Odd Order

For the last couple of weeks, Tim and I have been gradually teaching James how to drink out of a 'big boy' cup - no lid, no straw.  We are also going to be potty-training him soon . . . and at that thought, in the words of James . . "I don't WANT to go potty in the big boy potty!" . . . so, this should be interesting.  The cutest thing that he now does is order.   We have taken him to a couple of restaurants where he will order his entire meal - super cuteness!!!  Here's a one example . . . .

Waitress:  And what would you like for lunch?
James:  Grilled cheese sanmich.
Waitress:  Would you like fries with that?
James:  No. . . . FRENCH fries.
(Mom:  What do you say?)
James:  Please.
Waitress:  Sure!  What would you like to drink with that?
James:  Um . . . . . barooni and cheese (macaroni and cheese).
Mom:  No, James - what do you want to DRINK.
James:  OH . . . . .(thinking, thinking) . . . barooni and cheese.
Mom:  (to the waitress) . . . Chocolate milk, please.

We thought it was pretty funny - but, he now does this every time he orders.  We're hoping it's just a cute stage and that he doesn't actually want to drink mac and cheese!

So cute. James is getting so big! His ordering is actually far more civilized than Riley's, who as soon as he gets in his chair at IHOP starts shouting, "Bacon! Pancakes! Milk!" in the general direction of the waitress. He will say thank you without prompting, though, and that is sweet!

Love the springy look for your blog. Miss you guys!
