Toddler Tuesday Tales-4/29/08

*Chase is now saying "suuuit." This means he wants to get his swim suit out and go swimming.

*He says pee-poo when he has gas or is going #1 and #2. :) He usually laughs after he has gas too. Kinda gross but also very funny at the same time.

*He loves to run as you can see here:

*He is still really into coloring.





*He can kick a ball.

*When you ask where his cup or a toy is, he says "know." That means he doesn't know where it is. He says it with the cutest voice inflection. I love it.

*When Chase is uncomfortable (ie bright sun in his eyes, or the wind blowing on him, or he is hot) he says "col" (cold). I opened the blinds the other day after his nap. It was very bright, so he squinted his eyes and said "col."

*He loves to throw things. Daddy is super thrilled with his throwing abilities. He is hoping for a baseball player :) He is playing catch with daddy here:

Please excuse the loud voices on the videos. We are a loud family :)

Oops...1 Day Late AGAIN!

My schedule has been so off this week, but here is our Wednesday Toddler Tales. I am late again. Oh, well. Better late than never :)

*Chase discovered my shadow on the wall when I was changing his diaper. He was quite fascinated. He pointed it out again to me this morning.

*He likes bleu cheese and craisins.

*He complains when daddy leaves for work. He is so sad to see him go.

*He loves playing with the big kids at church. He tries to run and keep up with them.

*He is getting 4 molars all at once. Ouchy!

*He loves to "sweep."

*He loves to throw balls. He has pretty good aim. Daddy is liking the baseball potential. It looks like he is going to be a righty much to Uncle Johnny's disappointment.

That is all for now. I will work on posting some pictures. We had some really cute pro pics done. I will have to share.

Toddler Tuesday Tales...1 day late :)

I am going to attempt write about our toddler's tales on as many Tuesdadys as is possible. I missed it by one day this week, so today it is Wednesday Toddler Tales :). This is more for our benefit so we don't forget the many stages of Chase's development.

1. He tells us that he has "bee-boos." In Chase-speak, this means boo-boos. Usually he is pretty tough and doesn't cry about his boo-boos very often, but sometimes he likes us to comfort and console him. He comes to us and tells us in a whimpering voice that he has a "bee-boo."

2. He likes to help us push the cart when we are shopping.

3. He likes to help mommy carry her purse. He was dragging my purse all over Marshalls. It was very cute. Good thing I don't buy expensive purses.

4. He loves sleeping on a pillow.

5. He is in the throw yourself on the floor and scream stage. If you are trying to get somewhere and that is not on Chase's agenda at the moment, he will go into convulsions on the floor. It very much resembles someone having a seizure. Not pleasant at all :(

That is it for this week :)

Eating Breakthroughs!!

I am very happy to report that Chase has been eating Mandarins, lettuce with dressing, and brocolli. That is so exciting for me! It is so nice to have him eating some fruits and veggies! He likes to eat his veggies with a "poon." He likes to have his "poon" in hand even he is just picking the fruit or veggies up with his fingers. I love it!

17 Months...

Well, today Chase is 17 months old. This also happens to be Abe's Aunt Barbara's birthday. Happy Birthday, Aunt Barb!

Abe is putting him to bed right now. I here "Praise, Praise Him" right now through the monitor. That is still his favorite night-time song. He has a new favorite car song right now. He loves the "B-I-B-L-E." He asks to play it "gain." I think he mostly likes it because I sing it in a funny way. He laughs and has big smiles which makes playing and singing it over and over again worth it :)

He is learning more names. His new name this week is Aunt Katherine. He calls her "Kay-Kay." Too cute. She is coming over this week to babysit for the first time. Chase will have a blast!

One of Chase's favorite activites right now is turning light switches on and off. He likes to stand on his stool and flick the switches on and off. He will do this for long periods of time. He has also discovered electrical outlets. He has been trying to stick keys in the outlets. That would not be a good thing. He loves turning the printer on and off. He loves to help me with the microwave. He likes to open and close it and turn it on.

He is beginning to learn how to help me around the house. He has put a few things away for me. he will also go and get things out of our room when I ask him to. It is kind of cute to see him busy and helping mommy.

Overall, he is in a really cute and loveable stage. He is very attached to us right now. He loves us to hold him and just carry him around. It is an armload, but I am enjoying every minute of it :) We love our little man!!
