We're all related

We are working on teaching Little Elvis his last name, our full names and our phone number. The last name has really stuck with him, and it pops up in the funniest places.

For fun's sake, I'm going to say our last name is Presley. (It's not, but it goes with Little Elvis and Baby Plum Presley has a nice ring to it as well.)

We went to eat breakfast with the Easter Bunny two weekends ago. Last year, Little Elvis was terrified. This year, he was much more open-minded about it.

When the bunny made his appearance, Bob asked Little Elvis who it was. Little Elvis said it was a bunny. Bob said what was his full name. Little Elvis replied, "Bunny Presley."

We took one day off from our remodel over Spring Break to go to my parents' cabin and visit my father. There's a big bear rug at the cabin. It's real. It's never bothered Little Elvis before, but he was a little scared of it this time.

After we got him to warm up to the bear just a little, he told us that the bear's name was "Mr. Bear Presley."
Then, he decided to feed it a hat.

Baby Plum liked the bear much more than Little Elvis did. I'm pretty sure he's trying to figure out how to get that ear into his mouth in this picture.

My mom took Little Elvis back up to the cabin a couple of days later so we could get a little more work done and he could enjoy playing outside. They went fishing and he caught three fish. He named the first fish "Mr. Sam Presley."

After he got back, we were working on teaching him names. He's decided that the best thing to do when asked about a name is to tack on our last name. He's named my parents Gram and Coachpa Presley. My grandparents also have a new surname. You guessed it. It's Presley.

He's a fun little guy.

He really likes the books "Good Night Sam" and "You Can Do It Sam." They're about a little bear named Sam. I'm assuminghe gets Sam from them.
