Happy Monday! I hope everyone is off to a great start this week!
We had a quiet weekend. It was just me and the boys, since Rylie went to Mama and Papa's house for a few days. It pretty much rained all weekend, so we just hung out around the house all weekend. It was nice, though. So nice, that I didn't even get out of my pajamas yesterday!
Bryce got all the attention over the weekend, and boy did he love it! He was almost like a different kid. He was super happy all weekend, and the "terrible two" tantrums were few and far between. I guess that is what happens when he gets to play with whatever he wants to, and doesn't have to worry about his big sister snatching it away from him. No, it isn't a one way street...the snatching goes both ways.
I don't get to spend that much one on one time with my little buddy. On the weekends we are usually all together, and then during the week Rylie always wants me to get her ready for school in the morning and get her ready for bed at night. I really enjoyed the time I had with Bryce over the weekend. Especially when Brian went to a Super Bowl party and it was just the two of us. He is such a fun little kid!
Bryce is starting to say some words now, and I love each time he says a new one. His favorite word these days is "NO!". Hmmm, I wonder where he learned that? Before this past week, when he wanted more of something he would always sign "more". Well now he signs it and says it. It is so cute! Oh, and I can't forget "Elmo". He dragged every Elmo doll in the house out and kept walking around saying "Melmo, Melmo". He tries to repeat everything you say too. We were doing a puzzle with different color fish, and he had fun saying "purple" and "yellow". He says "nose" and "eye" too, as he points to his nose and eyes. I have a feeling that pretty soon I'm going to have two little chatterboxes running around here.
Even though he doesn't talk much yet, the kid understands EVERYTHING you say. You can tell him to do something, and he does it. Throwing things away and cleaning up are his favorite chores right now. He was flailing around while I was trying to change his diaper and I told him that if he didn't hold still he would hit his head on the back of his dresser, and he pointed to it and said "Owwwww". Needless to say, he held still after that. And even when you don't think he is listening, he is. He was engrossed in his dinner the other night and I said something to Brian about how Chloe will probably get fat since she doesn't have to share the kids' hand outs anymore, and Bryce looked at us and gave her a piece of his food. Stinker!
OK, so this post turned out to be a post about Bryce, I guess. I had such a great time with him over the weekend, and I'm still so happy about the quality one on one time we got to have together. He is such a cute, funny, and smart little kid! I just love him so much!
Here are a couple of pictures for your viewing enjoyment. Just because I think they're really stinking cute...
I'd love to know how you spent your weekend. Did anyone have good weather? I think pretty much everyone I know was either snowed-in or rained-in. And for those who watched the Super Bowl, did your team win?
Have a great week, my friends!
