Colton Sings the Blues

I haven't caught him on video yet singing Ring Around the Rosey but here is Colton singing his other songs.

22 Month Update

I think every time I blog I talk about how amazing Colton is ... so I'll just jump right into what he's been doing the past month ...

  • Can sing Twinkle Twinkle, Wheels on the Bus, Bringing Home My Baby Bumblebee, the alphabet, Itsy Bitsy Spider and Ring Around the Rosey
  • Knows his name (says Tolton)
  • Really enjoys riding his tricycle - It broke my heart a little the other day when Colton turned to me, said "bye" and blew me a kiss and then rode his bike down the sidewalk!
  • Told Mommy to “drive” which means put both hands on the steering wheel
  • Really began using “mine”, "Tolton do it", "me hold it", etc.
  • Really into Toy Story 3 - told us he was scared of Lotso Huggin bear when he saw a picture of him
  • Really into trains, tractors, dump trucks (junk truck), semi trucks, school bus, fire trucks – he’ll say “thatsa biiig truck”
  • Will come up and say “I wannit … yeah … okay” and take whatever he was talking about - I guess because I'll say "Colton do you want fruit snacks" and he'll respond with "yeah" and I'll say "okay"
  • I’ve been calling Colton a monkey because he likes to climb things and he’s always clinging onto me like a monkey (I’ll say “Colton you are such a monkey”) – but now whenever Colton sees something climbing or if he is climbing he’ll say “me so monkey”
  • Colton kept telling me there were spiders in her ears.  He'd say “Mommy spider”.  I said “Where?” Colton replied with “In my ear … blow it” so I blew air in his ear.  Then Colton said “Mommy too hard”.  It took me 3 days to figure out that he meant whispers instead of spiders.
  • Colton got a new swingset this month and he absolutely loves it. It has a curly slide, a straight slide, swings, a fort with a steering wheel and telescope, and custom stairs (because daddy didn't think the rockwall method was safe enough for Colton - I agreed). He loves to swing high and will tell you to push "high in the sky". We just need to finish up the sandbox and it'll be complete!
  • We are slowly working with Colton on potty training.  He likes to talk about pee and poop and he's aware of wet, dry and poopy.  But he doesn't understand to go on the potty just yet.  We're not pushing it too much but at least he's talking about it.
