Sunrise, Sunset

Brandon colors now. Mostly he takes the crayons out of the box and puts them in a basket, or a bowl, or the compartment under the seat of his ride-on toy; occasionally he'll chew on one, resulting in a black or magenta mouth and face; sometimes he peels the labels off; and sometimes he colors on his head or his arm or the living room chair (which, thankfully has a machine-washable slipcover - thank you Ikea); but sometimes the crayons actually touch paper.

I can't get over how grown-up he is. Yesterday after dinner, not only did he stoop down under the table to "help" me pick up the bits of food he had dropped - he actually put the pieces on the table. He really was helping.

The other day we went to a playgroup at a neighbor's house. Naptime was quickly approaching, and he started to get sleepy. Did he throw a tantrum? No. He touched my lap to get my attention, then picked up his shoes and sat down next to the front door. Communication is a glorious thing.

Yay Brandon! Imagine, soon they will actually be saying real sentences made with real words. Crazy huh?
