I remember, several months ago, when I thought about what it would be like when Lucas was talking. Not baby-talking but actual words and sentences, coming from a two year old. How fun would that be? His talking really picked up right around 25 months and from there has just skyrocketed. Every day is new words and sentences and every day, I am reminded to talk nicely and in a gentle tone because if I don’t, my two year old will repeat it!
Here is part of the conversations we had on our walk today to the store.
Boat! I need a boat!
Yeah, there is no water.
This rock is too big.
I need to vacuum mommys car. (Isn’t he a sweet boy? Already cleaning my car for me!)
I’ll wait to ask daddy.
Cough in your elbow mommy.
I want to put the water bottle in the stroller.
Joshua isn’t in the stroller.
Yeah, on mommys back.
The dirt is icky. (And I told him, “No it’s not icky. It’s just….. dirty.” I didn’t know what else to say! Ha.)
It is so fun talking with him! I love being able to communicate and understand what he is saying.
The grocery store is a mile from our house, which is perfect when I need to get just a few things. We can walk there and back and use the chunk of the morning. Going toddler speed of course, and stopping to pick flowers, rest in the grass and jump off rocks. He got in the stroller about half way through and I got in a good little workout speed walking.
Yes, I buy my children snacks while we grocery shop. I am not ashamed.
So, along with things for dinner tonight, one of the things I wanted to get were “puffs” for Joshua. I don’t think he’s ready for cheerios, but I want to try puffs because I know they dissolve easier in your mouth. I don’t remember exactly from what we got for Lucas, but I think there is an organic kind. (?) I think I might have got it at Target. Anyways, I assumed Fred Meyer would have it.
The “regular” baby section just had the Gerber brand, which I’m not really a fan of. (The ones on the right said for toddler.)
I’m a little bit confused on their organic/healthy/regular categories because in the same section they had these organic baby food packets. Anyone tried these? Do you like ’em? They look interesting.
So, then, I walked BACK to the other side of the store – all the way over there – to the “natural living” baby food section, thinking they might have the organic puffs.
But all they had were crackers!
No go at Fred Meyer. I guess I’ll have to make a trip to Target to see if they have what I’m looking for. That might just be the worst thing ever. Not. 🙂
I accidentally bought too many things at the store and had to stuff everything in the stroller to get it to fit.
I’m making spinach, feta & mozzarella cheese quesadillas for dinner tonight. MMmmm! Also a salad and tomato. I got a sweet potato for Joshua, but I’m not sure what to do with the thing. Bread — the cheapest and healthiest is $2.50. Oh, those are green onions I guess, which are going in my dinner. I think this was my first time buying them. My husband will know what to do with them.
I only bought one yogurt. I pretty much stopped buying them because they are too expensive. When my parents visit I’m going to have them stock my fridge with yogurt. Don’t tell them. You can buy them in bulk at Costco, which is the cheapest route but they only come in Strawberry, Blueberry and Peach flavors and I really only like Strawberry and Raspberry. Maybe if I were less picky I could save myself some money.
