Another lazy weekend

What??? I'm innocent!

Preparing to slide
Trying out the new play equipment

Hi Mama!
Future Rams player
He is just like the cat, loves to get in places that he is too big for!!

Last weekend was another lazy weekend in the Lewis house. We got out a little but mostly puttered around the house. Mom and I went and picked up a Little Tikes climber/slide from Aunt Chris. Alison used it when she was little and they are letting us borrow it for a while. Chase loves it.....climbing, sliding, underneath it. He is having a great time with it.

Chase continues to get smarter and smarter each day (no bias here!). He has a book of animals that he can say by name about 1/2 of the animals but when you ask him what animal is which, he can point out about 99% of them. He is just repeating things left and right.....please, thank you, love you, just about anything you ask him to say, he attempts. He loves to try and help me cook. He was helping me mix pancake batter and loved it. I gave him his own bowl and tiny bit of raw mix, turned around and he was trying to eat it! He rarely wants you to feed him anymore, he wants to try it on his own. He loves watching cartoons and can say Spongebob, Diego and Dora when he sees them on TV. He loves to slide down the stairs on his belly to get to the bottom and thinks he has to hold the bannister when going up the stairs.

He is just growing before our eyes and becoming such a little man. He is going to be 2 before we know it!!

Lazy Labor Day Weekend

Building stuff
Giddy up daddy!

Showing Great Grandma his toys

We really sat on our duffs this weekend and didn't do much of anything. I blame the dreary and yucky weather on Saturday for getting us in the rut that lasted all weekend. But it was really nice not to go.go.go all weekend long. We stayed in, played and wore pjs a lot!! Oh well, gotta do that sometimes! It felt good but I still wasn't ready to go back to work on Tuesday.

Chase started with a runny nose and sneezing on Saturday, then stuffed up nose and coughing on Sunday. We think it is allergies since we are all doing the same thing too. He is pretty tired of us wiping his nose, that's for sure. He hasn't been sleeping that great either at night...but on Monday, he took a 3 hour nap....never happened before...guess he was pooped. Last night was a little better, so hopefully he is on the mend and feeling good by this weekend at the Lake. He has lots of playing and entertaining to do!

He's probably saying "wow" or "whoa"

Chase and I got together with Beth and Gavin over the weekend. It was so fun to see them actually play together, interact and chase and imitate each other. It was like a switch just flipped and they realized playing together is much more fun! We made many attempts to get them to sit side by side...but it wasn't happening! They had fun regardless!
