The New Who's On First!!

Conversation between Dylan (2 1/2) and his friend Cayden (3 1/2).  They were looking out the window while Cayden's mommy was walking up.

Dylan: Look, Mommy!
Cayden: No, my mommy.
Dylan: My mommy?
Cayden: No, my mommy...not your mommy.
Dylan: Not your mommy?
Cayden: No, my mommy.
Dylan: My mommy?
Cayden: No, my mommy...not your mommy!
Dylan: Not your mommy?

This went on a couple more rounds until...

Cayden: No...not your mommy.
Dylan: Oh...your mommy!

Seriously the new Who's On First!!

Money, Money, Money, Money...Money!

Recently I took Dylan to pick out his first piggy bank.  He chose a piggy that looks like a is adorable.  He has been earning pennies for chores done around the house such as getting the eggs from the coop, watering the garden, helping with laundry, and putting toys away.  When asked what he is saving for he replied "Cookies".  This is so hilarious to me since we don't typically buy cookies from the store to begin with.
Yesterday, walking through a parking lot, we found a quarter and a penny.  Dylan was so excited especially when I explained that Papa and Mommy like to look for money on the ground too.  When we got home he added the money to his bank right away.
Today, as we were cleaning out the vehicles I told Dylan he could keep any money he found.  He was thrilled to add almost four dollars of loose change to his piggy! While we were sorting the coins I asked him who he thought was on the penny.  He examined it and said "Jo Jo".  He is so cute!!

He is so funny.

Little Trickster

While Dylan was watering the plants in the garden it appeared that the hose got wrapped around one of the posts. 
Dylan: "Mommy...need help!"
I step into the garden to offer my assistance.
Dylan: "I get you mommy!!"
That little trickster turned and sprayed me with a big grin on his face.
Such a mischief him.

Nature Loving Boy

My nature loving boy was so cute yesterday on our walk. He was saying hello to all the ants and butterflies. Then he literally knelt down kissed a patch of grass and tousled the top of it as though it was hair. A friendly little gesture that continued down the grassy path. Such a happy boy and sweet as can be.

Dylan's Baby

The last few nights Dylan has adopted Cece's little pink glow worm as his own. He carries her around and calls her baby. It is the cutest thing ever! He tends to her every need. He tells us when she is crying and then proceeds to nurse her, burp her, change her diaper and put her to bed. Last night he read her a story and showered her with kisses. She is now his nightly companion and even sleeps with him. He is such a good big brother and so full of love.
