Not too much going on these days---

There is not much happening these days, just same ole same ole--work, cook, play, bathe, sleep, start all over again the next day. Colton is still his crazy little self. He is getting more of his own little personality these days.
--He wants to pick out which shoes he wears and help put them on.
--He wants to help out around the house more and more. He loves to throw trash away and totes Grammy's garbage cans to the curb.
--He is obsessed with "Brown Bear Brown What Do You See". He reads it every night before bed and takes it to bed with him as well. He knows the animals by sight and can pick which is what color.
--He loves to color right now. he wants to color every night after dinner.
--He ALWAYS wants to play "ring around the rosie" and will fall down just at the right time.
--He is becoming a little sensitive these days. If you raise your voice with him sometimes, it just breaks his little heart and he will put his bottom lip out and start bawling.
--He loves to go down the waterslide at the pool.
--He is afraid that turtles will bite his toes!! Mom's neighbor has a electronic turtle that sings and walks and he thinks it is coming to bite his toes. When he sees a turtle in his book, he will point to his toes and look very serious.
--Has finally learned how to kiss properly, no more open mouth kisses, he puckers hip lips now.
--He will tell you when he has to go potty by grabing himself and running to the bathroom door. Sometimes he doesn't make it though, but he is trying.

We are going to Orlando a week from Monday. My sister is flying down from NY for a writer's convention and bringing my neices. We are going to go to Disney (Lord help us--we are going to roast!!) and then Mom is bringing the girls back up here for 4 days before taking them back down to Orlando. Not sure how Colton will do. I think during the day he will be fine. He can nap in his stroller. The problem is going to be at night. He goes to bed between 7:30 and 8:00 and that just isn't going to work with 4 other people in the room. I bought him this--,5 and I am hoping maybe it will fit in a closet or something to give him a little quiet space. It is only for two night sand I am sure he will be alright.

  1. Have fun in Orlando. I am so jealous I love Disney. It is going to be hot though.

    I would definitely put him in the closet, if you can. We had to do this in Destin last year. If you can't try making the room quite for the time he needs to go to sleep. Kick everyone out if you have too. Once Tyler is asleep he usually doesn't wake up, unless it gets really load but he will sleep through the TV.

    Have a safe trip
