Look who's two!

Last Saturday Koby turned two! We had such a fun day. He woke up to streamers, balloons, and a motorcycle bike. Then we ventured out to Jumpin' Jacks (thanks Devon and Aaron for the idea), a place of big, inflatable slides, and blowup toys. It was only 3 bucks a person! Our friends, the Craigs, joined us. We ate some unhealthy pizza and pop, and then ate some DIRT cake --totally a kid's cake (Koby really enjoys gummy worms). Aunt Emily spent the day with us and Aunt Lisa and Dave joined us for presents and some dirt.

I know every parent thinks their kid is smart, but really Koby has been a little smarty pants since he was a baby. I better write down some of the fun moments before he out grows them...

-The other day I was busy doing laundry. Koby comes in and points to a fuzzy, hairy lint by the dryer and says, "Oh yucky. Yucky, a spider!" Then he runs into the other room, gets a baby wipe, comes back in, bends over and picks up the "spider" in his wipe. He runs it to the trash and says, "I put the yucky spider in the garbage mommy." So often he has witnessed me yelling for James to kill a spider and by the look he gave me I could tell he was trying to protect his mommy from the "spider".

- Koby does this finger trick where he bites off his finger and then blows it back on. Well, lately he has been saying, "I see the Y! I see the Y!"...I never understood until James told me to take a closer look at his little fingers. Sure enough, his finger creases make a letter Y! What a smarty pants. We never taught him that!

-Tony is the guy from P90X. Everyday Koby says, "I wanna exercise with Tony". He does jumping jacks, push ups, squat jumps, sit ups, you name it. He even uses his own 2 1/2 lb weight.He is good at pushing us to get to it. He has been known to bring me my Jillian DVD and say,"I wanna watch the exercise movie mommy." Today we were working out and he must be able to tell jumping is hard for a pregnant lady because he stops and punches the air, "Go mommy go! Go mommy go." I think it made me jump a little higher:)

-Everyday he says, "I wanna watch a football game"...He loves his daddy and he loves watching football with him. For his birthday we got him a Colts football helmet. He puts it on, gets his football, and crouches down with one hand on the floor. He says, "Hike" and tackles.

-I love hearing Koby talking on the phone - He puts it to his ears and says, "uh, Koby Huntington...talkin' to Daddy Huntington."

-Sunday, James took Koby out of Sacrament to change his diaper. Koby grabbed onto the door frame, peaked his head back in the room, and yelled, "Bye mommy. I love you mommy!"

-Some of his favorite things to say:
               -"I'll be right back"
               -"Wait just a minute"
               -"One more time please"
               -"I love you...I love you more"
               -"What chya doin' daddy/mommy over there"
               -"I wanna do it all by myself"
               -"I go to the grocery store. Gettin' food"
               -"Goin to the temple to get married"
               -"Gimme kisses"

-Koby is a good little singer. He knows all the words to the following: Jesus Wants Me For a Sunbeam, Twinkle,Twinkle Little Star, and The Itsy Bitsy Spider. He has confused Old McDonald with Heavenly Father. He always sings, "Heavly Fadder had a pig, e-i-e-i-o". Yesterday I heard him singing in his playroom, "The temple...going there someday".

-I love how he calls himself- "Koby Huntington", James- "Daddy Huntington", and me-"Mommy Huntington".

He is such a sweet kid. He is always quick to give kisses and hugs. He makes our days happier :) We love to watch him grow and develop, I just hope he doesn't grow up too quickly...

So excited for his "Baby Bottle Pop"

Thanks for my blanket Grandma!

He is seriously so cute. I can't believe how smart he is! I can't wait until Jaxon is bigger and can say cute stuff like that.

He really is so cute Meg! I have always been able to tell he is a little smarty pants! Really I can! Hope the pregnancy is going well. :-)
