Here are some examples:
Colt can't say "you," he always says "lou" instead. He has said "lou" for a while, so I decided to play around with him and say "who is Lou?" When I first asked him, he didn't really respond, but as I continued to ask him, he finally said "he's over there," while he pointed toward the door. That day he was pretending I was a pig and he was riding me (usually it's a horse, so I'm not sure why I was a pig), he was about to get on my back and he held out his hands and said "I have two Lou's" apparently Lou is pretty small. SO, now he has a "friend" called Lou and Lou plays piggy (or horsey) :)
To be such a picky and light eater, a lot of his pretending deals with food. He's always giving me "food" to eat and "drinks" to drink. Interesting.
The other day when Colt, Addie and I went to the little playground in our neighborhood, Colt was playing on the slide. I was standing on the ground in front of him (he was taller than me). He said "lou want a hamburger?" I said "ummm, yes." Then he crawled through the tunnel on the slide set came back and "gave" me a hamburger. I ate it of course and said "yum." Then he said "lou want fries?" I said "no, I want apples." He said "ok" and came back with some apples. Yummy! Then he said "lou want diet coke?" This is sad, but he doesn't even know there is such a thing and regular coke:) I had a nice little "meal" that day.
At the Miracle playground in Dothan there is a toddler table and chairs and Colt usually makes me sit with him as we "eat."
Colt's first Christmas KK gave him one of those Pottery Barn soft chairs, but what we didn't realize is that it could serve several different purposes besides being just a chair. This may be hard to imagine, but one of Colt's favorite things to do is to scoot the chair from the wall and get between the wall and the chair. Then he will take his pillows and make a wall, or in this case a door to enclose the space. Then all of a sudden he has a makeshift car! He also has toy keys (from when he was a baby) to start the car. He usually wants a passenger or three (me, Daddy and Addie or whoever is around KK, Nana)...it's quite difficult fitting in that little space. Me and Addie usually get to ride in the front...which means sitting in the chair. We usually go to the store, sometimes the beach and we have to fill up with "grass" (gas) ALL THE TIME! Colt will let you know if you are in the way, he yells "better watch out, we gonna run ober lou." Speaking of the beach, if we ever go to the "beach" we "dig" in the sand and put it in the bucket...lots of fun:)
The chair can also be a boat or a train. If you turn it over and get on top, the possibilities are endless!
He is definitely into "daddy, mommy, baby and baby sister" these days. For instance, if he has two big cars and other cars that are smaller, the biggest car is the daddy, next size is the mama and the small ones are the babies. This can go for anything...such as our feet compared to his, blocks, forks, food, straws, cups...it doesn't matter...there is ALWAYS a daddy, mama and children.
Here the tall round blocks are the Daddy and Mommy and the little ones are the baby brother and baby sister. Sometimes he will throw Daisy (our dog) in there.
Speaking of blocks, he loves playing with blocks and legos. Here he is standing tall with one of his masterpieces...with the help from Daddy, but he is very good at building.
He will come up with the craziest stuff. Here's a picture of him with Addie's sunglasses on, her baby, and diaper packages tied to his feet. He was swishing around the house with these packages on his feet saying he was going skiing. We had a time getting them off him when we had to go somewhere. People would have thought we were so strange.
Here's Colt "working" in my office. So cute:) Looks like he's counting a lot of money!
