tysen is talking sooooo much now! he's really a delightful kid [until he screams...his vocal cords can literally pierce your ears all the way to your brain].....well, he's become quite attached to his blankie. i'm glad because i know that sometime in the near future, when i muster up the courage, we will be taking his bedtime passy away. i actually tried to on a whim once, and was not mentally prepared for the raging fit he threw...so he won that little battle. [don't judge me, i know its pathetic, but i'm not kidding when i say that "i" was NOT ready]. i will have to really prepare for that. when that day comes, i want him to have something that he's attached to...to help with that transition. anyway....he's attached to this blankie. but he's sooo funny about it. 90% of the time, he wants his shirt off. he'll come up to me, pulling at the bottom of his shirt, and say, "i take a shirt off mommy? can i, mommy? can i, mommy?" [its really quite sweet] ....but then he will walk back out, with this blanket wrapped around his shoulders. and that's where it stays!! he will color, and play with his toys, and eat...everything is totally normal, but that blanket must be around his shoulders. i don't really know why he started that, but its one of his funny little quirks.
