A month? REALLY?

So, I'm trying this new thing where I only blog once a month! HOORAY!

Just kidding.  This isn't something I'm doing on purpose.  Between Gibson and the little baby in my uterus and the holidays, I just haven't had the time and/or energy to do much of anything besides lay on the couch and cry and watch tv.

...it's more the energy thing than the time thing.  I have time to do things.  I just have no energy with which to do them.


I don't even know where to start, honestly.  Probably you're curious about Gibson, because he's kind of the greatest kid in the world.  So I'll tell you all about what he knows these days!  This is a braggy post.  Get over it.

Gibson can identify almost every letter of the alphabet and tell you the sound they make.  Which is adorable.  "B!  Buh buh!  F!  Fuh fuh!  M!  Muh!"  He has trouble with N (he calls it M), X (looks too much like K), and D (he says B).  But other than that he has it down!

Also he likes to sit in the car and say the alphabet...except he only knows the very end.  So he'll say "R! O! A! B! WXYZ! O! G! B! P! M! WXYZ!"  We hear "WXYZ" a LOT.

He can also count to twenty!  I didn't realize that he had picked up on the numbers past 10 until one day he was like "17, 18, 19, twoteen!"  He can also identify the numbers when they're written down.  But he can't count actual objects...he just says random numbers and then announces how many there are.  It's completely arbitrary.  "1, 4, 5, 1, 3!  THREE CIRCLES!"

Gibson also loves colors.  Purple and pink are interchangeable right now, and so are brown and black.  He LOVES pointing out colors.  If you ever need to know what color something is, just let me know and I'll let you borrow him for an hour or two.  He's a very helpful color-knower.

Shapes are another love right now.  He especially loves circles, but triangles and squares are also pretty awesome.  Hearts and stars used to be his favorites, but they've taken a backseat to "SEW-COHS!"  I am forced asked to draw them approximately 1,254 times a day.

The other day we were listening to Pandora, and One Republic's "Apologize" came on.  During the chorus, this is what I heard:

One Republic: It's too late to apologiiiiiiiiize.
Gibson: SORRY!
OR: It's too laaaaaaaaaate.

When Danny got home he said, "Gibson, what does apologize mean?" And Gibson said, "I sorry!"


Also, in case you wondered, getting him to apologize to me is like pulling teeth.  But he will readily say "SORRY DADDY!" or "SORRY ELLIE!"

He's a turd.

But he's a turd who constantly surprises me with what he knows!  I can't even believe how much Gibson has learned recently...it's so much fun!

Also he'll be two in less than two months.

Which means that I'll have a baby in less than two months.


Also my uterus is huge, in case you were wondering.  This child might very well take after his/her big brother in the size department.  In which case I'll be a house in approximately one month.

If I keep up with blogging the way I have been, I may not be back until the baby is born.  But we'll all pray that I get back here sooner than that, okay?  Because I've missed youse guys!  I hope you're staying warm and not dealing with sickness and all of that!  LOVE YOU BYE!
