Funny Charlie

Charlie up close

A few days ago, when Chuck got home from work, as usual he came in and embraced and kissed me hello. Charlie walked up behind him and said, "Y'all are married!" with a big grin on his face, like he just made fun of us or something. It was so cute.

Today as Charlie saw a Beauty and the Beast toy on a tv ad, he said "I want that." I told him it was for girls, so he replied, "I not want that! Mommy, you want that!"

There are so many other things he says that crack me up, I need to get better about recording them. Sometimes when I type them out, they're just not as funny... Anyways, one other thing, last week we were eating a restaurant and we all joined hands and I had said, "Let's pray, Charlie." So for the first time, of his own initiative, he led our prayer. He said "Dear God, thank for this day. Thank you for our food. Amen." I was so impressed! He's done it a few times since, although he usually forgets the food and just thanks God for Mommy and Daddy. I love it!


As far as Chance goes, no big milestones this week, except that he's starting to fight for what he wants. Until now Charlie would take away his toy and he wouldn't care. Or he'd just cry. But now, he holds on tight to the toy and screams. Or he takes it back. Which is not good since Charlie just got lots of new toys for his birthday that are his "special ones," as he likes to call it. I'm becoming more and more of a referee. Any tips on how to deal with this would be much appreciated!!

Chance has been sleeping a lot this week. Tuesday he didn't get many naps, so he slept from 6 pm - 10:30 am! He hasn't been waking up at 7 anymore (which makes Mommy very happy!). Today he woke up at 10:45 am, only because Charlie woke him. I guess he's growing again!

Also Chance has been trying out new sounds, and putting sounds together. He'll say, "Dada, (grunt)(grunt)" and then he'll laugh. You can tell sometimes that he's telling you a story. Or he'll cough, then fake it a few more times and laugh at himself. It's too cute.
