I hope you all had a pleasant holiday season.
We've been doing a lot of learning around the House of Adventure. We learned that the Little Miss is more into building blocks than she is Barbie, so I'm returning her birthday presents and getting some blocks.
And Hamburglar is learning and repeating everything. He said fuck for the the first time last week. That was nice. He also says shoes, socks, hat (of course). And he learned "turkey" back in November and he recently started saying "turtle," which he enunciates very clearly. He likes to point out that he is a baby, he calls water "wa" and, most importantly, he has learned to say "Hodor." Which has provided a lot of entertainment for the Mister and I. And I'm sure that any Game of Thrones fans out there also appreciate it.
Mr. Adventure also taught Chumbercules to kick a ball! I picked up a mini soccer ball at Old Navy several months ago for $3, and it's the perfect size for little toddler feet to kick.
He really likes his rocking horse and his fire engine play set, and a friend gave him some Mega Blocks as a Christmas gift, and we all have fun playing with those.
We had grilled cheese and tomato soup for dinner last week and Chumby was using a spoon on his own and most of the soup made it into his mouth! It was all very exciting.
I think the most exciting thing that has happened lately, though, is this. Jaws-themed baby crib! They're going to need a bigger boat.
Also, for any pregnant ladies out there, the Pregnant Chicken has this super killer giveaway happening right now.
And, this is a little late (though still hilarious): The Ugly Volvo put up a new post a couple weeks ago. And now I kind of want to sit on Willie Nelson's lap.
