Winter Favorites

 Less than 50 days until the first day of spring but whose counting, right?!?  We have literally been "California dreamin' on a winters day" over here!

I've taken a lot of time off work this winter to hang with the dude for various reasons of being sick, the holidays, nasty weather or scheduled personal days and have really enjoyed my one on one time with him. He is both entertaining and exhausting! I have put together a list of some of Charlie's winter favorites.  Enjoy!

1. Timberland's:  Just like dad, Charlie wears his boots everywhere!

2.  Books:  He loves books and already has one memorized.  It's called "Shake a Leg".  Each page is a different command;  "Honk your nose" "Wiggle your toes" and so on.  I don't even have to read the book to him anymore, he knows all the commands and is doing the next one before I can even turn the page!  My favorite is "Make a muscle" he squeezes his fists in the air and growls. lol  Some of his other favorites are "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" "Guess How Much I Love You" and "A Little Old Man".  It's not surprising that the little reeder is a super reader indeed:) 

3.  Daddy:  He is definitely going through a daddy phase.  He is under Ben's feet 24/7.  Wants no part of Momma right now.

5.  iPad: He is obsessed with my iPad.  I came across a handy "Guided Access" feature for your iPhone/iPad that anyone with a child is sure to find helpful. Check this website out for easy instructions on how to keep your kid from roaming around on your phone and accidentally texting your boss "lufg p;/ ka yefg978*"  at 6 o'clock in the morning!

6. Playing in his room, which looks nothing like a nursery anymore :(
