My Big Boy

My Cole is such a funny little man these days!  He is into pirates, robots, dinosaurs, race cars and many other boy things.  We recently started creating stories by each adding a few sentences and every time cole adds a line it involves some kind of dinosaur eating someone or vehicle speeding away.  He often asks to listen to songs about pirates and race cars and then dances around exclaiming"Yo ho let's go" and "Green race car is the winner".  He loves putting together puzzles, reading and playing with his trains by himself but also is interested in "having a friend to play with".  He is a good helper when it comes to unloading the dishwasher and he tries his best to be the professional underwear and washcloth folder (see below).  He gets into giddy moods several times a week and laughs uncontrollably.  He also likes to pick a random word or phrase out of a conversation and repeat it always ending his statement with "who said ____".  For example, he'll say things like:  "Chickpeas, who said chickpeas?".  He is not a fan of dirt or feeling dirty at all.  In fact, at camp he refused to participate in making birdfeeders because he didn't want to get his hands dirty.  Sometimes he get involved in an activity and seems to be having fun until he realizes that he is getting dirty and then freaks out.  For example, he loves putting on his rainboots and jumping in puddles until he gets water in his boots and his feet get wet.  Cole recently declared Thursday, Friday and Saturday to be the only kissing days at our house.  Every day he reminds us what day it is and whether kisses are allowed or not.  He gets a big kick out of it when i sneak kisses on non-kissing days.  He still loves to recite "I love you a bushel and a peck" before bed to me.  We go back and forth with the verses.  Cole gets VERY excited about the small things in life.  The other day he was jumping up and down and put his hands up to his mouth with excitement when he came back from a walk with Daddy and they saw a bunny :)
