I think Cope and I might be creating a monster. He now LOVES to play Guitar Hero with Cope in the evenings. He gets so excited to be doing something cool with his Dad. Also, we took him down the big water slide at our neighborhood pool this weekend. It goes really fast and dumps you way out and under the water. Ramsey would giggle the whole time and come up signing and saying "more, more". He is such a brave kid. Some of the 4 and 5 year olds at our pool are scared to death of it but not our 18 month old. He is WILD and seems to be fearless at this point (good and bad thing I suppose?). Either way he has a blast. He can also tread water on his own with floaties for a few minutes at a time now. It is great because it wears it him out way more and he is totally pooped afterwards.

Ramsey especially loves the weekends as he gets to hang with Daddy a lot. He helps cut the grass by riding in the backpack. All week he'll go into the closet and just sit in his backpack carrier and say "Dada" so when Saturday morning finally rolls around you can imagine how thrilled he is. He also loves to help pull weeds and wash cars. Man, he'll make a great companion one day but for now I am glad he is just our little helper.

In other Ramsey news, we took him to Church in town yesterday for the very first time. We've gone with Cope's parents several times but I've been nervous to take him here with care givers we don't know. It was a very cool nursery with 4 adult women, about 10 other little kids, and toys galore. We put him down in the room he looked at us and said "bye bye". They gave us a pager (very cool!) and Cope and I went to "Big Church" for the next hour. I was nervous. I watched the clock. As soon as it was over I darted to pick up what I thought would be a little boy wondering where the heck we were. Nope. He was unloading a basket full of trucks and he grabbed one to show us. I think he enjoyed himself very much and theladies said he was great and could not believe he had not been in a daycare setting before since he played so well with others. I guess he was on his best behavior? Thank God! I'm glad we tried it and hopefully we can get back next week.

Saturday morning he learned how to climb onto our tall bar stools:
This is usually where I can find him catching some PBS kids. Our coffee table opens up so it doubles as his toy box. He now just climbs on in and plays in it:
Ramsey learned how to do this move just yesterday morning. I was getting his oatmeal and yogurt ready when he came running over and climbed on in??? Cope and I just looked at each other. I mean should be praise him for getting into to high chair when it is time??? Should we scold him for climbing? Man this parenting stuff is hard:
