I skipped Shiver Me Timbers Tuesday last month. Not because The First Mate wasn't providing enough material, but because I was being a bad blogger. Although this is one of my favorite posts to write, it's pretty time consuming. I have to go through all the crazy things my two year old has done, sort them, edit, upload, and add my commentary. That's why it was left off my list in October.
The First Mate has been growing up so fast. He seems like he will be driving any day now, so we went car shopping. He went from car to car saying "That one's cool. That one's cool too." I am partial to this mini cooper, but it costs almost as much as my first car did. We'll hold off on the cars for now.
Sometime in the past month or two, The First Mate has developed his "Cheese" face. This is the ridiculous face he makes when you say "cheese" and want to take a picture. Here he is doing his best version of cheese face on a pumpkin.
He has also discovered a new love of bacon. This is his bacon face.
He really is his father's son. Just the other day he was pretending to be The Captain. He grabbed his Dad's wallet, put it in his pocket, and said "Bye, I go get Diet Coke."
Even though he may be a carnivore like his father (but not a soda addict), he still has a love for animals. At a petting zoo he recently discovered how cuddly goats can be. Awe.
However, Ruby didn't get quite the same type of cuddles at home. She doesn't seem to mind though.
He sure has a way with animals. But what would he do if he met a fox? Probably talk to him in interpretive dance.
