He now notices that he hears with his ears. He hears a firetruck and for the next 20 min he is pointing to his ears and talking about the firetruck he heard.

He is all boy. Loves dirt, cars, firetrucks, baseball hats, balls, animals, bugs, electronics, ect. But this boy has a very tender side. He really loves babies right now. He likes to pat real ones, and put their pacifiers in their mouth but he also loves Daria's baby dolls and feeding them a pretend bottle.

Everynight after we read scriptures we ask him what song he wants to sing, without fail he eagerly says "Popcorn". One day he won't say the Popcorn song, and I will be one bummed momma.

Josh had him on Friday for the evening while I hung out with a girl friend. When I got Kaige up in the morning, I thnk he was expecting to see his daddy. As I lifted him out of the crib he started to giggle. Then he grabbed each of my cheeks and gave me a big kiss on the lips. He tightly wrapped his arms around my neck in a hug, pushed his cheek to mine and giggled the whole way down the stairs. Talk about a way to start my day! I love my little Buckaroo!
