Tomma Tells It Like He Wants It!

Most afternoons this summer, after Tommy wakes up from his nap, we head outside for some pre-dinner outside fun. Sometimes I put Tommy in the stroller with a snack and, with Lucy on her bike, we make a round or two around the block.
Today, I was just going to let Tommy run around in the front yard with toys. The kid slept 3 hours this afternoon (after skipping the a.m. nap). Wowza!
As we headed to the garage, Tommy went to the car trunk and was pointing at it (where I keep the stroller). I asked, "Don't you want to play with toys?" and he gave me the sign for "eat."
"O.k. kid, we'll stroller around a bit with a snack!"
I was laughing inside....this was really the first time he told me what HE wanted, and it was not what I had planned at all. I mean, he has shown me what he wants by pointing and pushing things away - but this was a real milestone (or so I thought, anyway)!
He has been really saying a lot obsessions are "Dog" (or anything that looks remotely like one) and "Dora."
Oh my Tomma Shalomma! (side note: I have noticed the neighborhood kids are calling him "Tomma"...ha it...)

Tomma! I love it. Don't those milestones really make you feel all fuzzy inside? So proud. :)

ps. I'm painfully jealous of the three hour nap! I had one day with a three hour nap. And not even close since. haha!
