Nicky loves splashing around in water with sticks.  One of our local parks has a spring that has been channeled into a perfect stream for little ones to play in.  Because I know the grandparents will be nervous when they see this one, the stream is about 9 inches across and 1 inch deep.  If Nicky progressed any further in his attempts to walk on water, the biggest risk would be getting wet jeans, but luckily Sam is there to prevent even that scenario.  🙂

Nick’s First Phone Conversation

IMG_5405Nicky had a first today.  I was talking to his daddy and Nicky was begging to hold the phone.  Usually he just holds it to his ear and then looks at it and then puts it back to his ear.  This time, I put it on speaker phone and he immediately walked away into the next room.  This is what I overheard:

Sam:     Hi Nicky.  Can you say hi?
Nicky:    Hi-ee.
Sam:     Are you having fun?
Nicky:    Eh.
Sam:     Is kitty there?
Nicky:    Eeow eeow eeow.
Sam:     Where’s your dinosaur?
Nicky:    Roar.
Sam:     What does a monkey say?
Nicky:    Ah ah ah.
Sam:     Good job.  I’m going to hang up and come inside now.  Bye bye.
Nicky:    Bye-ee bye-ee.

So cool!
