Funny Boy!

As I am sitting here writing this, Patrick is in the kitchen with Bama and Ace. He put his little pot on the counter and is taking dog food out of the dog food bowl, and is putting it in his pot. He says that he is making soup for Bama and Ace. lol Such the funny boy!

Tonight he played hide-n-seek for the first time. It was so cute!!! He went and hid behind this chair underneath his easel. And Lenny would walk around the house saying "Where is Patrick" Is he in the bathroom?" Patrick would snicker and say Nooo. This went on for a bit until Lenny "found" Patrick. Then Lenny went to hide, and me and Patrick looked for him. It was so great to see and experience this with Patrick. Every new "First" that he experiences is such a joy. I feel so blessed that I have been able to stay home with him, and watch him grow, and change on a daily basis. I sometimes want to hit the pause button. He is at such a fun age right now, and is still so innocent.

His favorite phrase of the moment is "Go to Walmart, and find it." I don't really know when he started saying this, but I find it sooooo funny. The other day I was looking for his shoes, and Patrick says "Go to Walmart, and find it." We are out of icecream, and Patrick says, "Go to Walmart and find it." Anytime we lose something, are out of something, etc. Patrick's solution is Go to Walmart. I really think he should advertise for Walmart! This morning was classic! He woke up with a very bad case of bed head! So, I attempted to comb out all of Patrick's knots which he did not like one bit. He was fussing, and I told him that I was sorry, but I had to get the knots out of his hair. Once guess as to what his response was : "Go to Walmart, get new hair". Only if it were that easy...

I know I have not blogged in a while, but it is hard for me to keep up with all the smart, funny, crazy things that Patrick does on a daily basis. I will try to do better at writing because I never want to forget these amazing times that I get to spend with my little boy.

Things that Go Bump in the Night

The other night, after everyone was in bed, I decided to get on the computer for a bit. Patrick had been sleeping for several hours. The house was completely quiet when I heard a bump, actually it was a loud thud, come from Patrick's room. I thought that maybe he had fallen out of his bed, so I opened his door. And sure enough there was Patrick on the floor, climbing back into his bed with a somewhat dazed and confused look on his face. He climbed back in his bed and laid back down. I asked if he was ok, and he said yes, and then told me to close his door. The next morning I asked him if he fell out of his bed. He said Yes, and I asked him what happened. He said that he fell on the floor. Bless his little heart. I somehow do not think that was the first time that happened. But he didn't even seem phased by it. And for those of you wondering, Yes I do have rails on the side of his bed. But he rarely sleeps in his bed the right way. He usually sleeps with his head at the foot of his bed. And he occasionally sleeps horizontally on the bed. He still manages to sleep 10-12 hrs a night. So, I don't care which way he sleeps!

So tonight, Brandon was outlasted by Jeanine, and I was disappointed. Kara was indifferent, as she liked both dancers, but I feel Brandon was by far the better of the two. Patrick has taken quite a liking to the show and is constantly asking us to play his favorite dances over again. Tonight, his favorite Bollywood piece was on, and like a broken record, there was Patrick, “Again….AGAIN!” What a lil stinker. And then, after the show, when Kara was feeding him, he was making the funniest faces tonight at dinner! Below are just a few. He really likes to please his audience, so he will always repeat a funny number! Also gotta give props to the birthday boy! Ace turns 1 on Monday!

Our Little Gymnast

We recently signed Patrick up for a gym class. He starts next weekend, and we are pretty excited! In the meantime, Patrick has been preparing for his first class by practicing his forward rolls. About a week ago, Patrick began trying to do forward rolls. He puts his hands down in front of him and then puts his head down. Much to my dismay, he does in fact attempt to roll forward, but always ends up rolling somewhat diaganolly. Lenny and I tell him not to attempt it unless he has mama or dada's help. But Patrick is quite determined. This morning Patrick was sitting in the computer chair watching Thomas the Train, and I was sitting on the couch. Out of the corner of my eye, I see Patrick hit the floor. He falls on his knees with his head on the floor. I ask if he is ok in which he replies Yes. I ask if he just did that on purpose, and he again replies Yes. So, I then ask him what he was trying to do, and he responds "Forward Roll"! lol He then gets up and says Try Again! I told him that we do not under any circumstances do forward roll off of chairs...such the dare devil!
