Two words and stop signs

Bob and I have two words that we say all the time -- OK and Alright. This past week, these two words also became Little Elvis' favorite words to say over and over again.

He runs all over the house shouting, "OK. OK. OK!" With alright, he usually waits until one of us says it before he starts in with that word.

"Bob" is still one of Little Elvis' go to words. Bob said the other night while they were playing, Little Elvis tried out calling him "Daddy" and "Bob."

Little Elvis also loves to say "stop sign." Here he is standing by a stop sign at a local park. This park is loaded with tons of super cool things that most toddlers would love to play with -- swings, all sorts of slides, monkey bars, bouncy animal seat thingys, all sorts of vehicles, a maze, etc.

But Little Elvis would much rather run around the park and inspect each of the stop signs. There are other signs and he'll point to those, but they don't hold a candle to his beloved stop signs.

We did manage to get him into a bus that rocked, but it didn't last long. He had to go inspect a stop sign, OK? Alright?

Having your kids use your real name has got to be one of the funniest aspects of parenting ever. A few nights ago, my husband said to me, "Calm down, Kristi," after which Isabella repeated the same line.
