The holidays have left me scatter brained. At least I am blaming it on the holidays. Here are some little Nate tidbits:
I asked Nate yesterday what he thought Santa might bring him for Christmas. He said, "Cookies and birthday hats."
He has a bunch of cute mannerisms and speech patterns right now. One of my favorite things, which he has been doing for awhile, is to begin sentences (usually in response to a question) with "Well." He also likes to tell me, "Mommy, I have a question for you," and then he makes a statement. Recently, he's also been saying often, with an excited gleam in his eye, "I have a good idea, Mommy!" And then he'll lay out a plan for us. It usually involves visiting the inflatable Santa two doors down.
As I may have mentioned, he loves torturing me by putting things around his neck. Then running. Sometimes with food in his mouth. The newest thing he enjoys putting around his neck is his backpack. He runs the length of the house, back and forth, back and forth, yelling, "SUPERHERO TO THE RESCUE!"" At least it isn't a long balloon string.
Today he made up a story, "When I was a wittle boy I went to a farm and you weft me awone with the farm animals." No, sweetie, we've never left you alone with the farm animals...not yet anyway.
