catch up day 6: growing up so fast

Every parent says it so it seems cliche to say it as well but it's true, Cason is growing up so fast! The past couple of weeks have been quite the eye opener for me. I decided to try to give him cereal a couple weeks ago. He loved it!! Which for those of you that know me know my obsession with cereal. Night, day, dry, with milk-I love cereal! So to have Cason eat it with me was so cool. Thanks to my mom and her not wanting to waste anything we were required to drink our milk. Today, I still drink it. And when Cason saw me do it, he of course had to join me-Even though his bowl still had cereal in it, he still drank all the milk and then asked for more milk. So adorable. He is also now drinking from a cup full time when at the table. He turned his nose up to sippy cups but is still willing to use them when he's in the car, etc. I love that he's drinking from a cup! Some times it's a mess but I love that he's at this milestone. So big.Thanks to having a home and a sandbox Cason can now play while I cook dinner. I didn't think he would be okay with this considering he likes to see me and not be by himself for the most part but he's been doing so much better. I constantly peeked at him through the window every 10 seconds but he had so much fun!
Can. Not. Believe how big he is getting! Two is just around the corner. So crazy!

50+ words

I wish I could spell out exactly how Cason says things but I just don't think I can do it. The way he says basketball and lawnmower melt my heart every time. His vocabulary seems to be getting larger and larger. I think he is well over know 50 words by the time you're 2. I don't think I could count how many words he can say but my most recent and favorite one is motorcycle. He has a puzzle that's all trucks and cars and also one motorcycle. He always picks this one up first and plays with it for a good five minutes before all the rest. I was quick to act when he was saying it 100 times over and over again. I grabbed the camera and this is the video I totally scored on. Enjoy!

Catching up Day 5: Who needs a petting zoo??

On our way home from a friends house Cason saw some cows and ran straight up to the fence. Travis and I let him go but didn't follow right away until we saw the cow running up to the fence to meet Cason. Travis booked it over to him to play safety inspector and I pulled out the camera (funny how we both have our roles). This cow sniffed, licked, and stared at Cason. I think the cow liked Cason just as much as Cason liked the cow.After the cow was aquainted with Cason he took a couple steps back as if to say, 'that's enough kid'. Cason put his arms in the fence as far as he could to reach out to the cow. He even wiggled his hands and babbled to him. But the cow was done and over it. He did humor Cason and let him touch his nose one more time but that was it. Cason loved every minute of it and had a hard time saying goodbye.
So funny!
