Where does he learn these things?

Last weekend, while visiting Bob's dad and stepmom, Little Elvis debuted a new talent -- thievery.

His Grandma Shan brought out some goodies for him to play with. He selected the "best" of the bunch and put them in his diaper bag!

Our son pilfered two plastic bracelets and a California Raisin. Little Elvis hasn't quite learned the art of hiding his actions, so we all watched as he opened up the bag and stashed his goodies.

He's also learning about his strength this week -- picking up the biggest or heaviest items he can find and carting them around the house.

Two of his favorite big items are his step stool and my big exercise ball, which is bigger than he is.

As for heavy items, Little Elvis can open the louvered doors hiding the washing machine and dryer. We have our overflow of detergents beside the washer. This week, he opened the door, squeezed his way in and then brought a full bottle of liquid detergent to me.

Of course he doesn't stop there.

Our windows and mirrors were sorely in need of some washing, so I broke out the white vinegar.

Didn't think Little Elvis would be so excited, but he was.

It was a brand new bottle, so it was pretty heavy. He carried it all over the living room before sitting down to try and pry off the top with his teeth.

I spilled some white vinegar while cleaning and I know he got a good taste of it. He must have inherited my love of tart things, because he continued licking the bottle.

You're gonna have to frisk the kid every time you leave someone's house, now!

Vinegar, huh? My baby hasn't developed a taste for it yet. Though she does like carting heavy things around the house.

Mr. Muscles huh?? I love that he put the things in his bag... she did give them to him... if only to play with... but she did give them to him. lol :)

I love how kids are so honest and just do whatever comes natural to them at this age... it is so amazing to watch them. :)

That is so cute with him liking the vinager and also trying to open the bottle with his teeth and licking it after getting a taste. :)

He is so handsome. And for some reason I'm always amazing and awed by the new things he is doing... like he is just getting so big. :)

Ohh... you have a little klepto on your hands, huh?

Isabella loves carting around things that are way too big for her too. It's so funny to watch, isn't it?

Your sweet little least his has good taste. I love California Raisins!

My kid loves to pull, push, or carry anything heavy. That must just be a universal delight. It is really fun to watch, isn't it?
