The Russ-Buster

"Oh, we got Trouble. Right here is Russell City." Well, you get the idea, right :)

As you can see, Russ gets into EVERYTHING! He is a total daredevil, and is not afraid of too much. I guess this hasn't changed too much in the past 6 months, but the intensity of things continues to amaze me!

Apart from making mommy's hair go grey, he is a great kid. He loves to play outside, and loves to help out with the chores inside and out. Mowing the lawn, vacuuming the floor, and sweeping the floor are some of his favorites. Russ' vocabulary has exploded, and he is able to tell us what he wants. However, he really would prefer to just do it himself (most days he'll open the fridge, move a chair over, and get the turkey in about 10 seconds).

Russ is also fast -- the Lipsey clan usually takes an evening walk after dinner. We will stop at one of the neighborhood parks, and once you let Russ out of the stroller he is off! Russ also continues to like to read books, watch Mickey and Sesame Street, and just general kid stuff.

I have been impressed with the things he mimics, compared to Meredith. He loves to tell us that "Russ starts with R" and "I was the line leader today at school," just like big sister will tell us about her day.

Oh, and the boy loves his vanilla ice cream -- but only with sprinkles:)

I find that funny...but I do not deal with it on a daily basis! Hang in there!

Such a fitting picture! I cannot believe how grown up he looks...even in the washing machine!
