Conversations with a 2 year old

I was laying down with Eli the other day and I guess I was hungry because my stomach started making some rumbling noises.
Eli said "baby Lily making noises in there?"
I laughed and said "yes, I think she is"
Eli replied matter of factly "she's pushing all the buttons"
I just had to laugh!

You'll Poke Your (Dad's) Eye Out

Eli did it

In the living room

With the screw driver

We were assembling Eli's new dresser yesterday when we had an accident.
Eli was "helping" Ben put together one of the drawers with his favorite tool, the screwdriver.
All of a sudden Ben is squirming on the floor, and saying Eli poked him in the eye.
Eli is screaming because Ben had pushed him back a little, and he was freaked out because Daddy is rolling on the floor in pain. I asked to see Ben's eye, hoping Eli hit him near the eye, nope, Ben had blood dripping from his eye.
I didn't know weather we could go to Urgent Care, or if we had to see an eye doctor. I pick up the phone to call Kaiser, but it's ringing. I answer and tell my Brother "I can't talk now Ben's bleeding from his eye". Kaiser informed us that Urgent Care was equipped to handle eye injuries, so we piled in the car and rushed off.
The triage nurse asked a couple of questions, "was it near your eye or in your eyeball?", we had to respond "in the eyeball", "was it the handle, or the pointy end?", again worst case scenario, "the pointy end".
They got us in pretty quick and the Doctor said that Ben only had damage to the white part of his eye. It shouldn't effect his vision at all, and he's lucky it didn't hit anything important. They said it might hurt a lot, but it should heal quickly, it might look worse before it gets better.
Well needless to say when we got home we put all of the screw drivers away in the garage. Eli won't be allowed to use any real tools for quite awhile.

We had a fun day at the Zoo on Saturday!
Eli loved this big polar bear, he hugged him and gave him a high five.
This gives us hope for a picture with Santa later this year.

Caves and Potty Training

Day 3 of potty training equals day 3 of cleaning poopy pants.
Fortunately he's been doing great with the pee.
Eli only had once accident on Monday and one again on Tuesday, today he made it dry the whole day!

He has also decided the coat closet is his cave.
(we've officially given up on pants for the time being)
He keeps asking us to "come see baby's cave".
He brings animals, blankets and flashlights in there and shuts the door.
He desperately wants me to go in there with him, but I really don't feel like trying to fit my 26 week pregnant body into the bottom of a coat closet.

Backyard Fun

First Make a big mess.
Note: Eli uses the broom to spread things around, not clean them up.

Make sure to have fun!

Don't forget to clean up.
Usually he just puts his hands and feet in the pool to rinse them off, but if he gets really dirty I guess he has to take more extreme measures.
