NJ really likes to rearrange the cabinet shelf where the peanut butter and jam are. He likes it in particular spots. Sometimes I change it just to see if he'll leave it, but nope, he changes it back.
His strange wave goodbye. It's always with his arm extended as if to try and reach my face with his feet in place.
NJ got a few pieces of M&M's after dinner. He likes to count it and talk about what colors he's going to eat and in what order. He also likes to tell other people what order to eat them in and how. We asked if he'd share and said Auntie Nicole could have four and I could have seven. I told him that it's always polite to give the guests more. Silly. He even told Auntie to turn over each piece so that the M was showing. We all noticed that he was saying Auntie Ma-cole. Strange. He was super excited about coming over and joining us for dinner. I think he was tired because he was acting loopy and crazy. He went to bed shortly after dinner while Auntie and I did some crafts.

"I want it burned." When he says burned, he means toasted. Maybe because he thinks it's one in the same. Or maybe because our toaster is too strong and burns everything so easily. It's the first time this morning he asked for just bread and jam. Probably because he saw me eat it that way, otherwise he's never asked for it. He always wants pb&J.
Unloading the dishwasher has become so fast and easy with the help of NJ. He loves to help with everything. I try to let him as much as I can with what he can do and he does such a great job. I've been giving him a lot of stickers for being a good helper.
"I want to go with you, Mama. Where we going?" On the way to meet Auntie, he asks me to "Drive slow, ok?" After saying, "Why you say, Come on?" Because other cars are not moving!
Some shopping for a little someone's first birthday at Costco and then some Lee's for lunch. NJ pinched me and I wasn't happy about it so he says, "May I pinch you please?" Asking nicely doesn't make it ok!
"Sit here, Mama. I build this for you. Just like the apartment." It's surprises me still that he continues to talk about "the apartment". It was a almost a year ago already.

Went to a morning blood test and came back to my boys all nice and snuggly.
All ready to go to class with his lunch bag in tow.
But first some bubbles!
"May I sit in my seat please?" He wants to sit in his little seat when I'm sitting in it. At least he's asking me in a nice way to move.
He must have learned in class, but it was the first time he made the shape of a heart with his hands. Well, not in this photo because he was covering his eyes from the flash instead.

As I got ready, I had him decorate a card for his friend's birthday. He insisted on cutting out the 4 even though it wasn't necessary. He was more interested in cutting than coloring it. Oh well. NJ was so excited about going to Auntie's house to celebrate Yuuki's birthday that he kept asking, "Why Auntie Janell not here yet?" We were carpooling with another auntie, but he was pretty impatient about it.
This little mr. was playing footsie with Auntie Janell and the birthday girl. They seemed to like sitting next to each other.
Yay, birthday celebration also means cake!
I thought he was done after licking all the frosting off, but no he continued on to finish the whole cupcake. What a treat.We had Ah-ma and Gong-gong (grandma and grandma) over for dinner. NJ was pretty good and really enjoyed their company. :) This is his yogurt and fruit dessert that he decided to hide behind. Silly.
