They call them the terrible twos. Alexander has come into them a wee bit earlier. Just 3 months shy of his second birthday, he's bouncing off the walls and driving us crazy. The house is constantly a mess, with toys all over the place. He's getting extremely attached to me now that he sees me more than a couple times a week. This is both a blessing and a curse. I love the guy dearly, but you literally cannot get anything done when he's around. He's always running around playing with my tools and demanding to be doing EXACTLY what i'm doing. I'm sawing a board for a shelf? Oh yes, he wants that sharp 50-toothed saw in his hot little hands, and he'll whine about it for a loooooong time.
However i must give him credit. He is unbelievably helpful in pretty much everything he does. He helps me build/fix things around the house, load & un-load the dishwasher, and even picks up his bath toys when he's done! Good good.
Now lets get down to the real meat of the matter. Likes and dislikes.
stomping on the hardwood floors
playing with pots & pans
putting his feet on the kitchen table
milk & cheese
playing screwdrivers & hammers (plastic and real)
brushing his teeth (like 5 times a day)
diaper changes first thing in the morning
being told what not to do
not getting his way
being fed (he wants to do it himself)
not being the center of attention
Once again, not too bad of a list. As a matter of fact, i'm happy to say, i think i'm gonna keep him.
After all, he is my little nosororzec....
