We've had a rough few days here, mostly due to teething (I think) so I decided to make a list of things Barrett has done that have made me laugh out loud in the past few weeks/months:

*I tried to teach him that there was a baby in Momma's belly and when I asked him where the baby was, he pointed to his own tummy.

*He's invented a game that he plays with Daddy where Barrett touches something and says "HOT!" and then Daddy says "NOT HOT!". It cracks Barrett up every time.

*He pretended the cat's tail was a telephone. He held it right up to his ear and said "Hello!".

*He tried to dress himself and managed to put his foot through the armhole of his pajama shirt.

*In an attempt to take a picture of him, I said (kind of sternly), "SIT DOWN, PLEASE!" and he said "NO SIT!!". This was the first time I'd heard him put two words together.

*He fed string cheese to his toy fire truck.

*We took him to Barnes and Noble to play at the train table and he picked up a train and proceeded to run around the store, shaking his head and saying "BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ". He has since started doing this almost everywhere we go.

*He insisted on wearing his bright green rain boots when we went out to run errands, even though it wasn't raining.

Lake Michigan

On our last day of vacation in Michigan, we went to a beach on Lake Michigan with Grandpa, Grammy and Great Aunt Gina. There was a nice playground where Barrett enjoyed swinging and climbing about. We took our shoes off and headed down to the water, where Barrett had an even better time!

Here he is exploring the sand:

Pointing at Momma and Daddy, who were standing in the water:

He loved wandering all over the huge beach:

He also loved putting his feet in the lake:

It's too bad you can't hear him, because he's squealing with delight here:

Cold water!!

How cute are these footprints?

Walking around with Great Aunt Gina:

Walking off on his own:

Looking back to make sure we are still there:

Playing with Daddy in Lake Michigan:

Uh oh, Daddy, Barrett's shorts got all wet with that last wave!

Digging in the sand:
