Dino Buddy

I went to go get Calvin up from a nap the other day and found him sleeping on top of his dino stuffed animal that Tutu made me when I was little. He had pulled it down from his dresser and was sleeping peacefully with it as his body pillow. It was so precious. When he woke up, the dino was giving him kisses as thanks and Calvin thought it was hilarious. That dinosaur is his new friend. He loves him! He also loves giving kisses lately!

Oh My Gosh, So Good

Tyler and I were able to go see Pioneer Theatre Company's opening night production of Our Town last night. It has really been a dry spell for us as far as seeing good theatre goes, and last night was so refreshing. It made me remember why I chose to study theatre. The show was so moving and so good. We loved it. Amazing.

Anyway, we got to go see it because we are a part of Utah Theater Bloggers Association and were in charge of writing UTBA's review on the show. You can read it here.

The One With Videos

We've been having so much fun each day. Problem is, I am too busy living it instead of taking pictures or filming it. I sometimes forget that there are others who don't get to see this cutie every day. Man, I feel sorry for you. It sure is fun. Here are some recent pictures/videos for your viewing pleasure!

You have to know that we have been unable to get any of Calvin's really great "tricks" on video. Whenever we get out the camera, he stops what he is doing and bolts toward it. It's actually a little frustrating because every clip ends up being the same. The only time I can get anything fun is if I hide and don't say a word and then just video tape him for 5 minutes, hoping he'll do something funny in it. So, here are a lot of videos, but most of them are us filming him until he finds the camera. I thought you might want to take a look, though.

For about two weeks, the only way he would vocalize was by making these Tony-from-the Shining-esque growls. "Danny's not here, Mrs. Torrance..." Funny. And a little freaky.

He can wave "bye-bye." Here's a short glimpse...

He is really good at "Pat the Bunny." He does all the actions on each page! This is another short glimpse until he sees us...

Another try at "Pat the Bunny."

He is a good dancer. In these ones, I am trying to capture it. You get a little at the end of this one and a little more at the end of the one below.

Well, there you go! I will try to be better about taking pictures and telling stories. Any suggestions about how to get good stuff on video without him knowing?

We are doing well. Calvin is almost walking. We almost have the whole script written for the play I'm working on, and Tyler has a second interview with Microsoft next week in Washington. Wish him luck!
