Dallin's Tricks

Dallin has figured out a few new things this last week. Some have surprised me and some have made me go "What! Where did you learn that?" He sure is growing up fast.

Dallin loves to help me cook dinner. He stands on his chair and plays with his own spices. I was surprised to turn around and find a few stacked. I love his hair- time for a haircut. He got up from his nap and it was a mess.

Don't ask me how Dallin did this. I got him up from a nap with an arm out of the long sleeve. All I can say is Talent!!

I wonder where he learned this. He just figured out how to unscrew tops (yes I know I am in trouble now). He loves to throw garbage in the trash. I came in the kitchen and he had found the empty oj. He had gotten the top off and was trying to get the last drops. Hmmmm- Ryan did you teach him this way to drink?

Ryan has been working on all the weeds we have. Dallin found the plunger in the garage and was trying to be just like his dad. He was making the same motions as Ryan was. It was fun to watch.

Whenever we hand Dallin a tissue or klennex he will wipe his mouth and nose. He's wiping his nose now. It's fun to watch him really get into wiping his mouth at dinner time.

Helping To Clean

Last Friday I was cleaning the house and Dallin sure was a big helper. I was in the bathroom and put cleaner in the toilet and went to get the toilet brush. When I came back he had grabbed my rag and I think he put it in the toilet because it was wet. I first found him cleaning the rocking chair. Then when I was done in the bathroom he was cleaning our kitchen floor. He was so cute to watch because he's never done this before. He was my big helper and made cleaning fun!

The tub is dirty!

I'm cleaning my room too!

I put cleaner in the toilet and he got mad when I started to clean it. Guess he wanted to do it.

The never ending conversation

I wish I had a picture of this but I had to post this. The other day we went to dinner to El Camino. They have a couple of smaller rooms. We sat down and Dallin was really good. He drank his juice and we decided what we wanted. Then, just after we ordered a man with his 2 kids around 8 and 12 sat down diagonally to us. Like I said, it was a small room so they weren't very far from us. Dallin turned and saw the girl and boy. Well, he decided they needed to hear his life story (that's what it seemed like). He started talking and didn't stop. You can't understand him but that doesn't slow him down. Ryan and I laughed because we got his back and he wanted to talk to the other table. They were really nice and egged him on by making faces and talking back to him. Even after our food came he didn't care. He was still telling his story and getting louder and louder. We did get a stare from a man but what are we suppose to do. He was happy and loving life. As a lady left she told us he was sure full of life and a cutie. We hurried and ate and of course as we left he said bye-bye to everyone. They got to eat half of their dinner in peace. I have to say by the end I was a little embarrassed because Dallin was showing off and being so loud. But at the same time- he was happy and wanting everyone to know! All I have to say is Memories! This is a keeper. I wish you could have been there.
