The onset on the Twos

So, the Iraq war is not going well, we all survived the phenomenon that was Snakes on a Plane, and Heidi and I recently celebrated five years of marital bliss, but anyway, on to the big news....

Colin's Turning 2!!!!

Cheesy smile

Some would call this the beginning of the Terrible Twos, but we'll see. For the most part, he's a pretty agreeable kid -- as long as you give him everything he wants when he wants it. So, either he's a good kid, or we're very well trained lapdogs.

Someday, I'll have to count the amount of words he knows, just to keep up with the Joneses. Here's some unique ones:

"Big" as in: Big fence, big slide, big pants, etc., etc.
Dope (in response to "What does Homer say?")

Other milestones:
Walking up AND down stairs
Singing parts of songs
Recognizing music and dancing along
When asked, "where's Mommy/Daddy/Frankie/other object?", responds with "There she/he/it is" instead of just pointing.
Partially takes off his own clothes.
Knows most of his body parts.
Calls classmates and teachers by their names.
Knows his colors.
Smiles and scowls. It's pretty funny when he does both simultaneously.
STARTING to know when he needs to go potty.
Opens drawers, doors, and rings doorbells ("ding-dong!!!").
Unscrews and opens jars, toothpaste tubes, hair gel, and every ketchup and salad dressing bottle he can get his hands on.

Essentially, he's into EVERYTHING. And it's like a chess match trying to plot out his movements before he makes them. We're looking forward to our little celebration next Saturday with friends and family. Cross your fingers for nice weather.

And now for your amusement, a photo essay of Colin's game of "Cockapoo" -- or "Peekaboo" to you and me.
