Just Say No!

WE
all thought he was
bypassing the 
Terrible Twos.

In many ways we are
right because he
IS sweet and kind.
However,
he HAS learned the 
power of saying
NO.

I went down to Milwaukee
to watch 
"the boys"
so Mom and Dad could
go see a live performance/taping
of Prairie Home Companion.
They said it was a marverlous
show.

So, during dinner time
as the
MUNCHINKIN
was munching on
crackers, peanut butter,
yogurt and
a few M&Ms..shhhhhh
and watching 
George of the Jungle on
the kitchen TV
I smiled and said to
BigBoyE
"Let Nana take your picture".
NO NO NANA.
NO PSSSHURE!
Please E!
Can you smile for Nana?
NO NO NANA
NO PSSSHURE
NO WIGHTS (flash).
There's no lights, E!
See?
Flash (ha- get it flash- no flash-nevermind)
to pillows
that Mimi made.
Aren't they darling?
NOW can I take your picture?
NO NO NANA
NO PSSHURE...
NO WIGHTS...
STOP!
Okay then...
Look- E- NO lights-
We'll take a picture of the chair
that Mom recovered.
See-NO flash?
Now can I take your picture?
NO NO NANA!
Okay- I give up.
CharlesInCharge 
is too little to say 
NO NO NANA.
I catch him playing with
his toys.
And then he looks at me full on.
Four and a half months old now.
Doesn't it make your heart melt?
And speaking of melting...
try watching a two year
old hold these in his hand....
Guess what?
If you hold them in your hand
LONG enough
they DO melt!
Trust me-
I can't show you a picture
because THIS is what I
got when I asked to 
see a picture of his hands.
Oh- No-
I see a SweetCheeks in the making!
your photo name

  5. Mine won't be 2 till July, but she's been saying no for at least a month now, Diana. Although, sometimes I think she's confusing it with yes when she shakes her head no.

  6. I have had alot of experience working with toddlers. The twos are nothing compared to the three's. Some of the toddlers I have worked with were angels until that 3rd birthday and then they showed a whole new personality. I think because they are smarter and more independant.
    My computer is graying out most of the pictures today and running very slow......oh no not again.
    I did see a couple pics......and those boys are so cute. The baby is loking like a little guy now and adorable.

  11. I tried using M&M's in the studio the other day to get Brycen to stand by the big #1, but he had no clue what they were, or what to do with them. Poor kid must not get enough Grandma time.
    But normally, they will keep a one year old by the one long enough to snap a few pictures.
    Another trick is an animal call. Don't tell him you're planning to take a picture. Just get an animal call of some sort from the hunting department of just about any big discount store and get the camera ready then blow through the call. They will look..... and sometimes they even smile.

  12. Too cute! Little man is a bit camera shy. What a couple of cuties they both are! Loved the chair and pillows. Not as cute as the little ones, but close. lol!
    Hugs,

  13. Such fun. I miss my grandbabies. It is interesting how they love to have their picture taken and then all of a sudden, they don't want it taken anymore.

  14. They are so strong willed at that age. I remember going through alot of that when mine were that young.

  16. Oh my, do I remember those days, except my now 22 year old "boy" was always a ham and posed for every picture. ;) Your cuties are adorable, no's and all. Yes, my heart melted a little, just like the M&Ms. ;)
    Thank you for stopping by.
    XOXO

  18. Diana,
    What a darling post!
    I so enjoyed it.
    My baby boy is now "31". I still fuss over him. He made the comment just last week "that I still treat him like he's 12". Even though he is now a man on his own.... he will always be my "little boy". Enjoy them while they are little!... we know how fast they grow up.
    Your April Fool's Day post was tooooo funny.
    I look forward to the chuckles you bring to us all.
    Will visit again soon.

  20. Too Cute! At least you get half a picture..My kids are old enough to curse me and say "Don't put me on that stupid blog" Then they use the excuse their employer may see it. HAHA

    Oh I used to hate when the M&M's melted. Yucky

  22. Hi there, Oh what sweet cheeks! When my grands got into the "no"stage I would just look at them and say yes.
