It's Wednesday Right?

I am slammed at work right now. Part of it is due to only working one day last week and I am trying to get things done before leaving for Thanksgiving next week. Nothing refreshes me like cuddle time on the couch with Keegan. He likes to curl up under "mommy's blanket" and draw on his magnetic doodle pad. I'm not an artist but last night he correctly identified a moose I drew. And he knows the difference between a sailboat and "bumpa's" (my dad) motor boat.
Other Keegan milestones:
First sentence on Monday, "The moon is in the sky."
Calling it "mommy's house" and "daddy's house."
Using pronouns, "I sit" and "I stuck."
Singing the ABC song.
Helping to get himself dressed and undressed.
Added in two new books to the bedtime rotation, "Goodnight Moon" and "Everybody Poops." Two subjects he is interested in lately.
Saying Erika's name, "Aunt Ek ka ka."
Asking for foods and beverages by their proper name without me having to list everything until he indicates a preference.
Calling out the names of people in photographs.
Voluntarily wearing a hat.
Starting to name colors.
Vocabulary explosion.
