Geography With the Bear

Stan B is learning his United States and who lives where. He's pretty good most of the time but then ends up saying that Nana and Tuka live everywhere and that Auntie C lives in Idaho and we live in NC and Papa is Carter's papa and Grandma sometimes lives with Tuka and he refers to Grandma and Grandpa as Grandpa and Grandpa. At least he knows where Texas is, even if he initially puts it there upside down. Enjoy and happy Friday!

PS Sorry no post yesterday. I have been sick as a dog.

Stan B is very expressive. He loves mimicking the facial expressions of characters in books that we read. Here is his expression for being excited:

Rock Star

Here's another video from last fall. He is singing and rocking out. His words are gibberish(to me) but every now and then I could pull out an actual word. When you hear him say something that sounds like "sh*t" or "shoot" he is saying the word "foot". When you hear him say "batsh*t" or "birdsh*t" he is saying "barefoot". He also counts to three and says "home" and something like, "Dickie look." when Dickie the Cat is watching him sing.

Just a reminder, these are just snippets of his performance. He did this for a while. He's got so much energy; it's amazing.

Is It the Cat?

Stan B has been into playing peek-a-boo for a while now. He even started playing this funny game where he wanted us to pretend that he was a dog, cat or squirrel. It's pretty hilarious. Especially this night when he's hiding behind the door frame and when we say, "Is that a dog?" He answers us back and says something like, "No, Stanley." Have a look-see:

Drummer Boy

When we walk downtown we walk by the music store that has guitars, horns, ukuleles, and drums in the window. One day we walked inside because I thought Stan B would really love looking at the instruments up close.

When he saw the drum sets he really wanted to hit them. One of the employees sensed this and gave him two drumsticks. So, I sat down on the stool and Stan B sat on my lap and went to town. He did good and had fun!
