I haven't blogged in a while ... I just really haven't felt like I had anything to say. It is not that my life is boring. Life is NEVER boring with a two-year-old. I just kept thinking that I need to come up with a clever story or a monumental event to write about. I guess I am still waiting.
Two of my friend's babies are turning one next week. I can't believe they are going to be a year old already. It reminds me of how fast my son is growing. For the longest time he would only speak with one word answers or phrases. Now he is stringing words together. He says things like, "sit, momma," "up momma," eat, momma," "down, momma" and "sing sunshine." You get the idea. He also repeats everything that we say. So needless to say this has curbed the swearing in our house. It is amazing to watch how his brain works and how he learns something new everyday. If you ask him how old he is, he will tell you he is two, if you ask what color eyes he has, he will tell you blue, he will tell you that he has brown hair and wants Batman for Christmas.
We are all very excited for Halloween. (D-Man was conceived after a Halloween party in 2005.) We decorated our house with orange lights, fake cobwebs and spiders and skulls. We got D-Man's costume, he is going to be a devil, we thought it was fitting for him this year. We are also very excited to head out into the cold to go trick or treating. I remember loving this as a kid. Every year my Dad would take me and I would get so much candy that I would be eating it until Christmas. And, I never remember minding the cold. D is still pretty little so we may just limit our trek to our neighborhood.
