Just Say TWO!!

John is a funny little boy.
As most of you know he will not call me Mommy...every now and then I will get a "Mom" but most of the time he calls me Tina. It's not just Tina...it's "Teeeeeah" in a loud almost Tarzan like call. At first I bargained with him, pleaded with him, and begged him to please call me Mommy but he would not hear of it...and now it is a game that I laugh at. I will say it does help when I get separated from him & Randy at Wal-Mart. John and Randy will be across the store but I can hear him yell..."Teeeeeeeah" and I know exactly where to find them!

The latest thing is counting. I have been working really hard...and so has Randy and my Mom to teach John how to count. We have started by trying to teach him to say he is two.
The BOY will not have it!
See below...hope you enjoy!

Cute, but he is so-o-o-o playing you. He knows exactly what he is doing. It probably doesn't help that you all laugh at him. (positive reinforcement) Anyway, what does he say if you say "one"? Also have you tried to have him count objects such as Cheerios? Point and count "one, two, three." I wouldn't worry about it too much. It makes for some very cute memories and some great ammunition for his rehearsal dinner!

He is hysterical! Steve and I watched twice and just laughed. If it makes you feel any better, Steve reminded me that Braxton wouldn't include 3 in his counting for quite awhile either.

O....M....G....I haven't laughed that hard in AGES!!!! I'm calling Mimi and Grandma Duke ASAP to make sure they watch this video. They just love to hear stories about him. :)
