Just last night Brandt and I were talking about how Boston is doing such funny/cute things ALL THE TIME. It's seriously one thing after another and we can't believe such a little kid can make us smile so much. Like today as we were leaving his school he started singing at the top of his lungs in a country boy voice, "I've got my tight pants, I've got my tight pants on." Brandt has been singing it lately and I guess Boston picked it up, ha! Here's a sample:
Or like how he says, "Hey babe!" to every girl he sees. I didn't realize how much I say that to Brandt and the girls (I say "hey bud" to the boys) until he started saying it non-stop to every girl we pass. The funniest two were when we walked into Target and it was dead silent and he said "Hey Babe!" to a cashier. Everyone heard and started laughing (I was turning red) and they were instantly in love with him. The other time was when we were leaving Costco and he saw a little girl his age in a cart and said, "Hey babe" to her like he was a smooth guy hitting on her. I laughed so hard.
I am also loving his thumbs up. Anytime he likes what we say or will do what we ask he give a super fast thumbs up out of no where without saying anything. Finally caught one on camera:
His new phrase he says all the time is, "That's awkward." He says it when things aren't and are awkward so it cracks us up all the time. For example, I say, "No it's not broken, I'm just trying to close it." He replies with, "That's awkward." Or at the store he was adjusting the front of his pants and I asked him if he needed to go potty. He replied with, "No I just fix'n somefing. Dat's awkward." Totally made me laugh out loud.
He is such a sweetie. He doesn't let social boundaries stop him for telling people how he feels. Just yesterday he told the really old sample guy at Costco who gave him a sample of buttered toast, "I love you." Everyone laughed and then the sample guy said, "I love you too." So sweet!!
He is obsessed with Brandt's tool bag, plugging things into every outlet (like taking an alarm clock around the house and not stopping until he has plugged it into every outlet), having Alexa play the fire truck song and running around the kitchen with Logan for the entirety of the song played 10 times and even telling Logan to hold hands with him, and he's always asking for pizza sandwiches (grilled cheese with pepperoni).
I don't think I could love this little turkey any more than I do.
Here he is dipping mini tacos in jam today at lunch. Strange kid.
We stopped letting him nap (he LOVES naps and always asks for them) because he is starting to take too long to fall asleep at night but sometimes I let him have a short one.
On this day he was driving me crazy. He sometimes gets too hyper because he's tired so I said, "Just go lay down in my bed." Sure enough after a while of hearing nothing I checked on him and he was sound asleep in my bed with his favorite blanket.
Another day, he put himself to sleep for a nap and after a while he walked into the hallway whining and fell right back to sleep in the hallway like this. It took me forever to wake him. I think he was sleepwalking, ha!
I love awake Boston but I can't get enough of adorable sleeping Boston either.
From the moment I found out he was a boy I knew he was the boy I always knew I'd have and I'm thankful every single day I get to be his mommy.
