Ivan and I will have half of September on our own, with B being gone for 15 days, so we've been trying to have fun and not get on each others nerves. But today was one in a million. Not wanting to take a nap, wanting to wake up way too early, etc. But it's still fun. Some of the things that come out of his mouth crack me up. We were listening to a country station called The Wolf, and there was a wolf howl. Well Ivan came back with "coyote," which he learned from Gampa Jim (Fishy Gampa). So I made a little video for Jim. The other Ivan is showing his new Halloween lights, which he thought were so cool after I put a blinky bulb in it. Well, at first he thought they were broken, but then he thought they were cool.

Ivan is really adapting to his new daycare really well. There are girls there, which there weren't any at his last daycare. And he gets more outdoor time, which he loves!!! On my way to pick him up today I got a text from Launa, the daycare lady who is my friend, telling me Ivan has a girlfriend, and that it's Alexa. Alexa is Kristy, the other daycare ladies, 6 year old daughter. Well I get to daycare, and Ivan is cuddled up to Alexa on the loveseat watching Scooby Doo, and then he rested his head on her shoulder. And... He didn't want to go home with me. He wanted to stay at Launa's. He can't say Alexa yet, but he calls her "my friend." He follows her and says "hi, friend." It is really sweet.

I decided I wanted to hide the bottom part of the deck by attempting to grow some Morning Glory and threading it through some plastic fencing so I can have something pretty next year. But knowing my black thumb, I didn't put too much though into it, or really effort. Just enough. When I went to check it out today, I was pleasantly surprised to see it actually flowered. YAY!!! Hopefully it'll fill out and take over next year. I know it's a weed, but it's prettier than blackberry vines.
