Tuckered Out

Porter's school is having a book fair next week and my neighbor and I are running the whole thing. We spent all day yesterday at the school setting up the books and getting everything ready. Zach and Andrew had to be there with me and as a result, Andrew never got a decent nap (20 minutes in the uncomfortable stroller just doesn't cut it). When we finally got home at 4:30, Andrew was pretty active so I didn't feel the need to put him down for a nap. I went upstairs to do some things while Porter and Zach played the PS2. I had to go downstairs for something and found Andrew on the floor fast asleep. I did pick him up and put him in his bed...

Andrew's sure turned into a character. His favorite thing to do lately is scare people. He will hide somewhere, then come out with him arms extended and growling. Then he'll hide again and do it all over. He also says "Cheese!" when he sees the camera. He has to see the picture after you've taken it, as well. He loves to read books - sometimes we read the same ones over and over. Some of his favorites are Pajama Time!, Moo, Baa, La, La, La, and Doggies by Sandra Boynton and some Lift-the-flap Maisy books we have. He's getting to be quite the talker. The other day he was doing a puzzle and after he would put a piece in, he would clap and cheer. After one particular piece, he said, "I did it!" Other words he says are "out", "all done", "doggie!", "shoes", and "daddy!" (which Rhett particulary likes to hear when he gets home from work). He is truly a joy to have around the house. We sure have fun!

Andrew is such a doll. I know boys aren't supposed to be dolls, but those eyes and that smile and his tiny body...he is a doll.
