My Confession–The Ice Cream Cone

So this is where I publically admit that while I try to have my child eat healthy and I do really limit the sugar intake, sometimes I do let him have a treat.  I’ve always said that I would not ever take my child to a certain establishment which will remain nameless and I would always tell him that their food was subpar.  My theory was that if he never got a chance to sample the cuisine food he would never know what he was missing. While visiting  my parents we went to this nameless establishment and had ice-cream cones.  Did you know that they give kids their own baby cone?  This boy was in heaven with his own cone!

I blame the grandparents. Winking smile  Anyone else out there that enjoys fast food every now and then?

My Confession - S’mores

I came home one afternoon with a s’more on a plate wrapped in plastic.  I set it on the counter and didn’t think much of it until it discovered my little friend was sampling my treat.   Honestly I was not really planning on eating eat because it was made with marshmallow fluff.   After working at camp for a few years I am a bit of a s’more snob.  I could not resist taking a few pictures and letting him try the sweet treat.

Grandpa Fish

When Kyton saw this picture he said “ Grandpa fish!!”  Despite my dad being a sea monster he recognized him.

We visited the aquarium this summer with my sister Sharon, but these photos are from our trip last Christmas.

  Kyton is sporting longer hair since I cut it right after we got home from vacation, and Dylan has a much different look at the moment.

They had a touch pool that Kyton loved.  My sister Sharon is making a rare blog appearance.  She normally hides from pictures.

2 years 2 months

Kyton is still very active, but just as my mom predicted he has gotten easier in the last few months.  He seems to really understand what we are telling him, and he also grasps the consequences.  I always get great reports from anyone who watches him, which is always a surprise to me.  As long as he has a good outlet for his energy he is fine, so we stay busy.

He is still very social.   He loves going to the childcare in the gym. When I pick him up he asks me to come in every time and introduces me to his friends that he has made and shows me how much fun he’s had playing basketball. 
He loves trains, cars and trucks.  He can identify cars that are the same model as daddy’s while in his car seat when they are going the opposite direction, even when they are different colors.  I don’t even think I can do that!

He seems to have a very large vocabulary, but not the articulation to be easily understood.  For the most part I know what he is staying, and Dylan and others understand the majority of time.  Other times it is apparent that he is really saying something, but I have no idea what.  His favorite phrases at the moment are  “How do you open?”  “Oh no” “keys please” and come here, pronounced "mere."  He loves singing the worship song by 10,000 reasons Matt Redman "Oh my soul."  He asks for "more oh my soul."  He loves to pray before meals, and sometimes during meals, and at the end of meals.

It’s crazy how he picks up our mannerisms. The other day he asked for the food pantry to be opened, then he stood at the door staring inside, tapping on a shelf saying “let’s see… What do you want to eat?”  He sure knows when he’s being funny or cute and he knows how to grab attention in the situation…. I wonder where he get’s that from?  (Dylan is an actor) At the moment every color is green.  At the library they did an activity where they pretended every color was green, and the kids had to correct the color.  I wonder if that confused him.

We are so lucky to have such a sweet boy with such a big personality!
