8 things about our Hybug

1. He loves music. When we have Family Home Evening he likes to stand on something (anything) and lead us in singing. He loves to sing and dance. The other day we had the primary CD playing and I heard him singing along to "I am a Child of God." We started a Music Together class at the Music School that he really enjoys. He can’t wait until it’s time to go to “Class.”

2. Binky and Blankey. Hyrum has always been very attached to his binky. We have tried numerous ways of weaning him from it. We finally decided that we would buy him a Mickey stuffed animal, that we keep on a shelf by his bed. He has to give Mickey his binky when he wakes up, and Mickey keeps it for him until bedtime. When we go to Disneyland we will see Mickey for real and give him our binky for good. Hyrum usually does okay, but isn’t always happy about leaving his binky with Mickey. I’m afraid that when he does see Mickey he will give him a kick in the shins for stealing his bink!
Hyrum has a couple blue blankets that are his. I have to be sneaky to keep them clean. He loses it if he sees any of his blankets in the laundry basket or washer.

3. The Terrible Twos. He turned two and turned a little bit terrible. Tantrums are common. He likes to scream at my face, which I really enjoy! The more I ignore him the louder and higher he gets. Last Sunday he slapped Ammon across the face….the lovely child!
If you ask him what is in his hair, he says, “Bopper Hair.” Referring to the time he spread diaper ointment all over himself.
If you ask him what is in his nose, he says, “Popcorn Nose.” Referring to the time he stuck three popcorn kernels up his nose.
He was playing in his room recently and came out holding his hands out saying, “poop, poop.” He had stuck his fingers in his diaper, which was obviously poopy.

4. “OUTSIDE!” Hyrum LOVES to be outside. I don’t blame him! He loves to go on “balks,” and play at the park. He’s also happy just playing with the gravel in the driveway. I have to keep the door locked or he will let himself out.

(Yes, socks on the hands--and that is the window scraper--he was using it to rake the grass)
5. I think Hyrum’s absolute favorite thing in the world is riding Big Daddy’s motorcycle. He will do anything for a “moto cycle” ride, but all he has to do is bring Big Daddy the keys and say please.

6. “Otch a Show” He loves to watch movies. He and Ammon are always watching shows together. I don’t mind too much because he eats his food a lot better if he’s watching a show.

7. Hyrum is smart. We got a Leap Frog letter toy from my sister and we bought the leapfrog “Letter Factory” movie. (Which we thought was crazy boring, but Hyrum loves it) All of a sudden he can identify at least half his letters! He also knows his colors and shapes and some numbers.
When we took him in for his two year checkup the doctor asked us if he could button a large button. We didn’t really know because we don’t have many large buttons around the house. We thought maybe she should have asked if he could change the DVD and start it…(or if he could start the dish washer, or washing machine). He is a very curious little boy.

8. I could say so much more! He is always smiling. On his blessing day (about 2 months old) he was smiling so much that my brother said,
“You know Hryum, not everything’s a joke!”
I’ll conclude with this: I’ll always love to hear Hyrum’s sweet little voice in prayer. He is an amazing kid, and when I hear him pray I feel a glimpse of the love that Heavenly Father has for him. Priceless.
We tag Morgan and Parker!

The letter factory is the same movie we have and it's great! Its also great to hear more about Hyrum when we are so far away and don't get to see him very often.

I loved reading about Hyrum and got a kick out of the cute snippets of his daily life. I really had fun getting to know him better during the month that Isaiah and I visited. Hyrum and Audrey are both very cute and adorable kids and I miss seeing them on a regular basis.
