I should tell you it's not the real deal. I just found out about someone who really has Narcolepsy (the second person I've ever personally known in my life!) But this kid has a bad case of the fake narcolepsy. He falls asleep. A LOT. When he is meeting someone new, when he is being silly, when we are playing, when I tell him to go to sleep. But the best, and I mean truly the best, was when he was getting in trouble. He had done something naughty and was standing up on a bed and I was giving him the "talk" and he just fell asleep. Right in the middle of it. While standing. He put his hands on the side of his face, hung his head a little and closed his eyes. I couldn't believe it. I had to try so hard to not laugh. He has since done this a few times while getting the "talk" and I say: "Porter you are not asleep, listen to mommy." Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. But without fail it makes me smile. So sleep on little man...

P.S. All these pictures are his "fake" sleep.

Where oh where has the time gone?

Isn't this picture great? I just love it. That's my kid, sleeping straight up. I wonder what he was doing before he fell asleep. What was he playing? What was he thinking? I have a good time with this kid. He is growing like a weed right now. His vocabulary is really great. People always say things like: "wow, he talks a lot." And he does. Which is good. Because this speech momma of his freaked out when the second he turned 6 months he didn't babble. My favorite things he says right now are "oh, wow, watch, good, chendra (for Kendra), I see that airplane, I see that truck, um, wana watch mater? more chicken, pakedo (it's a secret word that means jump...he can say jump but when he wants to jump on the bed or your body he says pakedo). My not so favorite things are his binky, we are giving it up this week. Call in the forces, this will be WAR. He has a hitting issue, that is actually getting a lot better. All in all we are having a fun time rediscovering the world through his eyes. I'll post more about this almost 2 year old later. Just wanted to drop by.
