Waking Up

After today's nap I heard Brandon roaming around his room with his newfound freedom of getting in and out of bed on his own. Well I finally heard him start to play with the doorknob so I went to investigate. I listened at the door and finally decided to go in. Brandon was standing on the other side of the door and when he saw me he completely melted down. He ran back to bed (even though I told him it was ok that he was up) and told me to leave the room. That he "wanted to do it." So I left (and left the door open) and he got out of bed and closed the door again. I heard him in the room sniffling for a minute and went to sit on the sofa. A couple minutes later I heard the door open again and a very happy Brandon trotted over to me on the sofa and declared "Mommy! I woke up and found you!"

He was quite proud of himself.


Another Conversation with Daddy

Somehow at dinner last night we began talking about Brandon's hair.

Joby: What color is your hair Brandon?
Brandon: My hair is brown Daddy.
Joby: Very good Brandon. What color is my hair?
Brandon: (thinks a few moments) Black!
Joby: Really?! What color is Mommy's hair?
Brandon: (looking at me and thinking hard again) Ofver (other)Black!
Joby: Wow! Brandon, what color is Alex's hair?
Brandon: (now with his hand on his head in a semblance of scratching while thinking) Silver!

So we had to explain dark brown and Alex's blond hair to Brandon. I just thought it was the cutest thing for him to fill in the blank with an appropriate-ish color for blond when he didn't know the word.
