Colt 2.5

Colt has been a hoot lately. This post is mainly a list of things I want to remember about this current stage of his life. He's such a joy to be around, well, most of the time - he still has bouts of the Terrible Twos when this little monster appears out of nowhere :)

Colt asks about 100x a day, "What's that sound?" Considering there are about 20 noises going on at once, this question is sometimes very difficult to answer. And he keeps pressing for an answer until the right noise is identified.

He is really into trains right now. He loves reading books about them, watching shows about them, etc. But he's also into all the other vehicles too: police cars, ambulances, fire trucks, airplanes, boats.

He loves saying the same prayer every night. "Dear God, Thank you for Malachi, M's mom, M's dad, M's b-day party. Thank you for Berkley, Owen Massey, Cooper..." and names several friends, and usually their mom and dad too.

Colt has figured out how to get the toy he wants from Levi. He'll run to get a "replacement" toy and will say, "Levi want play with book now" as he snatches the ball out of Levi's hand. Usually Levi doesn't mind too much, though it seems he's catching on and protesting a bit more now. Guess I need to step in as the parent and sort it out :)

He's started using 4 and 5 word sentences that are pretty fun to listen to. They sound so grown up coming out of his mouth. After you answer one of his questions, he'll respond, "oh." Always.

Much to my dismay, Colt recently stopped calling us Mommy and Daddy. We are now just plain old Mom and Dad. I really am grieving over this development.

He loves to play chase, shoot baskets, explore the backyard, crawl after Levi, go to school, get the newspaper with Daddy, ask for yogurt first thing every morning, and bake cookies.

We love our Colt!
