this little boy…
is always keeping me on my toes.
once i think an area/item is protected from Elijah’s curiosity, he is already figuring out a new thing he can take apart and Elijahfy.

this little boy…
is becoming so independent!
he knows what he wants, when he wants it, and he can do it all by.him.self!
don’t you dare try to help him walk down the stairs.
it may be the last thing you do…

this little boy… 
has decided lunch is now at 10:30 every day. 
hot dogs & soup have been the recent requests for his odd brunches :)

and on that note
this little boy…
eats allllllll the time!
not even exaggerating.
he eats every 5 minutes i swear.
and screams asks for every kind of food/snack we have.
hot dogs
macaroni & cheese
fruit snacks…
and this was just yesterday.
[and all before naptime. no lie.]

this little boy…
loves to be tickled lately! 
i think it’s cause “Uhnkew Dawwin” would tickle him so now he requests it.
”Tickew meee????” is his little request each morning.
if you insist little man…

this little boy…
is in love with Mickey Mouse.
after just one episode of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse he now asks for it once every hour.
{he doesn’t understand TV schedules yet}
guess it’s time to take him to Disneyland! :)

this little boy…
tries so hard to be the best little helper.
he likes to help with laundry, the dishes, and taking out the trash.
though his helping usually makes things worse… i commend his efforts.

and this little boy…
can totally and completely make me want to pull all of my hair out.
but he can also make me the happiest i have ever been.
i guess that’s the basic definition of motherhood right?
{and the definition of terrible twos…}

don’t you just want to kiss those cheeks though??
that’s basically what i do all day.
[until he slaps me away. quite literally slaps. that’s the terrible two part manifesting itself.]

What a cutie! I love the cowboy hat. He sounds exactly like Elise right now--some mixture of adorable and out of control. :)
