This morning at the chiropractor, Katie finally decided to get adjusted on the "airplane" (tilting table) like Mama and Sammy instead of across mama's knees.
I bought Sammy a mattress & "bunkie board" (similar in concept to a box spring but only 1" thick) for the twin bed frame in his room. He couldn't even wait for Daddy to get home to help me get it out of the truck. "Sammy need big boy bed!" He insisted on climbing in the back of the truck (with help of course) so that he could help me get it out right now, because "Sammy need big boy bed!!!" Did I mention that "Sammy need big boy bed!?!?!?" But is he sleeping in it? Noooooo. Perhaps that will change tomorrow when his Very Hungry Caterpillar sheets and comforter arrive.
Speaking of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, he can pretty much recite the whole book by heart. The other day he asked me to get an apple for his stuffed VHC toy to eat through. We didn't have one, so I gave him 3 plums instead.
Katie likes to sing "The Itsy Bitsy Spider." Over and over and over again. Sammy can sing all of it by himself. His favorite song right now is Wee Sing's "She'll Be Comin' 'Round the Mountain (When She Comes - Toot, Toot!)" If we listen to that once in the truck, we have to play it over and over the entire drive. If he forgets to ask "wit-ten dis song a-gin", Katie remembers! This could get old when we're going all the way across town, except for the ear-to-ear grin in the rearview mirror, and the sound effects coming from the back seat!
