I Did It!

For years I've wanted to enter a sketch in the local Fair, just for fun. This year I finally made the time to do it. Having a deadline forced me to finish something for once. :) It was so much fun for the kids to see Mommy's art at the fairgrounds! I might even do it again someday.

Caution: Toddler in Progress

Abram turned 2 years old yesterday. It hardly seems possible. Remember when he was born?

A glimpse at Abram's life right now:

He is learning new words at a quick pace, copying everything he hears. His favorite words are milk, buppy (blankie), train, plane and truck.

His favorite book is The Little Engine That Could.

He loves to be outside, take walks, and swing on the swingset.

He sings himself to sleep in his crib every night.

He can sing "Praise to the Man." He also sings the chorus of "All Creatures of Our God and King" at the top of his lungs.

When we drive over a bridge, he yells, "Woohoo! Wheeeeee!" When we get to the end of the bridge, he says "All done wheeee."

He does NOT like water, except in the bathtub. He is deathly afraid of sprinklers.

Last Sunday he disrupted Sacrament meeting when he got his head stuck between the pew and the wall. It took four adult men to free him.

His favorite toys are cars and trucks. He calls them his "hot cars." He takes a handful of them everywhere, even to bed.

When Daddy leaves for work in the morning, Abram waves and says "Bye, Dad, have a good work today!"

He is very polite. When I give him food he says, "Thanks, Mom."

He has a delightful personality. He is generous, happy, and energetic. Except when he isn't. :)

Grandma gave him a Tonka dump truck for his birthday. He calls it his "thank you grandma."

Jacob gave him a necklace that he made in Boise State colors.

Apparently he does have a feminine side.

Happy birthday, bugaroo.
