The week just seemed to fly by. The weather was gorgeous, so Joseph and I spent quite some time outside playing and taking walks. Then we got the added bonus of it being General Conference weekend. I love General Conference! I must admit, with a toddler running around, it makes it a little difficult to fully absorb everything that is said, but I am able to glean little, precious nuggets of truth here and there. Plus, I was able to watch the Priesthood session this time, since it was broadcast over the Mormon Channel on our Roku box. Extra bonus. 🙂
The Weekly Weather: As mentioned before, the weather has been just great! The days are warmer, but not too warm, with an occasional cool/rainy-ish day mixed in here or there. I’ll have to remind myself, once summer hits, just how much I love the other seasons here in San Antonio.
Funny/Cute Stories for the Week:
One morning, I went to get Joseph out of his crib and we had this discussion:
Me: Good morning, Joseph!
Joseph: Good morning, Mommy! I hear sound!
M: Oh, you heard a sound? What did you hear?
J: I hear cricket!
M: You heard a cricket? Did it go ‘chirp, chirp’?
Joseph loves helicopters, only he calls them “hello, copters” 🙂
One afternoon, I was laying on the couch, resting. I felt Joseph come up next to me, and place something on top of me (which turned out to be one of his bears). He then proceeded to do his best to cover me up with a blanket. He then said, “All comfy, Mommy?” When I answered in the affirmative, he then proceeded to climb up and start climbing all over me. 🙂
Joseph was playing with an old Nintendo game controller that Paul has. He came over to me, with the thing slung around his neck. He then held the controller part up to my chest and put the other end up next to his ear. When I asked what he was doing, he said, “Hi, I Dr. Joseph, check heartbeat.” He then proceeded to check it by saying, “beep, boop, beep, boop.” Then he said, “Okay, thanks. I’ll be right back!”
Today he walked up to me and asked me to sing “Grandma’s song”. At first, I didn’t realize what he was wanting me to sing, and then he said, “My little baby?” Then I knew what he was talking about! My mom made up a song and used to sing it to him all the time. The last time he heard it was at Christmas time…yet he remembered it. It goes, “My little baby doesn’t want to go to bed, my darling little baby doesn’t want to go to bed. My little baby doesn’t want to go to bed, my baby doesn’t want to go to bed. My little baby doesn’t want to go to sleep, my darling little baby doesn’t want to go to sleep. My little baby doesn’t want to go to sleep, my baby doesn’t want to go to sleep. My little baby doesn’t want to shut his eyes, my darling little baby doesn’t want to shut his eyes. My little baby doesn’t want to shut his eyes, my baby doesn’t want to shut his eyes.” 🙂 He then asked for the “dooty-doo Grandpa song”. That one I knew to be the one that my mom’s father would hum to his children and grandchildren, but my dad would do it, too, while bouncing Joseph on his knee. What wonderful memories!
This Week in Pictures:
Bonus Video: I actually got Joseph to sing “Itsy, bitsy spider” for me…even though he first thought I was taking his picture (hence why he says “cheese” in the beginning):
