I haven't captured the kids in a few months, so here goes!
A friend set up a little Valentines backdrop a few weeks ago to take festive photos for Grandparents, and invited anyone to come and bring their littles, so we gave it a whirl. I wish I were better at photography, but I like how they came out, because I love that little face.
Name: "Marcos OOOOOwion!"
Current Age: 2 and a few months
Current Strong Interests: the sock fuzz between his toes, friends and new toys, being defiant and ornery, balls, vehicles, puzzles, desserts, saying "I'm tired" and "I'm frustrated", building with legos/magnatiles/blocks, "tough time" with Papai, apologizing, helping out in the kitchen, potty talk with Gigi, talking all the time, the Temple Song, "Brazil songs", and being a big boy.
Things he says:
Gigi, parenting Orion in the next room.
Gigi: Orion, go to timeout! One... Two... -
Orion: No! You're not the office!
Pretty much every time he is busted and has to apologize.
Orion: I'm sorry for hitting you, Gigi. Thank you for apologizing, I forgive you.
Gigi: No, I'm supposed to say that!
Asking to go outside last week.
Orion: Can I go outside and play with bubbles? On the duck? On the dick? Out there?
Metta: Oh! On the DECK.
Orion: Yeah, on the deck.
Orion washing his hands, to Gigi who was crowding him at the sink.
Orion: Give me space. I'm washing my hands!
Orion, when some friends were over and their baby son was put to bed in Orion's crib.
Orion: I don't want baby Sam in my bed. It make me upset!
Marcos: Orion, I just gave a talk at the Priesthood Meeting.
Orion: Wow! That's awesome!
Metta: Orion, you did it! You are becoming so independent! Can you say "independent"?
Orion: No! I don't want to! I don't want to say independent!
Orion, asking me to put the Pentatonix Little Drummer Boy video on the computer.
Orion: I do the computer?
Orion: My job is to sit on the sofa!
Orion: There's boogies in there! I can't breathe very well!
Trying to teach Orion Portuguese.
Orion: I can't say that word. It's kind of tricky for me.
