Profiles

Hi. My name is Andrew. My hobbies include crawling around the house going "Mmmmm Mmmmm Mmmm Mmmm" and trying to eat every tiny thing I can find on the floor, even ants. I cry when Mom leaves the room. I also like to bang things. And when I hold a toy, I alternate between trying to stuff the entire thing in my mouth and then holding it up against the side of my head for a moment, right behind my ear. It is a special toy holding spot. I also enjoy frequent forays into the recycling box. My favorite place is under the kitchen table. I like eating crumbs off the floor and hair balls.

My name is Becca and I enjoy acting like a baby and never being more than 0.02 inches away from Mom, usually physically wrapped around her neck, standing on her foot, or trying to climb on her back and saying "Ehhh Ehhhh Ehhh" in a baby voice. And, when asked any sort of question like, "Would you like some graham crackers?" I answer with "Ehhhh! Ehhhh!" and a frantic nod or shake of my head while sticking my tongue out. Should I be required to actually use words, I make sure to always use a very clever baby voice. I never let Mom leave the room without following her. And, when left with Dad, I continually ask where Mom is and declare that "I always want to be with Mommy forever and ever."

I also really like pretending to be Princess Aurora. I reenact the scene where Aurora pricks her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel by touching something and yelling "PRICK!" really loudly and then falling to the floor very dramatically. Even in public. Then, I demand that Mom come and pick me up and lay me out in bed and place a crown on my head and a rose between my hands, which are crossed on my chest. Then I make her act like Prince Phillip and give me a kiss and then I wake up. I do this at least 28 times a day. Some would call me bossy. I prefer to say I'm spunky. I enjoy eating candy. Only candy.

What a fun idea! Do let me know when you come to Vegas...Kate and Becca could entertain each other for HOURS. And there's plenty of *stuff* on my floor to feed your baby boy.

Hee! This is a great idea for a post. Also, I'm thinking that Cal will do some of this baby-reverting when the new baby comes. I'm not looking forward to that part.
