Myers says and does some really funny things. I wanted to write about them, not because any of you care, but because I don't want to forget them. You may think that a bidet (pronounced ba day) is a toilet that sprays water, but in Myers language it means please. Anytime he wants something he starts saying "baday, baday" or if he wants something and we say, "say please". He says, "baday" in the cutest little voice. It's so funny.
He's obsessed with monkeys, or as he calls them "aa aa's". He wears his "aa aa" shoes around the house all day. They are monkey feet slippers that go with his, you guessed it, monkey Halloween costume.
He loves to "tee tee in the potty". He goes in the bathroom with his clothes on and sits on his potty and tee tee's.
He says hey and bye to everyone and everything. When he comes into the room he says, "hey football" or "hey pumkin" and when he leaves, he says, "bye aa aa" or "bye raddit".
He loves feeding his pumpkins. Gina gave him a huge plastic light-up pumpkin and he feeds it cheese-its and candy corn everyday. The problem is that the top doesn't come off and you can't get stuff out. This is a picture from this morning as I was saying, "Myers, you may not feed mommy's phone to your pumpkin." Notice he's hiding it behind his back.

This past Sunday we visited the pumpkin patch to pick out our pumpkins to carve. Myers absolutely loved it. You ride on a hayride out to the pumpkin patch. On the way there you stop while they feed all the animals. Some of the animals come up to the hayride, so the kids can pet them. Myers was so cute picking out his pumpkin. He tried to pick several up that were a little too heavy. We found one he could carry, and he carried it back to the hayride by himself.
Thanks Mari for coming along as our personal photographer!
I always feel like it's officially fall when the fair comes to town. We've gone to the fair for as long as I can remember. It's interesting to people watch at the fair for sure. And I always end up eating way too much. This year I only had a pronto pup and a cinnaman roll. The most fun we had this year was defnintely in the petting zoo. We got a bag of carrots and Myers loved feeding all the animals.
Due to his allergies, Matt had to watch from outside the petting zoo:(
The only thing that wasn't a real hit was this carousel, but it's because it went REALLY fast.

So last week was crazy. Matt left on Sunday for a conference and got back on Wednesday. I work on Monday Tuesday and Wednesday, so I was alone. I have to be at work at 7. Myers can't get to school until 7:30, so my sister had to be here every morning at 6:45 to take him to school. Matt got back on Wednesday afternoon, and I left Wednesday night for a conference in Biloxi. Wednesday was Matt's birthday, and we basically saw each other long enough for Gina to treat us to a birthday dinner. Thursday morning while I was at the conference I noticed I had 2 missed calls from Myers' school. I called them back (sick to my stomach) and they said Myers had fallen and busted his lip open. I asked if she thought he needed stitches, and her answer was "maybe". By this point I'm about to throw up and bawl cry. Matt went and got him from school. Poor baby's shirt was covered with blood. All the teachers gave him lots of TLC and decided he didn't need any stitches. Instead he got to go to Burger King and get a crown and a milkshake.
This is a really bad picture, but you can see how swollen it was.
Notice that Matt let him go to Burger King in a size 4 (he wears a 24 month) Cubs t-shirt that Uncle Marcus brought him from Chicago. This would have never happened if I would have been in town!
I told myself I was not going to let a month go by before blogging. We have just been having so much fun lately that I have to designate a time to blog. My aunt has Myers today while I go to the doctor (so I'm drinking my delicious glucose drink as I type this). I told myself I was going to update the blog while I was here alone. Myers couldn't go to school today because he had his 18 month check-up/shots. He was the sweetest little thing in the doctor's office. He let the nurse weigh him and measure him and let the doctor do the whole check-up with out any problems. The only time he cried was during the 4 shots!! It was the saddest thing!! Of course emotional pregnant mother cried too. He weighe 27 lbs. 8 oz. and was 33 inches long which puts him in the 75th %ile for both.
