Comedy act

Just a few bits of Marco’s ongoing comedy routine…

Marco: Mommy, I’m tired.
Me: Me too.
Marco: Oh no. Mommy, you’re five tireds!

Marco slipped on his step stool after brushing his teeth, and smacked his little bum on the edge. He started wailing and with tears streaming down his face, yelled: I NEED A NEW BUM! MOMMY!
Me: Marco, you don’t need a new bum! It’s okay.
Marco: I need a band-aid on my bum!

Marco: You my fwend?
Me: Yes, I am your friend.
Marco: Daddy my fwend, too?
Me: Yes, Daddy is your friend too.

After finding Marco in bed with two cars and a train whistle:
Me: Marco, I told you no books and no toys in bed!
Marco: Mama! I no has no books!

Tim tried to put him in bed at 7:55pm. Marco looked at the clock.
Tim: Marco, it’s bedtime.
Marco: No. Not like this! (he stood with his arms at the 8 and 12)

Marco: Mommy, you silly.
Me: Why am I silly?
Marco: You kiss Daddy! You silly.

One of our favorite radio stations is 89.9 KDFC, a classical station. We listen to it every morning on the way to school. One morning, we heard one of my favorite pieces, ‘Night on Bald Mountain’
Marco: Wow. That song is crazy.

Marco, Tim and I were getting ready in the morning. He started staring very intently at my wedding/engagement rings.
Marco: What that?
Me: My wedding ring. It means that I am married to Daddy.
Tim: Yep, mommy and daddy are married. I have one too.
Marco: Me too! I’m married too.
Tim: Who are you married to?
Marco: I married to Mama!
Me: You can’t marry mama.
Marco: Otay. I marry teacher Lizzie.
Me: She’s a little too old for you.
Marco: Umm…I marry Judah. (his best friend)

Marco came into the living room after he was tucked in for the night.
Marco: There monsters in my room.
Me: What do we say to monsters?
Marco runs down the hall to his room.
Then he slammed his door.


This boy

loves his soy ‘chik’n’ nuggets.

He also is 33 inches tall and weighs 29 1/2 pounds. WHOA.

New words (previous list HERE)
Instead of ‘otter’, he now says WaaWaa (Water)
Pees (Please)
Nana (Banana)
Elp (Help)
Dow (down)

Marco now tells us whenever he wants or needs a diaper change.

He’s been out of the high chair for awhile, but now he’s tired of the booster seat with the tray attached; we’re starting to leave off the tray and let him eat from the big boy table. 🙂

Marco loves to read his books, and lately his favorites are:

I Am A Bunny by Richard Scarry
Brown Bear, Brown Bear by Bill Martin Jr/Eric Carle
Mr Pusskins: A Love Story by Sam Lloyd
any of the Sesame Street board books (he likes to point out the characters)

Marco is starting to like Caillou on the Sprout channel, and the other day he was trying to sing the theme song. So cute!


Marco’s grown so much in the past month, and I want to keep as faithful a record as I can of his development – so here’s the list of words and phrases he’s said in the past few weeks:

Woo (Roux)
Abeler (Stabler)
Co (Chloe)
Tank oo (Thank you)
Elcome (You’re welcome)
Otter (Water)
Ape (Grape)
Nigh-nigh (Night night)
Ga-ga (Grandpa – lol Lady Gaga)

He gives lots of kisses and hugs, and likes when we give his stuffies kisses. Today, he even grabbed his monkey and his Pooh bear and had them kiss. SO ADORABLE.

Marco’s eating habits are still good; the only change is he won’t try meat. I’ve given him chicken (he’ll sometimes eat if I put in a quesadilla), turkey (no), fish (no). We’re thinking it might be because he’s never seen me eat it – I don’t know if that’s something he’s picked up on, and thinks that it’s bad. If we put meat or fish on his plate, he eats everything around the meat. My vegetarian boy, I guess! His favorite foods right now are:

Grilled cheese – we’ve started using a new recipe, from Deceptively Delicious; the grilled cheese with Butternut Squash puree is so good! Marco is enjoying the change!
Whole wheat crust mini pizzas
Soy nuggets
Coco Pop popcakes from Whole Foods – super tasty organic whole wheat, corn and rice cakes
Tomatoes! He’s been so happy with our tomato plants in the garden; he loves to pick tomatoes and snack when we play outside.

During our trip to Disneyland, we stopped off at a CPK for dinner – he ate the entire plate of pasta shown above! LOL

He’s wearing a size 18 months in regular clothes, but his pajamas are all 2T or 24 months; his shoe size is 6.

Our little guy has all of his teeth now, with the exception of his 2nd molars. Evidently those will show up by the time he’s 3. I’m pretty impressed with his chompers!

I’ll be posting a few videos soon, so stay tuned.
