Catchin' Up With the Little Man

Days are never boring with our little man. He just makes life so wonderful!
This first picture is Steven as a burrito. He woke up one morning, and was shivering, so I said, "are you brrrr cold?" and he of course said, "Brrrrr cold!" So, I told him we could wrap him up like a burrito. He thought it was the best thing ever, and he stayed in there for about 10 minutes warming up. He just keeps getting smarter and smarter, and I LOVE how he is starting to put words together into bigger phrases.
-The other night when Darrell and I were racing on the wii, Steven was coloring pictures...or so we thought. I looked over to see him drawing fantastic blue circles all over the wall. I went on to tell him the wall is not for coloring on, and got out the lysol wipes to clean it up. He helped me to wipe it up, and the next morning, when he saw the wipes, he said, "Washie blue crayon!!" And he wanted to do it again.
-He now has started counting, and really does a great job. He will start by going 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. once he gets to 8, he goes, 8, 8, 8, 8, until someone prompts him with 9. He then proceeds from 10, 11, 12, 13, 13, 13, until you say 14, then he'll go 15, 16, 17, 18!
-He knows all of his letters, but is still working on saying his ABC's all in a row. They go something like: a, b, c, d, f, g, h, j, k, o, p, r, s, u, x, y, z!
Last week, we drove up the mountain to see the leaves. Steven kept telling us they were purple and pink, when clearly they were orange, yellow, green, and red :) He had fun getting some pictures nonetheless...
Happy Fall Everyone!!!

Of COURSE he's adorable, and I love the fall leaves, so perfect.

So, what is your due date again? Are we due at the same time? I'm January 8th. And, I love your ticker, because I like Lilypie. It was about the only place I liked for a really cute "baby" ticker.

I have loved watching Teddy grow these past few weeks. It's so watching them learn. The leaves are breathtaking.
