I can't believe it's December already! It feels like just yesterday we were going Trick-or-Treating! It has snowed again here in Utah which is not a surprise at all, but I still hate it. It's cold and cold and mostly it's COLD! Driving in it sucks, but playing in it is fun.. Taiden hasn't really gotten to explore the snow much yet as I still haven't gotten him any snow boots! I haven't been able to find any I like because they forget about the boys and make all the cute stuff for girls! BOO. We put our tree up Thanksgiving day and although it's been fine the past THREE years.. This year it was too bare for Devan (only cause my mom said so first!), so we threw some ribbon on it haha. Chip made me a ribbon for a wreath I'm making, but in the end I just threw that on the tree too.. Looks kinda weird, but oh well!
Devan got a little clicker that we can turn on the tree, nativity scene and Santa Clause thing with and I really think it's the highlight of Taiden's day to turn them on at night! He makes sure they are all on and points at them and yells Yay!!!
Taiden has somehow learned to count to 10... We weren't trying to teach him at all.... One day I woke up to him going eight... nine.. ten.. yay! We do have a book that we read that counts to ten so I'm assuming that's where he picked it up. He can count all the way to ten all by himself.. YAY TAIDEN! (what he says when he's done) He can also say his alphabet up to I then if you say J he'll continue to M... This kid picks up EVERYTHING... Including the word shut up... I guess we weren't watching what we say as well as we thought because yesterday at church he told my brother and sister SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP! We couldn't help but to laugh, but I have warned them they need to watch it! (And myself of course I can't place all the blame on them!)
Another thing Taiden has picked up is WHY. Taiden let's go to bed... WHY?!? Because it's night night time.. WHY?!? Because you need to sleep... WHY?!? Because I said... OKAY!!! So now I just say because I said for almost everything.. It's the quickest way to get him to stop asking WHY?!? The down side is that if I ask him why he did something he now says... you guessed it... CAUSE!!! Oh boy... He's not even two yet... We are in for it this next year that is for sure!
