Some of Tanner's FAV's

So lately Tanner has had a lot of favorite things.  His obsessions have been changing from day to day, and boy is he ever stubborn about them!  That's right, I have a full blown 2 year old on my hands.  Temper tantrums, anger, stubbornness, shouting, screaming, hitting.... you name it... he's done it at one point or another.  :)

June 2010, we were able to go to Disneyland CA.  Some of my old coworkers pitched in and gave Tanner mickey ears before we went.  Up until a few weeks ago, Tanner refused to wear them, and now he doesn't hardly take them off!  

He also loves to play with shoes!

Since he isn't walking yet, he wears them on his hands and crawls around with them on. 

He is such a cute boy in his ears and mommy's shoes!

Oh, don't forget giving his stuffed mickey a ride on the train, another obsession!

The last Saturday of January we went to the Phoenix Zoo with all of Ray's siblings families.  The only animal Tanner REALLY likes is a giraffe. Since Tanner is still under 3 almost all the "extras" are free for him.  He "wanted" to feed the giraffe until we were close.  And then he clung to me for dear life!

It was still fun to see his reaction and everyone else's as I "tortured" my child.  I'm sure the zoo workers thought I was being a mean mom!

Isn't it funny how kids are so interested in things until they get up close and person with them. It's like Santa all over again! LOL! Thankfully they outgrown it in a few year, in the meantime, it's kind of funny. :)

i love all the giraffe pictures! so funny. i love the last one where i can see your face as your giggling at his reaction. :) matix loved feeding the giraffes when we went, but hawken was terrified. they are so big compared to kids, no wonder why they get scared. :)
