I have now been shown equal thanks for my latest undertaking- the jeep bed. All I can say is thank goodness Pat Pat surprised us with the rug for Wilson's room, or the poor child would have nowhere to sleep!!
This is where he now sleeps. I've already gone in and made the dogs come out and put him back in his bed once tonight (this photo is from nap time today). We found him like this this morning and assumed he'd fallen out, but apparently he just prefers to sleep on the rug. At least Tate's finally got a place to lay his head!
(PS- this one's for you, Pat Pat- I have captured the new "accent" on audio- "what's thiuuus?")
(PPS- sorry the video's a bit squashy. Yours truly can't quite grasp the idea that you can't video in "portrait". I've learned how to rotate the video when I make this goof, but it just makes the subject matter look as though it's gained about 50lbs. Coincidence that I'm never in the videos? I think not!!)

Okay, one more post before I go to bed. This picture just popped up on my Google Desktop. It is one of our favorites of the dogs (taken on our old digital camera- sorry if it turns out a little "pixelly"). It was taken the day we brought Tate home. Look how proud Jack is! Shortly after this, Tate hopped on Jack's blanket and Jack was pulling him around the house, it was too cute! It's hard to believe that that cute, little, innocent, white fluff ball turned into Tate- boy, oh boy, if we'd only know then!!

I've re-posted the train video. Sorry for those of you who may have tried it earlier and it took FOREVER- I forgot to compress it first. I'm still getting the whole video on the blog thing down. I'll also add a transcript below of what the little man is saying, for those of you not fluent in Wilsonease.

Wilson introducing Big Car & Daisy- no one else can get this close to the rabbit!
Wilson shows off his talent of delicately balancing a ball on his index finger.
Time has been filled since then with several other discoveries. He has learned that if he can't get my attention by calling for "mama" he can resort to screaming "Maggie, Maggie, Maggie" from his room. He's figured out that there are other genres of music besides the "wiggle song" which he used to ask for everytime the car cranked. Now he asks for "A-lan Jack-son". We watch "Piggy" (Babe) now instead of Big Car (any of the 4 Herby movies). He says "Go Raiders" in honor of his uncle whenever he sees a football player or football game (high school, college or NFL). With all the Halloween festivities around in his world, he's picked up on all kinds of new phrases. "Spooky man" and "I not scared" or "I not scared a you spooky man" "trick or treat". I have more acorns inside my house than the two trees in the front yard can possibly produce. He's making some real progress with potty training. I actually left the house for a brief errand the other day with him in big boy pants. It was the scariest trip to ACE Hardware I've ever been on. He loves the hardware store because they have cats. So after we found what I needed, we went on a search for the cats to pet them. When he was done with that he promptly asked where the fish were. I had to explain that it was a hardware store- not a pet store. He's also making lots of progress in swimming, actually moving through the water a little.
Today, my mom and I took him to the Fair. Here are some pics from that adventure:
