Such an intelligent darling
Thank you! He is so much fun! I crave his heart for learning 🙂
Of course his favorite shape is an oval. Eggs are ovals:) Love it!
Lol! Indeed! 😀
🙂 Love it!!
Thank you, Staci! 🙂
His daddy’s name is One One, Two. How funny!
Lol! It’s actually Juan…but I find One to be more entertaining though. The husband is not quite as enthused about it as I am. 😉
I giggled so hard at the name thing because one of my boys does that to one of his teachers. She’s now dubbed Mrs. Pumpkin because her name sounds similar so that’s what he calls her! hehehe
This was adorable. I love that he likes ovals. They are pretty awesome. 🙂
Lol! I laugh every time I think about it!
Mrs. Pumpkin is a super cute name 🙂
I love that he is all about ovals because they are different and unique.
That is so cute and a great way to take a snapshot of Eli’s life in that moment. Found you through Bloggy Moms. And you can tell him that Texasth is the greatest state in the union (might as well indoctrinate him young.) 🙂
Thank you! I do “interviews” quite a bit. Sometimes he is cooperative and sometimes he is not.
We taught our kid “Hook ’em!” pretty early on. lol
I’m so glad to connect with you! 😀
Mrs ortiz eli is soooooooo cute you should video tape him then put it on here then show is to our class if we ever be good there but tell us if we behaveour selvs then we will get a very important superise!!!!!!!!!!
That’s a great idea, Keira! I’ll have to show y’all a video tomorrow of him. Remind me 🙂
Adorable! I’m a new follower of your blog from the Monday Mingle Blog Hop! Would love if you could stop by mine. Thanks :0)
The Three Whiskateers
Hey there! I stopped by yours yesterday 🙂 I connected to your fb page and twitter 🙂
Have you begun helping him to learn what to do if he gets separated from you?
In my book, two year olds learn how to locate
The cashier, and say ” I need Help!”
I train children by introducing them to the cashier of my choice first and discuss their job, and capability. They will likely call out your name to show Eli their prowess on the store system. To train have him show you the way from the back of the store….it is very empowering for him. Next he should be able to tell the cashier his names, your names and
The phone number, pick the one most likely to be with him and teach it by sing ing it.
My children sang 667-6172 , that’s my number I love you….pick a tune he knows.
Sounds like he is ready for safety lessons!
Thank you, Melinda.
We have been working on real names for safety. But I didn’t think of him being able to navigate through the store. We will work on that and on identifying the cashiers.
That’s a great tip on the phone number. As I’ve tried to teach him my number, he starts counting instead of reciting the number. le sigh.
Thank you so much! You always have such great safety tips and advice, Melinda. 🙂
Just give me the last number….I’d love to help think of a rhyme😊
9 is the last one for us.
___-___9 That’s my number, I’m Eli
That’s perfect 🙂 Thank you! I sang it to him, and he is already trying to mimic it. 😀
Use twinkle twinkle little star tune…..for the number rhyme😊
Thank you so much!
