Monkey See, Monkey Do

I noticed that Everett’s favorite things to do are the things he sees me doing. He loves to sweep, he LOVES to load and unload the dishwasher (though I try to keep it locked shut), he loves to wash things, he loves to sort the laundry, he loves to do his makeup and brush his hair! haha

I take my makeup away and wipe his face and the second I turn back to doing my own makeup he’s back into it. He has a further reach than I realized!

He also loves pretending to talk on the phone. He has a toy phone that he walks around with up to his ear like this as well. (And if he hears my phone ring or my text message alert go off he isn’t happy until I pick up my phone and look at it!)

Another thing Everett likes is trains. And cars. Any vehicles. He loves to carry these ones that make noise. If you push a button they drive on their own. He LOVES these.

Just yesterday the batteries ran out on this train and he had the best ten minutes of his life as we sat down together with the screwdriver and batteries and replaced them.

I was trying to cook and Everett was whining since I wouldn’t carry him while I did that. I had a moment of brilliance and started to wipe my fridge with a baby wipe. He immediately came over and held his hand out for one and he and Ember (she noticed and wanted to join, too) wiped all over the fridge while I finished cooking.

Later that night Allan gave Everett a piggy back ride 🙂

One thought on “Monkey See, Monkey Do

  • I will never get over how similar our youngest boys are. If anything beeps or rings (timers, phones, door bells, etc.), he starts yelling at the top of his lungs and runs around frantically until we acknowledge the alarming sound! HAHA I just love our boys! It's so fun to see what's happening with Everett!
