I think I'm happy, but maybe I'm about to cry! I'm so confused and I don't know what I want to do!
Tigger is ten months old now and he's pretty sure that he is no longer a baby. He's got the lightning fast crawl down pat and is starting to do the bear walk, on his hands and feet rather than the knees. He pulls up and cruises around and uses walking toys and gives us all his fabulous one-dimple smile.
And even when he's feeling sad and serious he's just as cute. Those eyes just kill me. He's got Puss in Boots eyes all the time without even trying. Thankfully he hasn't learned to bat his eyelashes yet but look out once he does! :) I did have a two year old one time who would blink slow and bat his eyes on command when you asked him to "flirt". If Tigger does that, he will be denied nothing. Ever.
Roo calls him Bubba and it's kind of sticking as a nickname for everybody. His name is a little bit longer, and while it's not terribly difficult to say, Bubba is way easier when you're two. The other day he was under the weather and so Kanga and the kids stayed home. I was hanging out in the playroom with the girls and Stitch kept asking me something I couldn't understand. I thought she was talking about a baby, since we were playing with the baby dolls. Then I realized she was saying Bubba but I still didn't connect it with Tigger. She was super frustrated with me. Finally she stood up and came very close to my face and said, "HEY! Where is the BUBBA of ROO???" OH! That guy. :) He's home sick today, babe... and now he's Bubba all the time to all the girls.
I am manly. I eat Kix. And if you do not agree with me, I will show you my tall one. (that is what the Wiggles call that finger when they sing Where is Thumbkin?. Kanga and I think it's hilarious.)
