Geeky 365 -- Day 129

Sometimes trying to take a daily picture of an active, crazy 2 year old is quite an adventure.  He jumps and laughs and does not ever want to sit still for me to take a picture.  I try to get him to smile...I try to get him to sit....I try to get him to just stay put...sometimes I manage to get a good shot or even a great shot.  More often though I end up with a group of them that make me laugh...that is definitely the case tonight.  Here are some highlights of our nightly photography "session":

Geeky 365 -- Day 128

I took the weekend off of blogging.  Usually if I miss a day I go back and make posts for the time I missed but I do not plan on doing that this time.  I needed a few days to just relax and not put a lot of thoughts into things and since O was with his daddy for the weekend it seemed like a good time to do it. Now I'm back in full swing and am feeling much better.  Today was a beautiful day here.  It was over 65 degrees when I picked O up after work so they were playing outside.  We ran to the grocery store and then took the cart through the car wash.  I thought that was pretty awesome.  He asked to do it again. We made burgers and had shipper with the windows open in the house.  It definitely felt like spring around here today.  It was great to be able to play outside. It is supposed to cool off some this week but it is still amazing weather for January.  You won't hear any complaints from me or the kid.
Orion loved he car wash

Geeky 365 -- Day 127

Orion was a crabby little boy this evening.  I don't think he got enough sleep last night.  He got really upset when I asked him to eat supper.  It took him almost 20 minutes to calm him down.  Poor little dude spent the rest of the evening wanting to just snuggle up with me and talk.  He helped me pack his bag for the weekend and by bed time his mood was a lot better.   Nights like this make me realize just how spoiled I am by O.  He is usually such a great, fun, happy boy that I don't always know how to react when he is sad for no reason.   Hopefully he gets some good sleep tonight so that he can be happy and have a great weekend with his daddy.

Geeky 365 -- Day 126

Orion loves doing things on his own. He has started to do so much stuff on his own. If he were taller I think I would probably be in trouble. He can't reach light switches yet which means that I have to help him some after dark. Otherwise he is incredibly independent.  He now will go to the cabinet, pick out a movie, open the case, and put it in the xbox to watch. He likes to pick out his own clothes and tries to dress himself. He is growing up so fast. It's hard to believe that he will be three in a little over a month.

Geeky 365 -- Day 125

Orion once again got to spend the evening with his dad.  O was pretty tired so they pretty much bounced back and forth between wrestling and watching movies.  From the moment I picked O up from school he kept saying "my daddy here?" over and over until he finally saw him in the driveway.  O couldn't wait for him to get in the house and met him at the door with lots of squeals and smiles.  There is never any question about whether O loves you or not.

Geeky 365 -- Day 124

Cooking with Orion is always so much fun.  He is super helpful and seems to really enjoy cooking.  It's really entertaining to watch him learn and hearing his step by step commentary.

Last night we made some cheeseburger macaroni and he was super involved with every step.  It's scary to see my little one standing at the stove, spoon in hand, cooking away...but it's also pretty awesome that he wants to be so involved.

It's definitely something that O and I can do together and have a good time.  It's nice sometimes to have an extra set of (tiny) hands in the kitchen...and I could listen to this adorable little voice all day long:
