A List Maker's Life: That's Just The Way It Is

That's Just The Way It Is

On a typical evening between seven and eight you'll find our family hanging out together in the basement playroom.  It's usually a pretty rowdy event with balls flying, play food cooking, block building, and project making.  All the while, Kevin spins the iTunes per our requests.  Tonight, with all in attendance Gibson took a break from bouncin' his bootie to the beat of...2pac to take his first 3 steps!  Watch out world -  not only can he groove, but now he can move!

Here's a little list of some other Gibson fun facts:
~When he takes a break from his goofy grunting his favorite words are Hi, Momma, Dada, Gabby, Ope, and Bye
~His favorite activity is sitting in the dishwasher - seriously, it's the only sure fire cure for the 4 o'clock witching hour.
~His favorite food is bananas (peaches are a close second)
~His favorite toys are a plastic soup ladle and spatula
~He is sporting a new tooth, #5
~He is fascinated by the Christmas tree, but has learned to look and not touch after breaking 3 ornaments (Gavin has the record for 4 so far this year...)
~He has perfected his courtesy laugh (which is quite necessary for surviving daddy's sarcastic sense of humor).  And, his goofy courtesy laugh can inspire full on belly laughs in the rest of us!

Speaking of dancing, today we enjoyed Anne Hope's final dance class of the season where the kids performed in front of their adoring audience. It was quite hysterical to see more cameras in the room then pretty pink dancers.  You may recall Anne Hope's first dance class where she held down the floor for the entire hour.  Thankfully, she's come quite a way in her confidence and skill and was able to show off a bit today with a room full of adults watching.  Of course, Kevin and I thought she was pretty stinkin' cute!

According to Gavin, all the news of the
day has left him "feeling pretty jolly!"

So, for now that's just the way it is.

  1. Cute, I love that his first steps were to 2Pac! Glad the dance class is going better too. Was thinking yesterday, should we do a have a Merry Christmas and we'll see you in the New Year kind of post? Thanks for keeping things afloat there for the past week and a half. You're such a great blogging partner☺ Oh and I meant to tell you when you first posted, how cool about going to cupcake '10! Learns lots of great stuff so I can attend vicariously through you.

  2. better say a edited "changes" by 2pac. No swearing. But a great tune! -husband Kevin

  3. cute pictures and yeah for the first steps-watch out mom!!!

    we've got you beat on broken ornaments-I think my 1 1/2 yr old broke 3 just the first day the tree was up-with us purposely putting ornaments high-the bottom of our tree is bare! I've lost track of how many have been broken-luckily just colored balls.


Thanks for taking a moment to comment. I love to hear from you!
