    πŸ™‚ Love it!!

  4. Julie says:

    His daddy’s name is One One, Two. How funny!

  5. 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. πŸ™‚

    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.) πŸ™‚

      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! πŸ˜€

  9. Hurray!
    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!

  10. Use twinkle twinkle little star tune…..for the number rhyme😊
