Stories About My Boy


I'm not doing month updates about Wyatt anymore, but he's been changing so much in the past couple months!  He's had a speech explosion, and we can have little conversations now, and he does cute things all the time - I'm loving this age!  I just wanted to write down a few of the things that I don't want to forget about this time in our lives.

Wyatt is so into cars right now, and when he talks about his "carses" is cracks me up!  I think he got the plural of "carses" from "horses".  He loves both.

My sweet blog friend, Melanie, sent us a package a couple months ago with headbands she made for Gwen and foam letters spelling out Wyatt's name for the bathtub!  He loves them, and it's been a great way to teach him the letters in his name.  He quickly learned to name all of them and put them in the correct order on the bathtub wall.

When we started teaching Wyatt animal noises we taught him the noise a moose makes (kind of a grunting sound), but what we didn't teach him was the sound a deer makes . . . yet somehow he figured it out.  Now when he sees the deer in our neighborhood he says a "meh, meh" noise like he's trying to do a deer call - I'm thinking maybe he got it from a hunting show?  I don't know.  You can tell he's a mountain boy.

Chocolate milk is his favorite drink right now, and his favorite snack is "chocolate toast".  He will often dig the nutella and bread out of the cupboard and bring them to me, asking for "chokah toest" (think Canadian accent).

We went to the park several weeks ago as a family, and there was this cute little girl there - she was three years old, but a little shorter than Wyatt.  She kept following Wyatt all around the park, trying to get him to play with her.  At one point Wyatt was standing there and she came up and started talking at him - he just gave his shy smile, pursed his lips, grabbed her hand, and started walking with her toward the slide mid-sentence.  It made Derek and me laugh!

When we're driving in the car Wyatt calls out things that he sees.  A couple months ago he spotted some flowers while I was driving and kept saying "Look, Mom, flowers!" until I looked and said he was right!  Now he does that with everything - tractors, trees, deer, birds, trains.  Each time he does it he acts like it's the coolest thing he's ever seen, and he will insistently point it out like he doesn't want me to miss it!

I think it's cute how he always wants to point the flowers out to me.  We were in a parking lot one day and he looked around and couldn't find any, so he says "Where'd the flowers go?"  We also drove by my uncle's memorial the other day after my family had put some flowers up.  Wyatt spotted them and pointed them out to my mom and me, and then as we drove away he waved and called out "Bye bye flowers!"  It was sweet.

Derek and Wyatt ran to the store a couple weeks ago, and they went through a car wash.  We don't go through car washes that often, and it scared Wyatt - he started crying and Derek was trying to comfort him.  When the doors opened as the car wash was ending, Derek said "Look, we're all clean now," and then he asked Wyatt if the car wash was scary.  Wyatt said "That was scary," and then all the way home he kept saying "Scary, scary.  All clean!  Scary . . ." over and over again - poor little guy couldn't stop talking about it!  Now we have to be careful when we say the word "scary" because if Wyatt hears he will look around and try to figure out what we're talking about.

Lately Wyatt keeps calling out to things.  If he sees a horse, or bird, or deer, or anything like that he'll say "Come horse!  Come here horse!" while slapping his hand against the side of his leg.  He's been paying attention when Derek calls the dogs.

Wyatt really loves Winnie the Pooh (aka: Pooh Bear, aka: Pooh Pooh Bear) right now, and we were watching an episode the other day before his nap.  Tigger had the hiccups, and Wyatt kept laughing and hiccuping and hopping all over the room.  He copied every single thing Tigger did in the entire show.  I think we know who his favorite character is!

Wyatt loves listening to his Donut Man CD, and he knows the words to all his Bible songs!  I love that the truth is soaking into his little heart even at this young age.  The other day Derek and I were singing one of his songs (because they are abnormally catchy and get stuck in our heads), and when we paused Wyatt started singing the next line!  His favorite song right now is the "angel song" (All Night, All Day).  He requests it every night before he goes to sleep, and it's adorable when he tries to sing along.

For "I love you", Wyatt says "La, loo".  It's the cutest thing ever.  Derek took Wyatt with him to run errands the other day while Gwen and I stayed home.  Derek says when they pulled out of the driveway Wyatt called out "La-loo, Mama, bye bye, la-loo!" and kept waving and blowing kisses!  It melted my heart, and made me feel loved.

The other day I got home from a baby shower, and Wyatt came up to the door as I was coming in and said "Is that mom?", then "Hi mom" when he saw me.  Later Derek called him to go upstairs and he came over and knocked on my door and said "Comin' Mom?" before he went upstairs.

Lately if I've been running around, doing too much around the house during the day, Wyatt will come over to me and say "Sit with me?", and he isn't satisfied until I sit down on the couch and cuddle with him for a few minutes.  How can I say no to that?  I love that he reminds me to slow down when I need to.

He just has the cutest little personality, and I'm loving this age!  He says and does the sweetest things, and I just love the little person he's becoming.  He's already seeming more and more like a little boy and less like a toddler, but I don't want to forget all the sweet things he does right now.  I don't want to forget these precious days with my boy.

What a precious little boy. I love that you recap highlights from the last month with him. It's a great way to keep a "journal" of how he's growing and changing so rapidly.

What a cute age! My cousins babies are right around, same age as Wyatt, and developing vocabulary like crazy too. It's so funny to hear the things they say, and surprising some of the things they pick up on!

Sarah said...

So many of these things reminds me of Josie. "Where'd ___ go?" with a concerned look on her face, calling for mom, the "come sit with me's". They are so fun at this age!!

PS - I used to hate the word poop too ... Until I was a mom. :)
