That frog just stood up and talked!

Ok, so I didn't actually witness the boy saying this, but I still laugh any time a Geico commercial comes on because it makes me think of my little boy saying, "Did you see that?! That frog just stood up and talked!!" What a sweet, naive little boy he is!

I figure it's about time I write something about my baby boy. It's been awhile. I'm not sure if that's because I have a hard time coming up with something nice to say about the boy, or if there's just too much to write.

I'll assume the latter (since I don't really want to admit to the former) and try to write a few of the most current things going on with the boy.

Don't get me wrong, the boy is a very sweet, loving, emotive, and wonderful little boy. He just happens to be 3. And naps are always hit-or-miss these days, so when I get home from work, I never know if I'm going to be met with a sweet little boy or a psychotic, over-tired little monstrosity.

But enough about how incredibly taxing it can be to deal with him when he's tired. What I really wanted to write here is about the funny things he's doing these days.

He has discovered the phrase, "I love you." He uses it continuously - which kind of makes you question his sincerity after the 10th time he's told you, his baby sister, the cat, and his baby doll that he loves them! It can be especially exasperating to respond to him with the standard, "Aw, I love you, too." Only to have him tell you, "Uh, I was talking to baby!" *Dissed!!*

Over the past month or two, he has also taken to verbally expressing all of his baby doll's moods. These days when he's "crying" I always have to check to see if he's cradling his baby doll and comforting her because she's the one who is supposedly crying, or if he's actually upset about something.

I've also begun to wonder if this is some kind of a coping mechanism - like that he feels bad, but instead, he pretends that his baby is feeling bad and he has to comfort her. Who knows?! I do know it's very cute to see him taking such good care of his baby, though.

He generally tries to take good care of his baby sister, too. Although, maybe 50% of the time, he's also trying to kick her and keep her from getting any of the attention he thinks he deserves! You have to take the good with the bad, I guess.

However, I think the cutest thing he has begun to do is his use of larger and more complex words. Some of his favorite things to say these days are:
"In a moment"
"Absolutely" (usually in conjuction with "not" - I wonder where he got that?!)
"In the meantime"
Hmmm. I know there are more. I'm going to have to update this later, I guess...
