What Blake has been up to lately...

Blake has been up to some adventures lately. The other day I made some cookies (ok I didn't make them, they were already made I just stuck them in the oven) and I put them on the rack to cool. Blake then sidled up to our counter with his trusty step stool that goes everywhere with him and he promptly ate one bite out of each cookie, no more no less. I thought it was quite funny, he is our little taste tester. Usually Blake won't even eat a cookie, so I was actually astonished he had done this. 
Also, the other night Blake was really quiet upstairs. Usually this doesn't mean too much as he has a playroom up there and will often go up there and play by himself. This time was an exception. I went upstairs to change and on the wall of the stairs I see some purple crayon markings. As I continued up the stairs and onto the landing there were walls covered in purple marks. I just started laughing at what Blake had done, what else can you do? Blake had found one of his crayons for the bathtub and promptly wrote on every surface he could. I actually caught him in the act and scared him which made him cry. It was actually quite comical. What was not funny was cleaning up the mess. Joe and I got off as much as we could and now we will have to paint over what was not cleaned up. By the way, magic eraser does not work. Here is video of Blake's artistic abilities. (interestingly enough, Blake HATES to color. When we go into nursery to pick him up his project is always the only one not colored at all. Go figure)

Naughty naughty boy!! The cookie thing is absolutely hilarious, the wall thing, not so much. Seriously drew on everything he could!

oh no, he got your walls good. He sounded so proud of himself too. The cookie thing is so funny.

Jessalyn and her cousin did that once, we made THEM clean it and it hasn't happened since, and she didn't like to clean it either (of course we had to follow up with a cleaning). Funny cookies!

Looks like we have a little cookie monster/artist on our hands.He just wanted to make sure ALL those cookies were for him. Too cute! Scribbling on wall brings back memories. I think every kid does it at least once. Give him a big hug from grandma.

I love the video! It looks like you have an artist in the house. I can't tell you how many times I've had to explain the "we only color on paper" rule to Tiago.
