I'm 2 Years Old and Lovin' It

May 14th was a special day this year as Alexei blew out a big "2" year old candle on top of a bowl of chocolate peanut butter ice cream. He has been quite busy attending the Sesame Street show and waving hello at Elmo to learning how to skate and jump on a trampoline.

His personality has blossomed recently into a very humorous silly little boy as you can see with his froggy hat, which he loves to wanting to kiss his Elmo doll each time it wakes up and begins to talk with him. Honestly, toys have come a long way since I was a child. This Elmo doll recognizes if Alexei has put him down for a nap and picked him back up, a bit disturbing if you ask me. But the best part about it is Alexei's surprise face (will post pic soon). His mouth drops wide open and his eye brows flicker up in a frozen state. Simply hilarious.

I was in the store two days ago and a favorite show of ours is "Gavin and Stacey". I really did not think Alexei paid much attention to the show when it is on as he is usually playing with his toys. The show is a British comedy with characters from Essex and Whales and there are particular lines used frequently. Alexei is in the grocery cart and I am searching for something or other on a shelf, suddenly I hear quite loudly "OY"! I stopped, looked over and thought nothing of it, maybe I didn't hear correctly. "OY!" came from the cart again so I turned around and looked at Alexei as he had his hand out trying to get my attention. He says quietly, "OY". I sat there for a few moments thinking what in the world, where did you ever hear that?! "Gavin and Stacey" came to mind and I couldn't help but start laughing out loud in the store. If you ever hear someone say it, you know what I mean. It was hilariously surprising coming from my two year old as if he had been saying it for ages.
