Lately... as told by Ryan at 27 months.

Oh heyyyyy....

It's been awhile since I have poked in on here.

I'm 27 months now and kind of a big deal around here.
But I guess, I have always been a big deal around my house.

Mommy says I'm pretty smart now.
I know my ABC's and I can count to 20 ALL by myself!

Life has been pretty sweet lately.
Did my mommy tell you we are building a new house?
I call it "Yayan's new house".

I'm pretty "happpyyyy" about it.
Mommy says once we finally get into my new room I can have a big boy bed.
They still keep me in that dang crib.
Mommy's convinced I'm going to be her baby forever.

I decided to keep my cool in Nursery at church the last couple weeks 
and not completely freak out when mommy left me there.
I finally figured out that she's always going to come back and get me.

Come on mom. I got this.

Mommy and Daddy took me to pick out my very own tree for my room.
It was a hard choice.

They even let me choose my first ornament.
There was so many to choose from.
I licked an "ice cream cone" ornament because it looked so good, and mommy got mad at me.
"aht the heck!" I said. = "What the heck" ( My new favorite phrase )
How was I supposed to know it was fake!???

I chose Thomas the Train for my ornament. What else is new?!?

Check these dudes out.
What a bore! 
I had to sit through this Law thing for my daddy.
Good thing I had snacks.

Saturday night is the coolest.
Mommy and Daddy let me stay up an hour past my bedtime and we have movie night.
All I ever ask to watch is "Cars" or "Mater's Tall Tales".
This is me eating my popcorn.

I decided to start calling mommy "honey" because that's what my daddy calls her.
And I think everything daddy does is cool.
Every morning she comes in to get me from my crib and I say "hi Honey!"

She likes it but, let's be honest, she likes everything I say.

Mom and I like to chill on the driveway and play cars.
We have races down the hill to see which of my hot wheels are the fastest.
Lightening Mcqueen wins every time.
He's the coolest.

Speaking of Lightening Mcqueen, all I want for Christmas is Mater.
Mom says I have to be a really good boy.

What else....hmmmm 
Oh ya! 
The other day I made quite the scene when I threw a chunk of dog poop.
I thought it was a rock and mommy saw me chucking it across the road.
It was sticky and pretty dirty and mommy told me "it aint no rock!"
Mommy made me wash my hands 5 times and put on clean clothes.

She says the dog poop episode wasn't as bad as me soaking my toothbrush in the toilet and then sucking off the water episode.
That may go down in history as my biggest dirty trick yet.

P.S. I really like this whole Christmas thing.
Santa is one cool dude and mommy says we are going to sit on his lap soon.
I don't know if I want to touch him but maybe I will give in if he has a treat.
Either way I pray at night in my prayers that he can bring me Mater for Christmas.

Well, that's all for now! BYYYYYEE!!
