Yes, we have a touch of the two's here. From the throwing food off his high chair to saying "No" in a perfect Chinese accent, it's been a little naughty around here.
However, disciplining someone who is so delightful and fun isn't easy. Also, how do you get upset with someone who looks so cute in his pajamas?!
Or someone who pats and loves on his elephant?
Or someone who plays cars and makes car noises....total boy!
Or someone who doesn't want to nap and then falls asleep sitting up! Yes....he is very flexible! One of the characteristics of Down Syndrome.
See the puffy pants in his crib?
See the clothes on the bed and the unrepentant look on his face? He got them off the window sill and threw them in his crib and on the floor. They are now farther away from his reach!
It's funny to see how he tests us. Our helper doesn't like him to put his hands in his mouth and she is always telling him no. So as soon as she walks in the door, he looks at her and puts his hand in his mouth. Testing, testing 1 2 3!
For us, he goes for the computer cord. That gets an immediate reaction from us...just what he wants!
One more thing that is cracking me up. When we were in Thailand last year, we bought this beautiful celedon Nativity Set.
I've been looking forward to putting it out all year.
It's really lovely....except for one little thing....
One of the wise men appears to have an executioner's hood on. I'm thinking that's not part of the usual nativity set.
