- We have dinner at Natachees, which happens to be directly infront of a rail stop. Brock spends the entire time watching the "trains". One comes about every seven minutes. That is almost all he does while we are there
- I get him a air ping pong gun, the kind that squirts out a ping pong ball, with a nice pop. His new favorite toy. He loves building a tower of blocks, and shoot them down.
- Go to a gymnnastics party or a bounce house party, and he wants to play catch
- On the gymnastics mat, he loves to run and tumble, but not in a somesault way. More in a run full speed, jump, and land on his knees and then roll to the side kind of way.

So I put both my hands in the air.
"Big boys only put one hand in the air," says Brock.
Then somewhere along the way, he asked me a yes / no question, to which I replied "uh-hun" and he said "yes or no... you have to say yes or no"

Brock said it was an "art-tar", as in guitar art. I was unsure if this is what he meant, so I asked him if he ment "guitar". He said "no it's an art-tar". I asked him if he meant it was "art", and he said "no, it's and art-tar". I asked him if it was guitar that was art, and he said "yes, an art-tar".

Granted, it still takes him at least an hour to fall alseep, but it is all on his own.

I have know idea how he picked this up from me.

He did great... he was able to swim enough (not really above water), that I could reach him from the side. And when I pulled him out, he was most upset that he got his pajamas wet.
We talked about what happened, and how we always need to be safe around the pool.
He was swimming an hour later, clearly not even phased by it. (I was hoping for a little phasing, so that maybe he might learn from it.... we'll see).

We made the mistake of telling Brock on Friday that we'd be going to the lake the next day. He was so excited that he slept for 5 minutes, woke up and was ready to go to the lake.
Then we tried to convince him that it would be after breakfast... So he wanted cereal at 9 at night.
He is so excited to go on the boat.

He has got to be super toasty.

There is a Hebrew sing called "dayenu" (di-e-new). Which the kids, going to the jcc, love to sing.... It starts with
Di di enu.... Di di enu
Anyways this morning, Quinn said she had diarreah. Brock breaks out with
di di reah, di di reah
I'm sure you had to be there, but it was hillarious.

It ended up on his nose and mouth area. F**K.
I wipe it off with his shirt, and we go to the bathroom to wash our face. We drink as much as we can from the fountain. The bathroom only has paperless options, so I have Brock put his face in my cupped hands full of water.
We come home an wash with a wash cloth and give him a whole bottle of water to drink.
I guess we are on poison / irritant watch.

Brock is doing great on his potty training... We are averaging 0 to 1 accident per day... even usually going poop in the potty. Still at the vigilance stage from us, as he usually doesn't indicate he had to go himself (unless it is after bedtime).
He does a little dance though whenever he does manage to go.poop.
Also, he often doesn't point down enough, and sometimes pees over the edge of the toilet and onto his pants.

"No like it," as he is famous for saying.
A minute later, he takes another big sampling. Splits it out, again "No like it"
This repeated 2 more times. Then the fifth time, we actually cut of a small piece of the cheese for the kids to have... again spit it out.
As I'm amazed that Brock clearly doesn't learn that he doesn't like Parm cheese, another part of my brain was jumping in with the following internal dialogue.
"Don't mention anything!!! He just tried something he didn't like 5 times. This is gold! Quinn figures out she doesn't like something after -1 tries, Brock never figures it out...... this is good, keep your mouth shut about the wasting food"

Its great to be loved
When they are sick though, they will literally take the food out of their mouth. Drink from their cup, and share food and utensils as if they were the same person.
