Those magic words…

Posted in ...sigh..., Milestone at 10:16 pm by supertinyguy

Loe put Beck to bed, only to have him make a ruckus 10 minutes later. Papa went in to lay down the law. Here’s a detailed transcript:

Papa: Are you OK, Boo?

Beck: Hug?

(Ok, that’s frappin’ awesome!!)

B: Wa-wa?

P: You need water?

B: Uh-huh…hug?

I gave him the sippy cup and he put his arms up to hug me. How cool is that!? I picked him up and he put his arms around me and gave me a hug, laying his head down and doing that pat thing.

When he raised his head:

P: Are you ready to go to sleep?

B: Yeah. Bed?

I put him down, covered him up.

P: ‘Night Boo. I love you.

I turned towards the door.

B: (quietly) Ya you…

(Music swells)

Hey Hey, we’re the Monkey-ahs…

Posted in Baby Babble, Frickin' Cute, Puzzling at 10:03 pm by supertinyguy

Over the last few weeks, Beck has been adding words at an alarming and charming pace. Sometimes, there is a clash of terms. “Monkey” is currently “Monkey-ahs”.

For example, his growing obsession with Monsters, Inc. For a bit it was “Monsties”, but it has crossed over to “Monkey-ahs” for the most part.

This Sunday morning, Boo excitedly asked me, “Monkey-ahs! Monkey-ahs!…” I located the DVD. Then is was “Ho’d! Ho’d!” He wanted to carry the disc and then put it in the player. He gets so excited, he hits the buttons too many times, making him get more excited because nothing is happening. I love watching the wee hands…no doubt the hands of a surgeon…working to put the DVD in and pushing the tray to make it retract.

The DVD in, he runs over to the couch. “Sit! Sit” He climbs up and pats the cushion next to him, so I sit down and we start to watch the flick. I grabbed the blanket and covered our legs and Beck leaned up against me and rested his head on my chest. He does this little thing where he puts a hand on you and kind of pats you with his fingers. It kills me, every time. I got, like, 15 minutes of that.

Sunday morning, piled up on the couch with my son, coffee and “monkey-ahs”. Sucked to be anyone else…

As if hearing it wasn’t enough…

Mommy is a crafty mom. Even though we hear “NO!” a thousand times a day, we want to make sire he remembers the script, each morning.

This is directly across from his crib…

Your dad is a sap…

Posted in ...sigh..., Dad... at 10:33 pm by supertinyguy

So, I sat there today, doing all the outstanding things Beck’s dad does, when that Harry Chapin song “Cats in the Cradle” came on the radio. Now all that know me are well aware that I’m a walking death machine. I’m the kinda guy that women love and men want to be. Honestly, I’ve leapt from perfectly good airplanes and gone to classified depths in a submarine. I’ve got my “Man Card”.

That song made me all weepy. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard that song in my life, but now it has a whole new meaning. I hope I’m the kinda of dad that can have a catch with my super tiny guy and will have the presence of mind to know when that takes precedence over toeing the line for The Man.

On a lighter…and ironic… note, this was the number one song, preceding “Cats”…

Comfortable at any speed…

Heading over to a friend’s birthday party, we turned around and found this:

Snoozing at a 90-degree angle must be more comfy than we think.

Our Toddler of terror fought the nap for a half an hour, but I guess the Mimi on the head trick works!

Boo-foot in The Park

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:08 pm by supertinyguy

Beck and mommy while frolicking in the park found the mother of all leaf piles. Cuteness and frolicking ensued. Enjoy!!

Look at those teeth!! Ugh, how can you not cower in fear that this much cute is loose and virtually unregulated!?

Honestly, I wasn’t there. But crap I just marvel at this tyke. He is firmly, and apparently un-apologetically, in the terrible twos yet continues to bring laughs and smiles. OK I’ll hush…
