Quarter-pint Antics...

I had just sat down at the computer to move some pictures from the camera to the computer and also to post a blog about Quarter-pint when suddenly my computer completely shut off. I was puzzled for a minute...then I looked under the desk...

Yep, that's the power cord for the power strip that the computer's plug into, in his chubby little fingers. So much for surge protection! One of his favorite activities is to unplug anything he can get his fat little fingers on. When he hits the floor in the master bedroom he speeds towards the CO2 detector and pulls it out of the wall. As soon as he's finished, he simply crawls away.

Quarter-pint LOVES to play in the water. He gets really excited when we turn the water on in the bathtub. The other day I had both boys take a bath. We started filling the tub as I helped Half-pint get undressed. Quarter-pint squealed with delight and bounced up and down and tried to reach the toys in the tub. A couple of times I had to grab the back of his pants and pull his little feet back to the floor. He's a little top-heavy and nearly went in head first! When he finally got in the water he played and played and played. What a happy kid! (The ONLY time his hair is flat on his head is when it's wet!)
Quarter-pint has absolutely no idea that he hasn't celebrated a single birthday yet. I think he fully believes he's three just like his big brother. Quarter-pint wants to be just like Half-pint. When Half-pint eats a snack Quarter-pint thinks he needs one, when Half-pint gets a drink I hear Quarter-pint saying "Ah...Ah...Ah" (meaning I want one too!). Quarter-pint chases Half-pint around the house just to be with him and play together. Tonight, I caught Half-pint pulling the cushions off the chair in the living room and virtually made a step-ladder up to the couch. Half-pint was jumping up the cushions to the couch and then going to the other end of the couch and jumping off. I walked into the living room just as Quarter-pint was climbing onto the couch and crawling to the very spot where Half-pint had jumped off. I caught Quarter-pint as he dived head-first off the couch! What am I going to do with this kid???

He is so cute. I can't wait to see him again. I feel like I don't even know him because he was so little when I saw him!

I love that blogs allow us to see how much they grow. I cannot believe his hair. I might need to give him a nickname in celebration of it. My cute nephew "spike" who thinks that he can do everything his brother can do.
