Bei Off to Work

My handsome little man!
Hey Mister, I'm thumbing it here, can you give a little kid a ride?

With gas prices so high, I think I'll just walk.

Off to work I go!
Dan came home and left his computer case out in the living room and like all two year olds, Bei was delighted to find a "new toy"!
I knew Bei would be a different kid within six months of coming home, but I am amazed at how much he is changing and growing. He has already gone through phases and is onto the next ones. Here are some of the phases and changes that he went through;
His favorite toy use to be daddy's big Hemi pick up truck, now he prefers mom's green boxy jeep.
He gave unsolicited kisses multiple times a day, now I feel like I'm on a deserted island just hoping and praying for one little crumb. (My mom told me that once he gets more secure with us, the kisses will slow down...smart mom!). I never wanted to be one of those mom's chasing after a kid in desperation saying "Kiss me" Kiss me"...and now some days I'm exactly THAT mom.
Previously, Bei would not watch any video's, well tomorrow I'm signing him up for Veggie Tales Anonymous.
The word "again" was one of his first words, but now he won't say it and will only say more.
He use to say "No" really cute, he would hold up his hand like a stop sign and softly say No. It made you think he had considered every option and the answer is an affirmed, but kind "no". Now, he says it more like a typical two year old.
Here are some things that he is currently doing.
He still loves bacon, I put it in a sandwich bag and he carries it around all day and eats it like they are cookies.
He still has a great sense of humor and loves slapstick comedy, which is right up my alley. Mama tripping and falling is really funny to him.
He loves to be frightened, if he is coming down the hallway and I jump out at him unexpectedly he loves it and says "more". He wants to me hide in the same place again and scare him, but I don't...I move around to keep him on his toes.
Calling me mom rather than maMa (I miss the british accent). Usually he says it three times really fast, mom, mom, mom. It might be because I forget I'm the mom...oh...you're talking to me??? Oh ya, that's right I'm the mom.
The strides that he is making on the playground are incredible. He is climbing the rock wall with my help, climbed the ladder by himself with me spotting him and then climbs the stairs steadily.
He still loves Choo Choo trains the best, but he also loves boats, airplanes, cars and trucks.
When we ask him if he wants to take a bath he usually goes running to the tub and says over and over "take a bath!" "take a bath!"
He now calls the telephone "Doe Doe". Last week, I showed him pictures on the computer of him and Doe Doe (Sarah) in China, and he tried to feed her a cookie through the screen. What type of mad spell did that girl put on him?? She is like the Queen of Sheba, getting fed grapes by her minion Bei. I would love to know their history.
Multiple syllable words are seem to be easier to say than single syllable words. He said elbow before knee and Jeannine's before Bob. Go figure???
Still a great eater! He would of de-throned Randy of the best eater category if Grandma Phyllis was still alive...sorry Randy...but you have lost your eating status!
I'll forget to say dinner prayers and I'll be waiting for Bei to eat and he will have his hand on his forehead and will be looking at me. I'll say, "Honey, go ahead and eat..." He just waits for me...oh yeah, thanks son for being the spiritual leader in the household...In the name of the Father, Son...when we get to the Holy Spirit, he doesn't have the crossing of the breast quite right...he reaches behind him and touches his butt...don't ask me why, it seems to me it would be easier to touch your chest, but his spatial concepts are not quite there...
Still the best kid for Dan and I, hands down, bar none!!! We are crazy crazy about him!!!!
