Easter egg hunt and the "Easter Duck"

Our city's Easter egg hunt was today. Here is a picture of Joey at the "starting line" ready for action:

Here he is with his stash of eggs. Each kid was supposed to stop at five eggs, but how do you tell a two year old that? We kept tossing a few out as he went along, but we still ended up with eight.

Finally, we went to see the Easter Bunny, they had three stations set up. Two were Easter Bunnies and one was the "Easter Duck". I was a little bit disappointed that we got the duck instead of the bunny, but Joey actually loved the duck. He has been talking about the duck all day.

Three Little Monkeys

This is a little movie I made from a clip I took of the boys jumping on Grandma's bed a few weeks ago.

A real guitar!!

We really are trying not to spoil Joey since he is an only child, so we don't usually just buy new toys for no reason. But, he has been walking around saying "I want a guitar" for a few weeks, so I broke down and bought a kiddie guitar on Ebay.

You can see by the smile on his face how excited he was:

And here he is jamming to a U2 song that was on TV - I think we have a future rocker on our hands:

Funny stories from our day

I took Joey to the child care center at our gym today so that I could work out. He, of course, cried pitifully when I left him. When I came back, though, they had the Wiggles playing on the big TV. He was standing up in front of all of the other kids dancing and doing all of the hand motions to the song. When he saw me, he barely acknowledged me and just kept on dancing. Finally I coaxed him out by promising that we could watch the Wiggles at home.

On the way home he started yelling, "Eat! Eat!". I was hungry too, so I decided to stop at Wendy's. He was being pretty good while I ordered because he was staring at their display case of toys. All of a sudden I heard a big commotion and turned around. He had somehow dismantled the whole toy display case and it fell down with all of the toys. Someone had to come out from behind the counter and take the broken display case away. I was so embarrassed!

More Wiggly Dancing!

Joey got a new toy in the mail today from Aunt Angie - a Wiggles keyboard! Here he is having a little jam session:

"I want cake!"

Joey usually seems to want to talk as little as he possibly can. He will use single words or even single syllables if he can get his point across. So, today out of the blue he decides to talk in full sentences! After dinner, I said to Dave "Oh I forgot we have leftover cake" and Joey said "I want cake!" clear as day. Then he repeated it "I want cake!" It was so funny. It makes me feel better because I was starting to worry a little bit that he would never talk.

Another Birthday Celebration

Today we had our family party for Joey. He had a lot of fun playing with his cousins and he loved his Wiggles cake that Mommy made. (Actually I just bought a cake from Costco and stuck a Wiggles car on top!).
