Blocks and Baskets

Tuesday was the perfect kind of day to just hang out inside and play....or nap. I did both! In the mroning, Isaiah dumped out his entire bucket of blocks, but instead of building with them, he was getting a kick out seeing me pop one in my mouth and then pretend to burp it up. It sounds gross, I know, but his Daddy started this gag with him a long time ago and it just never gets old. What was really funny was watching him try to copy me. After running some errands in Madison and the both of us got good and rained on, Isaiah and I headed home for some down time. I put that kid down for a nap at 2:30 and I put myself down for a nap on the couch at 3:00. It was perfect nap weather: rain coming down, window open, slight breeze.....HEAVEN. Well, I woke up at 5:45 and Isaiah was still sleeping! I got dinner going and went to get him at 6:00. Needless to say, we were both feeling rather refreshed.
On to this morning! New goal around our house: No TV until Sesame Street. Isaiah loves to watch TV, perhaps a bit too much. So, I'm working on it. The TV stays off until Sesame Street comes on at 9:00. We watch Sesame Street until it's time to lay down for a nap, typically right around the time Elmo comes on. He likes his Elmo, but he typically doesn't fight because he's good and tired by that point. Anyway, for our playtime prior to Sesame Street today Isaiah decided to pull out one of his toy baskets and empty it completely. It was so cute because he didn't just dump it.....he picked up every single individual item, considered it a moment, then chucked it over his shoulder to create a pile. He then climbed into the basket, put his head back and (I kid you not) sighed a contented "Ahhhhh...." like he had just set himself up in a lounge chair on the beach with a margarita!
