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:
