Favorite Things

It's been awhile since I've written about the boys current favorite things (here and here) and I like to record it so I will remember...

Calvin's Favorite Things:

Snack - Any kind of bar (granola, cereal etc.)
Animals - Dogs & tigers
Foods - Applesauce, cookies, chocolate (the latter two are not allowed very often but that doesn't stop him from asking!)
Movie - Cars, Ratatouille, and Monster's Inc.
TV Program - Curious George
Song - Head & Shoulders, Knees, & Toes
Books - Officer Buckle and Gloria
Color - Blue
Characters - Mack Truck, Lightening McQueen, Monster's Inc. characters (according to him)
Indoor Activities - Train Table, forts under the tables, coloring
Toys - Cars, Trucks, Planes, and Trains & puzzles

Calvin is still working on potty training but is getting there. He loves letters and numbers and is constantly pointing them out and identifying the ones he knows. He blesses us with his spontaneous 'I love yous' and has even been adding names at the end. He is very affectionate and still likes to be rocked and held. He enjoys his friends and loves to hang out with Mommy.

Patrick's Favorite Things:
Snack - Dried Fruit
Animals - Dog, Elephant, Dinosaur, Giraffe, & Turtle
Foods - Fries with ketchup, chocolate
Movie - Cars
TV Program - Clifford
Song - Head & Shouldres, Knees & Toys
Book - Cars book
Color - Blue
Characters - Cars characters - he know them all
Indoor Activities - Reading Cars book, train table, forts
Toys - All transportation toys but especially the Cars ones

Patrick is growing like a weed and eating us out house and home. :) He is not very interested in potty training lately but we are still working on it. He talks all the time and we love having conversations with him. He is a big helper - always willing to unload the dishwasher, put away coats and shoes, or let Pippi out. He has been so loving towards all of us and always wants to account for the whereabouts of everyone in our family.

I think it's hilarious that Patrick's main interest is Cars, in any way. On the other hand, Calvin agrees with that, but is willing to enjoy other movies and other books, expand is horizon a bit. Oh they are funny!

I love fries with ketchup too! We are over our Cars obsession for the moment but it might come back. The Wiggles are making their dreaded return. Ick!
