Best Nap-time Ever

Today Cormac and I came home right before his nap and I could tell he was ready to go down.  I changed him and just as I was getting him his binkie (reserved only for nap time), my phone rang.  I went into the kitchen to write something down, and heard Cormac heading for the stairs.  I got off the call and he was already at the top of the staircase.  I followed him up and he was laying down in the hall, wiggling and smiling behind his binkie.  I picked him up and started to go back downstairs and he protested, whining and kicking.  I was surprised, so I tried going into his bedroom and asked him, "Do you want to go to bed?"  He grinned at that, so I set him in his crib and he smiled and crawled away from me and put his head down.   He talked to himself for a couple of minutes and drifted off!  Very often, that little boy fights me insistently when I try to put him down for a nap!  What a nice surprise.  I just finished my latest book and since my chores/cleaning are all done, I'm going to relax and enjoy whatever quiet time I have left before that crazy boy wakes up.  Happy Friday to me!

Autumn in Provo Canyon

We took Cormac for a stroll in Provo Canyon.  He loved all the bikers and dogs going by!  (He really loves dogs -he goes crazy when he sees them, and always runs after them and tries to touch them!)  He loves to get down and walk all on his own now, but he also gets tired easily and wants to be carried.  He especially loves to be carried by his dad  :)  He is a Daddy's boy on the weekends, for sure.  He hardly lets me pick him up!

Cormac just takes off and runs away from us, often.  He doesn't even look back!  He is getting pretty fast, too, so we're getting more exercise  :)  Good thing he's wicked cute!

Dr. Dolittle He Is Not

We took Cormac to the petting zoo at Thanksgiving Point.  He was a little nervous, but excited to see all the animals.  He especially loves cows, so he kept "moo-ing" when he saw them. (It sounds more like "meh" but I think that makes it even cuter.)

I got stung by a bee or wasp or something right when we got there, so kudos to Scott for putting up with my complaining and whining  :)  Other than that, we had a lot of fun.  Cormac is getting pretty good about walking in shoes now, so we were able to let him wander a bit -but not too far, because tripping and falling at a petting zoo just seems extra gross.

Anyway, Cormac can also "caw" like a bird now.  He still hasn't figured out "mom" or "dad," but we're working on it.  He is such a happy boy, and it's a lot of fun seeing him so excited about everything in the world!
