HELLLLLLLLO Everybody! I'm not doing so great at keeping this updated so I think I'm going to focus on once a month. We'll see how that works!
Things are moving along nicely, Kyes growing just as he should physically and he's doing exceptionally well with his words and his understanding of them. He can say the entire abc's, we have to say it first and he'll follow...he'll usually say the next letter without a hint though. He can count to 5 without any help! My smarty pants! I've been complimented quite a bit about how well he behaves and listens. His doctor was one who was impressed! BUT he IS a two year old. He's discovered the word 'No'. I'm not a fan. He uses it even when he means yes. Weirdo child! Anyway, I hope we make it through this two year old syndrome. He's been sick, which I think has allot to do with his attitude. He's been doing great with potty training too! I'm pretty excited! He only falls behind when he gets sick. MiMi (What he's reduced Grammy too ;-)) has had him in a clean dry diaper all day a few times! He even pooped on the potty! I KNOW, AWESOME HUH? Once he woke me up at night to use the potty, I hear thats a good sign. MiMi's pretty good at this whole thing so we're just following her lead.  
He's growing up so fast I can't stand it! Today we had to put up his 'big boy bed'. Daddy and I are not super stoked about this new development but, we don't have a choice as you'll see in the videos below...

Yes sir the Boy has mastered his escaped. 
Here's the scoop...
He was down for a nap (aka play time in bed with Grover and Elmo cause he slept in the car for 20 minutes with daddy) when we heard the door to his room close softly. We looked at each other, lifted our eyebrows and squinted a little as if  to say, "You think...NOooo couldn't be, then dismissed the thought. A few minutes later we heart the door knob giggle.. Confused and not really believing it was possible, I got up to invistagate. I opened the door and there he stood, Butt naked, Grover in hand and the biggest smile plastered on his cute little mug. Funny? Yes. Untill the magnitude of the situation hit us...we have to put up his big boy bed. This means he'll ultimately be free...Sad on so many levels. First and most importantly, he's growing up. I want to put on the brakes, just for a little while. I'm not ready for him to drive!! Oh, I know I'm jumping the gun but, if time flies now thats just around the corner so I'm not really exaggerating that much. Secondly, he'll be FREE. This could go horribly wrong!! Sigh. On the other hand, I can see a small glimmer of light, is it possible that this may free US up to sleep longer while he plays safely in his room? Is that bad of us? I don't think so. Alone time is quite valuble...for him too;-)
