Na-Na-Na-Na-Na BATMAN!

JJ is going as Batman this year at Halloween. He is so funny in his costume and will go around singing the song - Na-Na-Na-Na-Na- BATMAN! (I'll have to get video).

We took JJ trick-or-treating at the local nursing home where Aunt B's in-laws live. I am glad that she takes him and gets him used to being around other people who might look a little "different." Many of the residents and staff know him by name and even saved special candy to give him in his bag.

Here is a pic of JJ with his cousin Kalib. He was so scared of Kalib in that costume that he didn't even want to stand next to him.

Pumpkin Time

We have yet to pick out a costume for Halloween this year, but are still preparing in other ways. JJ helped carve his first pumpkin last night with Daddy. The funniest part was when we cut into the pumpkin and took the "lid" off. I don't know if he was referring to the smell or to what he found inside, but JJ made the craziest face and said "Ewwww...poo poo Mama!"

And this is what happened when we were all done with the pumpkin and JJ still wanted to play with his plastic knife...

JJ's Real Big Boy Bed

We transistioned JJ into a "real" big boy bed this time, not just a toddler bed. He was so funny when we went to Wal-Mart to buy his bedding. We painted him an Ohio State Buckeyes room last year when he came home and are definitely not ready to re-paint so naturally I wanted to buy OSU bedding.

While shopping, I was trying to get JJ excited about his new blankies and he kept on saying "No, mamma, don't want" And then he made it clear that he instead wanted "Boom, Chow" blankies, which is his code for Cars. So I quietly put the Ohio State comforter set in the cart thinking he wouldn't realize it was in there, but when we got to the checkout he let out a loud "Don't want football! Boom Chow, Boom Chow!"
Luckily, by the time we returned home and put the bed together, he was in heaven and loves the big boy bed, Ohio State blankies and all.

Super Happy Fun Land

JJ paid a visit one of his favorite places over the weekend...the John Deere Store. Or as we like to call it, SuperHappyFunLand. Jerret had to return to the store again today and JJ was in heaven playing in the John Deere toy area. He tried to carry out 5 boxes thinking he was taking all those toys home and was very upset when Daddy put them back.
His vocabulary is growing like crazy and his teachers have commented to us that he is the most polite little boy. Although, I must admit that this past weekend had us cursing the terrible twos as he showed us that he definitely knows how to throw a tantrum or two!

No! My Baby!

This is a video of JJ manhandling the poor little baby that my sister-in-law babysits. He was actually being very cute, but the poor baby starts to look a little confused. Either way, I can see that he is going to be a very overprotective big brother...
