lately dax has been cracking us up in all sorts of ways. here are some of the funnies that have happened.
apparently mommy is not very good at knowing how fast little ones feet grow. when we initially took dax for his first "shoe" purchase, i was just sure he wore a size 4. well, on that trip it turned out he needed a 5.5! so, he had been enjoying those sandals until about two weeks ago when we were finding it harder and harder to squeeze his piggies into those shoes. we knew we needed to go on the shoe shopping trip. well, the other night we went to get him some new shoes and one foot measured a 6.0 and the other a 6.5! they recommended we get him a size 7! holy cow! where is this little baby going? man, we were cramming a lot of foot into not a lot of sandal! needless to say he likes his new speery top siders. he thoroughly tested them out running all over the house this morning.
today will decided he was mega thirsty and needed a drink before we launched another search for dax some new water friendly shoes. in the mall right across from the shoe store was a starbucks, so will figured he could not live without a cool lime refresher. so we got in the line ordered his drink and then headed over to wait for it to be prepared. while making the drink the barista decided to make a little chit chat. daxton decided to chime right in and he exclaimed "love you!" we all chuckled and will confirmed that after he thought about it, he really loves the baristas too.
the other day we were sitting at a restaurant and daxton had just about had enough so i decided i would take him out and stroll him around while will paid for the bill and got our leftovers boxed up. dax and i found ourselves out in front of another restaurant where live music was being played. it was live blues. dax was fascinated by the guitars and singing and could not resist some dance moves. he basically does the hula for his dancing and stood there and danced until daddy was ready for us to go. i think we're gonna have a tommy t. jr. on our hands!
earlier this week dax was playing with his pirate ship and i was working at my desk. i turned around to see what he was doing because he'd been pretty quiet and he had decided to take the top off the ship and place it on his head like a hat. he had apparently been sitting there waiting for me to look at him because as soon as i looked over and started laughing he wsa grinning so big he could hardly stand it!
another day this week daxton decided to use the ladder that i have in his book nook (working on this never ending project) and use it for shelving. he took all of the toys out of the play baskets that looked similar and lined them up on different rungs of the ladder. on one rung we had blocks all the way across, another rung held a giraffe and the parts that belong to it, and then on the bottom shelf we had an array of sippy cups. it was almost poltergeist like in its order and organization and had i not noticed it when i did it may have just spooked me right out of the house!
