Yes, that's dirt all around his mouth. It looked even better in person! This boy is so silly!
He just pointed to my belly button and said "Nose", as in, the baby's nose. He loves to feel the baby go "bonk", as he calls it, when Baby kicks. He is talking more and more these days. Common phrases are "She hit me", "I don't want to", "Watch this", and "Look at me!" He is still as sweet as he can be, but also in a very two-year-old phase of challenging what is asked of him. He still has a hilarious sense of humor. He loves to hit the baseball, and does so left-handed. He also golfs left-handed, but will throw and do other things right-handed. He likes to play with trains and cars, and often lines them up in a perfect line. He gets super excited when he sees trains "choo choos" when we're driving. He can recognize a few letters, including J (for Jackson), K (for Kathryn, who he usually calls Sissy), and B. He also counts, although I'm not sure how high he can get by himself. He often gets 1-4 by himself, and then sporadic numbers from there until 10. He likes to point out things that go around ("round, round"). He still doesn't seem to know his colors very well...he guesses everything is either blue or orange. Wonder where he gets that color combo from? :) He's sitting here with me now, and desperately wants to type, so I'll let him close it out.
