I don't know why, but Chad and Heath got a wild hair and decided to train for a half-marathon coming up in April. Hey! I'm all for it...it's a weekend trip to Dallas! But they have been working so hard for this and I am proud of them. Yesterday they ran on 114th street from Upland to University. We're talking from the new Walmart to Tinsletown. That seems like such a long way to run, but it isn't even half the distance of the half-marathon. So if you see a couple of guys running around town honk and wave at them:)
That in less than a month my baby boy will be two years old! He absolutely has his dad, Taylor, Averi, and me wrapped around his little finger...as it should be:) But he is growing and learning so much. I want to hold onto every second because I know how fast this time goes by. Here is what he is up to:
He has fallen in love with Barney. Or "Bah-Ney" as he likes to call it. I refused to introduce him to the crazy, purple dinosaur. It was Chad's grandmother that started it all. A few of her old VHS videotapes and Connor was hooked:)
As much I loathe love hearing "I love you, you love me..." ALL DAY LONG, I have to admit it is cute watching Connor get so excited about it. So we gave in and bought him a Barney doll...one that sings no less. Whatever happened to the good old-fashioned stuffed animals that don't do anything but sit there? Needless to say Connor has Barney with him at all times...until bedtime that is. Every night I tuck the two of them into bed and every morning Barney is face down on the floor. I guess even Connor has had enough by then!
Connor can sing "La-La" in a high octave and a low octave. At random times throughout the day he can be heard singing "La-La" in his low octave. He especially likes to sing "La-La" in between saying words or if he gets real excited.
Connor refuses to call Donna "Dondi"! He calls her Donna. No matter how many times we tell him DON-DI, he says DON-NA. I think it's funny:)
And because this week was love week, here are some pictures of our Valentine's Day parties.
It appears that our son has been deprived of all things "boy" because this is his favorite thing to play with...Averi's purse. He carries it with him all the time. He loves to dump out the contents and then put everything back in. You never know what's lurking in the purse. I think right now it is home to a collection of rocks and dice. I know Chad is so proud!
