Two Year Old Boys Are Actually a Lot Like Twelve Year Old Girls.

Yesterday morning Casey ate his first whole apple. Not like he ate it all, but like, I didn't have to cut it up. He actually only ate about a third. And then another third with lunch. And then Wes found it on the floor this morning and it was just a brown soggy core. I think Izzie at the rest.


Erin had a late meeting, so I picked up Merrick from daycare after Casey's two year well visit (which was awesome. really.). Casey was very hesitant when we walked into daycare and I had to drag him (literally) to Merrick's classroom. As soon as Casey saw Merrick through the glass doors, though, he started jumping up and down with excitement. Then Merrick saw Casey and... simultaneously...
"SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!"

Seriously. And they ran into each others arms and hugged. It was ridiculous. And it made me cry.

After pick-up, we headed to the zoo. Casey and Merrick ran the entire zoo. Well, except occasionally they would stop to jump up and down for several seconds. I was worried when we arrived that there wouldn't be enough time to see everything (we got there about an hour before closing), but the little Speed Racers got us to the petting zoo with thirty minutes to spare! The petting zoo chick saw us coming and LOCKED THE FEED SHOP AS WE WERE WALKING UP. So I did what any normal, sane (and slightly irritated) Mommy would do. I knocked on the door until she opened it. And then I made her get us some cow chow. And then I paid her in nickels and pennies.



Ok, he's not really afraid of stuffed animals. But he is a little uptight.




After the zoo we met up with Erin and Nick at my house where we dined heartily on fresh bread and pulled pork. Mmmmm. In the evening when everyone left I made Really Colorful Cookies. And then I got a piece of ass.

Oh yeh. JJ's big boy car seat came too.

Sorry kiddo, it was on sale.

I love the captions on the photos, I should start doing that!

"Afraid of stuffed animals but not of cows" is my fav one.

Haha! Like 12-year-old girls... My 14-year-old son and I say 12-year-old girls are like dolphins when they greet each other. So I totally got you on this- Excellent.

Too funny! I`m a little sad my boys have no friends except their cousin Zanelle. Oh, but the girly car seat? We had a seat donated to us by a woman who had adopted a baby girl here and it`s, ahem, pink with flowers, even more girly than that one. And Dante STILL uses it, has since he was a month old!

my son would have loved that car seat. He constantly tells me that his favorite color it pink.
It sounds like an awesome day!

My son likes to try to accomplish everything at a sprint too. I guess it keeps us in shape.

I hope that seat doesn't give JJ a complex.
