Failure. Arrgh.

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

Ahoy Mateys-

So, today is Talk like a pirate day, which I strangely love. I spent the last two weeks trying to get Spencer to say Arrgh because I wanted to get it on video for today because I though it would be fun. I tried a million ways, said it all the time, pretended it what was the zoo keeper said in his zoo book. Embarrassingly enough, I even pretended it was the hippo noise, because learning animal noises seems to be his baby super power. He saw through ALL of my tricks. He learned 3 new words this week and none of them were arrgh. Just to spite me. I think my baby is an evil genius. Arrgh. He’s lucky he doesn’t have to walk the plank.

Up to no good

Sometimes things that start cute turn evil, not cute and no fun. Spencer started saying Ow. In context. Sort of. He says it when he pinches us. It sounds so cute. More like Ooouw. At first the pinching was kind of light and we laughed. But then, he started climbing up and grabbing my neck fat, twisting it, pinching it, saying Ow and grinning like a maniac. I can’t say Ow; it makes him do it more. I probably shouldn’t swear, but I can’t help it. But I certainly don’t want him going up to grandma, pinching her arm and dropping an f bomb. I am at a loss. I’ve tried saying no. I’ve tried setting him down on his butt on the floor. I think he is too little for a time-out. Time for some internet searching, I think.

I’m also worried that this opposing action thing could become a trend. I’ve been trying redirection and saying a firm No when he plays with the buttons/cords on the cable box and dvd player. And then he started pushing the buttons while saying no, no, no. Great.

Hanging out in the front yard

We had a little play time in the front yard yesterday. Spencer looks like such a little boy and less like a baby everyday.
