Six Weeks and counting
Today when he decided napping was for the weak, he was looking at me saying (between making an elephant noise, don't ask me its new, and I found it utterly hilarious, but I couldn't laugh as I was trying to get him to go to sleep) he was saying to me: "Da, dada, da da da da da, da-dee." However, the inflection in his tone really said: "Dad wouldn't be making me sleep right now, Daddy would be playing with me. By the way, where is Dad? Haven't seen Daddy around in a few days. The dogs warned me of this, that you and Dad just disappear and they have no clue if you are ever coming back, I had begun to think those dogs were crazy, but now I am inclined to believe them. I better not fall asleep, what if you disappear too? Did I mention that Dad wouldn't make me take a nap?"
On Sunday we spoke on the phone to Kevin, and Jameson lit up. He was so excited, he totally recognized his voice and was just thrilled. Ever since then he picks up the phone ten times a day and says " 'i Da!" (hi dad) and then has a very funny "conversation" because he laughs a lot "Kevin style" throws his head back and chuckles. I have enjoyed watching my little boy have these conversations where he nods his head, laughs and talks a lot about "Da." Right before I took the video below, he was having the longest most engaging conversation, and it made me get the camera, I tried to get him to do it again to no avail. I did get a snippet of it though.
Enjoy the week. I am working on my Istanbul posts, overall, it was an AMAZING city. I loved it.
