Lately Tucker starts many of his sentences with "Remember" or "Guess what". Everytime we drive by the movie theatre he says, "Remember Dad took me on a date, remember we ate sour worms." Notice he said dad, not daddy. This is a new development. Just last week I noticed he wasn't referrring to Trent as Daddy, but simply as Dad. It seems so much more grown up. I suppose turning 3 may have brought this on. After all what 3 year old would be caught dead saying "daddy" like a lame 2 year old? And now he has a new date with Dad to remember. While Charlotte and I were occupied at Abbie's baby shower, Daddy took Tucker to Ant Bully. I have to admit that I am a bit jealous. Trent and I have not been to a movie theatre together since. . hmm, I honestly don't remember the last movie we saw together in a theatre with or without kids. I think it was Elf. We took a 6 month old Tucker with us to that one. No, we actually saw Hitch in the theatre. Anyway, it is not a regular occurance, and I love going to the movies. Now Trent has gone with our 3 year old twice in 2 months. What's up with that? I gotta get Charlotte to take a bottle! I mean this month is our 5 year anniversary and we can't leave overnight cause I still nurse Charlotte twice a night! Oh I would that my babies would take binkis or bottles!

I LOVE when little kids start saying "big kid" things. Taj sas stuff like, "I love you so much Mom." or "Where's Dad?" He's been doing that forever, but I think it's because he has older siblings. Can I just tell ya that I am so impressed with Tucker's ability to draw? Taj is almost 3 and still scribbles. Tucker is very talented- like his mom!

Yes, Tucker is very talented... I could tell from the beginning... such a smarty!

That is funny that he calls him "dad" now... so grown up! Can't wait to see you all!

I'm still trying to get my 10 month old to say anything remotely close to Mom. I'd be happy if she said "ma". Nope, so far it's just da-da, pa-pa, a-ba, dog (or maybe doc, can't tell, and bob. Who the heck is Bob!

can't wait til we can all start watching movies together. Maybe DH should nurse, and you can go watch a movie with Tucker? hehehe. Don't we wish.

How fun is that... Dad instead of Daddy. Funny how we're so quick to pick up on little things like that.

I absolutely adore the name Charlotte. LOVE IT!

Hope you and hubby get a chance to go to the movies again, soon! Thanks for the visit today! :)
