"Doing, Mama?"

That's what my eighteen-month-old would probably ask if he were here now. He is so inquisitive lately. If my husband is about to walk out the door, he asks him, "Going, Daddy?" Then once he's gone, he'll turn to me and ask, "Daddy going?" If we're watching a movie, he asks, "Watching, Mama?" Whenever we are driving somewhere in the car, he asks, "Going, Mama?", about every two minutes.
But his most common question is "Doing, Mama?" He asks me what I'm doing when I'm taking a shower, doing the dishes, folding the laundry, or fixing his lunch. It cracks me up. Surprisingly, I never tire of this questioning. He is just so cute! He has such a cute little voice and an innocent face; I can tell he's genuinely interested in my actions, and I love it when he calls me "Mama".

How cute! It is so fun when they start talking! Kaysen is starting to copy a lot of the words we say. He looked up at me today, pointed to his bum and said, "Poop". I looked and he really had pooped! I guess it is time to start potty training!

I love that phase. It's so fun to know what your kids are thinking and to talk with them. What fun!

Yea!! When are you moving back?? I can't wait! We should go do stuff more often this time--sorry I was such a lousy friend before- I'll make it up to you:) Oh, and if you would like, when you move back, I would love to take some family pictures of you guys. I am kind of getting into photography, and could use some practice!
