The Many Sayings and Doings of Vance

What a riot this kid is. Sometimes I can't believe the things that he remembers and says. He has been cracking us up over the past few weeks.  Here are a few of the ones that we loved....

Mommy: Vance what do you want for a snack?
Vance: Chips and Salsa!!!

For some reason he has recently started adding a syllable to every word he can. It is like he heard someone with a really good southern drawl and started talking like them. Here are few examples:
Mommy I want Dayown (down)
Let's go in the Hayouse (house)
Look over Dayere (there)
No right Nayow (now)

Vance got stuck under the chair and I here this "Mommy little help, little help"

Every little kid that we see at the library or the store Vance will say "Hello there Little Fella!"

He randomly started saying "Not Fayer (fair)" whenever we say it is time for bed or nap time. Not only does he say that but he folds his arms and throws his head down and pouts.

He knows how to say the "K" sound but refuses to say it at the beginning of a word. For instances he will say the word Coke-Toke or Cookie-Tookie. I don't know why he won't say it at the beginning but he won't. 

Anytime he gets a carrot he will say "Like a bunny" and munch on the carrot.

He is trying to learn how to wink and what we get is this cute squinty eyed blink over and over. So funny.

He seems to always find change on the floor or somewhere and every coin is a penny no matter what we tell him it is. So stubborn!!! 

If he is taking a bath and we say it is time to get out the response we get is "One more minute!!!" 

He loves Nursery rhymes and he has recently started acting like characters from the rhymes. His favorite right now is the Big Bad Wolf and when he is pretending to be him he will come up to me and say "Mommy Big Big Wolf RRRRRRR!!" It is so funny when he says it even if it doesn't sound funny.

We love this little guy and everyday he learns something new and it keeps us laughing all the time. Here are a few pictures of him.

Vance was being awfully quiet one day and we couldn't see him so we called for him and when he popped up this is what we found. He said "Vancy color!" Oh yes he found a marker and colored all over himself. He took special care to color on each one of his toes too. What a goofy kid.

On day I walked into the kitchen and this is what I found. He had taken all his magnets and lined them up by color. By the time I got the camera to take a picture of it the red and green were pretty much gone but the yellow and blue were still lined up. He knows his colors even though when I ask him every color is Red or Pink. Why those two colors? I have no idea.
