Wow. Did I totally abandon my blog or what?
Oh well.

The chickens didn't work out so great.  So my mom took them off my hands.  I kept the ducks, but the raccoons ate them.  I had one remaining duck that went to live with the chickens at my mom and dad's.  Supposedly the chickens are producing eggs now....Hmmm...wonder if I could take them back now...

My Little Rhino

Rhino seems to learn something new every day.  And I am totally fascinated and in awe of him.  Today we went to a birthday party at Excalibur.  He would climb into the little cars and stick his hand out and look up at me like, come on, give me the money.  So I gave him the coin, and after a little maneuvering, he would finally drop it in the slot and the ride would start.  I love that he concentrates so hard to turn that coin the right way to put it in the slot.  He may drop it a few times, but he doesn't give up or ask for my help or just fall out crying.
Tonight during his bath, I've noticed how big he's gotten.  He would drop a toy out of the tub, and he's big enough now that he can bend over the tub and pick the toy up.  He's able to climb in and out of the tub himself.

Too bad he can't pee in a potty.  We've tried.  Numerous times.  He knows the sensation of peeing, and he knows when it's happening, but he hasn't figured out how to make pee on command.  Oh well, still have time I suppose.

I cut his hair last week.

Here he is at the park.  Doesn't he look like such a big boy now?  Only 3 more months and he will be 2! That's crazy!!!

He 'talks' up a storm now.  I can't understand most of the words he says, but that doesn't stop him from trying to jabber all day long.  He says "Juice" pretty well, and he says "where's juice?" by putting both hands palms up like "I don't know."  He says 'Momma' every time he wants something whether it is another bite, a toy, or to be held.  He takes things to the trash if I ask him, he puts his dishes in the sink, and will even put some things where they belong.  He likes helping me unload the dishwasher and he gets to put the silverware in the drawer.

Rhino still is soooo obsessed with Buzz Lightyear.  He will probably be Buzz for Halloween if he keeps it up.  It will probably be the theme to his 2nd birthday party.  Just a heads up.

Okay, so let's see how long it will be until I post next time!
Until then.....
