Then, the series against the Hornets was really unusual. We knew they could pull it off in game 7, but there was a little doubt lurking in the air considering the Spurs hadn't played well at all in New Orleans. It sure was fun to watch the game last night, even though Reggie Miller was making unintelligent and useless comments the whole time. We ordered Tyson some more Spurs gear since he's outgrown his jersey from last year. I'm sure some pics will make it up here once we get them in the mail :)
Now, on to LA to face the Lakers... we'll be watching!! Repeat?!?!?
Recently I have been turning on the laptop at the kitchen table to look up things (restaurant phone numbers, Spurs game times, etc). Of course he comes running when he hears it coming on. His software is on the desktop computer, so when I decide to give in and let him type on the laptop, I open Microsoft Word and let him loose. I just use the mouse to close things when he presses the right key combinations.
Well... the other day he was "typing" and the Office Assistant popped up. You know, that little paper clip looking thing that everyone thinks is so annoying. I found a pic of it, hopefully I won't get in trouble for using it...I think I discovered Microsoft's plan. 17 month olds apparently love that little thing. Tyson shrieks when he sees it and now he tries to talk to it. He points at it, asking me to make it move or make noise. He gets so excited. I think it's their plan to get kids involved with their products early on. (That was the first surprise... someone actually likes that thing)
Then, I was trying to catch him on video shaking his head no, so we could look back on it later and remember how cute it is (heh heh). For the past week or so, when ANYONE asks him if they can have a kiss, he shakes his head no. If you act like you're sad he will sometimes give in. Well, I asked him for a kiss and got a surprise.... watch and see! (it's near the end of the video)
On Friday morning, Tyson's school did a "Moms and Muffins" breakfast. They had the cafeteria decorated and served muffins and drinks. Tyson didn't eat a whole lot because he was so excited to be sitting in a big boy chair. He kept patting it and laughing. We were also sitting across from one of his classmates so they kept "talking" to each other. He ate more breakfast when he got to his classroom. It was a cute breakfast. They also gave us some crafts they had the kids make earlier in the week.
Another new thing he does now is sit on the curb when he's playing outside. If there is a toy or a newspaper closeby, he will grab it, then go sit on the curb and ask you to come sit next to him. It's pretty funny for us to watch. Then he gets up, moves a few feet down and sits down again. Who knows where he got this from! Here he is sitting with Papa on the curb by their house.
Here are some of the things he does. We must ask him to do them too often because he starts doing another one before we even ask him :)
