We've finally found a kid's show that the X Man is addicted to: Bob the Builder. It shouldn't surprise me - after all, he is absolutley enamored with any type of moving vehicle. His most often used word is "auto". He goes crazy everytime he sees a bus or a big truck. He won't go to sleep without at least two cars and the first thing he does when he wakes up is search his crib frantically for his autos.

So yesterday I get home from work and he's sitting on the couch with his toy tractor watching Bob the Builder. He didn't even look at me. I kept saying "Hey buddy, are you going to say hi to daddy?", but nothing could pry his eyes off the tv.

Later on he was starting to get a bit grumpy so I asked him "Wanna watch Bob the Builder?". My God, his eyes got wide, his neck whipped around at me and he started yelling "BA-DA-BI-DA! BA-DA-BI-DA!", then started squealing with delight. I just could not stop laughing.

You remind me of my colleague with this that keeps imitating his little kid who's 2 right now.

Well, these little kids grow very fast nowadays. The next thing you know they are playing football in school. Good to see you are cherishing every growing detail of X man. He can even look back and read this blog [with teary eyes] how his daddy loved him so much.

Sorry for the mushy post. As you can see, its PMS!!!

My to do list:

1. Finish the nursery.
2. Furnish the nursery.
3. Stockpile diapers and babyfood.
4. Invest in Bob the Builder DVDs.

Thanks for the tip!
