Cuteness...and not so cuteness

My kids never cease to amaze me. They just get cuter and cuter...and now they've started to cop an attitude. Oh, man. I can not stand an attitude...from a child OR an adult. And I have varying levels of understanding depending on your age.

Buttercup, being 1 and a half, I can almost forgive most of her attitude, but I still remind her how we're supposed to be acting. She can throw quite the lying-on-the-ground-screaming-kicking fit. It doesn't get her what she wants, though.

X-man is getting quite the attitude lately. I still remember that he's a child and sometimes it's hard to control all these feelings/emotions/stuff that happens. I'll ask him to go do something and he'll just look at me and say, "No." And what really burns my tush is when he smiles at me after he says it. He knows he's doing something he's not supposed to. And he gets to spend time in his room for that kind of thing.

And he spends lots of time in his room.

As for cuteness, my dad has taught Buttercup how to say, "Mmmm, mmmm, good!" when she eats something. And she shakes her head back and forth when she says it! She also will come up to you, grab your finger and say, "wal" (which means walk). She's got a huge vocabulary now and is even working on two-word phrases! She can say, "daddy wok" (which means daddy is at work) and it cracks me up everytime!

X-man also has cute moments. The other day, we had some relatives over and their son was making X-man laugh. And he was laughing and laughing and laughing. Then X-man stopped and said, "I'm funny!" Of course, that made the rest of us laugh!

Yea for cuteness!!
