Ah well, we tried to get Wyatt to warm up to old St. Nick. I gave him a cheerio, which you can see if you look carefully, and David placed him on the red suited stranger's lap in what must have seemed like a horrible moment of betrayal. Fortunately, Cici and Grandpa Bob were there to help him promptly take his mind off his troubles.
Wyatt spent the last two nights with his Mimi, celebrating her Veteran's day off and a fun day out of daycare for him. He got new batman slippers that he actually does wear, which is remarkable to me. Seems they enjoyed a really nice time together, as Mimi goes on and on about what a good baby he is. I heard him say "Mimi" often this evening!
He has really done well picking up words. He tells me now when he wants water or milk, and if you listen carefully you might figure out that he wants Cheerios. He can say "home" and "daddy" and "mama", though lately he has been taunting David by only saying "MAMA" and pointing to me. He is good with bye-bye and hi, makes real good pig and horse noises, and keeps a pretty good tune to the ABC song. The boy loves books and music. Tonight I saw him get off a tricycle to grab a favorite book. He knows where the button is to the cd player in his room that plays his music...so inevitably if left alone for a moment we will soon hear his songs playing. If you peek in to see, you'll find him bouncing up and down and smiling like he just figured out the world's biggest mystery. I'm working behind the scenes to influence his music, and you know what else? My fella LOVES broccoli. Warms my heart.

Recently determined Wyatt was not the only tyke in the house. We've seen a raccoon scaling down the house, but never with two other bandits tugging behind her. Unfortunately for all of us, I was up in the early morning worrying about our sick little guy when I heard her commotion outside the office window. I'd guess by the looks of it she was surprised to see me too.
Here are a couple of shots of my 2nd Mother's day ever. Wyatt is growing, walking, saying lots of "uh-ohs" and smiling most anytime he can. The past few weeks he has been a bit under the weather, but this last week has been especially hard. He feels so bad that he has given up sucking his thumb, and if we get close to 6 hours without Motrin...we all know about it. He has a virus that was initially diagnosed as mono when we took him to the ER last weekend. Hurts our heart's something fierce to see him so uncomfortable. Maybe the long weekend will give us time to recuperate. I am hoping he mends up soon so he can go meet his new 2nd cousin, Callie Marie. She came to Texas April 21st, and we are so delighted to have her here. I will post photos as soon as I can get myself reorganized. The last few months....ugh. Spring semester is always the busiest at work, and we've had more than a few concerns with great grand-mema and pops. Both have been in and out of the hospital...and finally both shaking off a tough row.
Must get some sleep! I will make a dedicated effort to catch up to my writings and photos. So many things happening so fast...can't believe it, him, anything!
Couldn't be more delighted.
