Growing up

Eli wants to be a grown up, and do everything grown-ups do. Some favorites are sweeping, dusting, cooking, driving (of course we don't really let him drive, although it's still a fight every time we get in the car), vacuuming, using lotion (too bad he puts it in his hair) and going potty. He wants to sit on the toilet all day, but he hasn't actually done anything in the potty yet. I get tired of sitting in there with him, and he doesn't want me to leave. The other day I went out for a minute and came back in to find him "reading" Fortune Magizine.

On a side note:
He had his two year old check up today and measured 39 inches (over 100th percentile) and weighs 33 pounds (83rd percentile). This means he grew 3 inches in the last 6 months and gained 5 pounds. I'm not sure how he gained any weight since he's such a picky eater, it must be all the Ranch Dressing!

Eli's thinks it's great to look at pictures on the computer. We show him our blog, friend's blogs and have recently started taking requests for searches on Google Images. Mostly he wants to see excavators, cranes, trash trucks and windmills, but he'll throw in the occasional bear or tiger. He usually asks very nicely if he wants something, "more crackers please", but the other night he pulled out a new one.

For those of you who don't speak Eli -

Eli: More trash trucks honey

Cement trucks

More trash trucks, no

Cement trucks

Michelle: Cements trucks

Eli: Yeah

Michelle: or trash trucks

Eli: No

Michelle: Cement trucks

Eli: Okay

A break in the weather

The poor kid hasn't played outside in weeks, I guess he forgot he's supposed to keep the sand inside the sandbox.

Cooking up a storm

Eli loves all of the accessories he got to go with his kitchen for Christmas. He mostly make us toast with butter and jelly, but occasionally the menu varies and we get soup or cookies!

Advent Calendar

I got crafty this year and made an Advent Calendar. I saw the idea in Parent's Magazine, and afterwards thought of more exciting ideas. We could have made a Snowman and decorated him, or a Nativity and put different people in everyday, Santa Clause........Oh well, we'll have to wait until next year for more crafty fun.
