A little personality and some potty training

Danny is starting to smile a little more.  Twice this week I have heard him stirring awake and gone over to pick him up to have him greet me with a big grin.  
We have also been potty training Davy for two or three weeks now.  Davy is doing really well and drinking copious amounts of water since he gets a small handful of chocolate chips for every job well done.  Blue bear is not doing quite as well.  
Davy has also been sick with a cold for a few days and when he coughs he says, "oh, excuse me, I have a little frog in my mouth."

Today is the first day the whole house has been simultaneously clean since Danny was born.  That of course meant that dinner was not made and Davy watched Sense and Sensibility wearing only his snow boots.  We have been recording some of our favorite Davy lines recently, these have made the list this week.

At lunch:  "You rolled up my ham?  You are PERFECT!"
At the Zoo:  "A zebra!  We must be at the end of the zoo!" (alphabetically speaking, yes.)
In response to What are you afraid of?: "I think I'll pick robots, and tornado sirens, and maybe thunder. but mostly robots."

We have a ton of tornado warnings here and live quite close to the siren.  Every time it goes off we end up spending 30 minutes under a blanket together.  If I say, "I think it is all over" he will say, "I think we should wait one more minute, just to make sure".

He also talks all the time about Blinklochs, a creature that has become his arch enemy.  In case you are unfamiliar with Blinklochs Davy can describe them for you.

-they are really big
-so many eyes
-super many legs
-they eat puppies
-they wear big clothes
-they don't have ears either
-they eat just puppies

We also love our little Danny.  He likes to drift off to sleep right around midnight, which lines up with my ideal bedtime too.  Unfortunately, he likes to wake up at 2 and 5 and then 6 for good, which he makes up for with plenty of napping during the day.  I have been spending a lot of time suggesting any game that involves lying on the floor.
