Our Funny Boy!

Last week, Colton woke up about 11 or so and we could tell by his cry that he wasn't going to go back to sleep without some help. This usually happens about once every 2 weeks - he usually just needs some milk and a diaper change. So Seth got him some milk and went to get him out of his crib. I could hear Seth laughing when he went into Colton's room, so of course I had to find out what was so funny...

Oh, wait, here's a little background first: We have this pink/white gingham check blanket that used to be my mom and dad's (wedding gift - so it's over 30 years old). When Emily (my sis) and I went away to college it was starting to rip (almost down the center) so we thought it would be cool to cut the rest of it and she could take half and I could take half. So, I've had this half the whole time and never sewed it up. When Colton was around 6 months he seemed to like it so I put it in his crib with him. A while later we realized he was pulling out the batting and playing with it in his hands (we guess for comfort). Since then he's carried "fuzz" around almost everywhere he goes. Even friends have said that they've found fuzz at their place after Colton has visited.

Ok, now that you have the background, when Seth went to get him out of the crib, this is what he found:

Yes, that is FUZZ coming out of both of his ears! I started laughing hard too and so Colton started crying louder... once he got his milk though he let us take the picture!

This same week, I was giving Colton a bath. Once he's all cleaned up I let him play (for as long as he wants) while I go and clean up his dinner mess. I hadn't been gone too long when I heard some splashing and went to check on him and this is what I found:

Actually, I found him standing up on the stool completely with a big grin on his face, but by the time I got back with the camera he had gotten down so I had to have him get back on for the pic! I'm still not sure what he was trying to do - this is why I can't wait for him to talk - I'm sure he's going to have a great reason for doing all of these things!
Yes, this all happened in the same week... Colton and I had gone swimming. When we got home I changed him and left him on the couch watching "Curious George" and decided I could hop in the shower really quick and wash my hair. I was not gone more than 7 min (at the most). I walked back into the family room and smelled a poopy diaper, but I didn't see Colton. I closed the bedroom door and to my shock and dismay found that Colton had gone out to the patio and retrieved one of his poopy diapers (from that morning) - he got it out of the plastic bag and smeared it all over my bedroom door! I thought I was going to throw up! Thank heavens for spray cleaners with bleach and antibacterial soap for Colton! So, if you come over to my apartment and notice a poopy diaper by the front door, just know that it's because Colton can open the sliding glass door but not the front door! (oh and I was so disgusted, I just couldn't take a picture - I'm sure you can picture it in your head just fine!)

I'm so glad you posted the "fuz" pictures- that is too cute! And I can't believe the poop story- You didn't tell me that one! Kathy says Marc and Matt used to take their diapers off all of the time while they were supposed to be taking naps. Then they would did their toys in the poop and color all over the walls! They were very careful to not get any on themselves!
