|At Mary Grace's school last month, being a big boy|
I got distracted with father's day and I totally forgot to post your 18 months update. Whoops, sorry!
You're growing and changing so fast, that I want to capture a bit of who you are before you get any bigger. Your language is just starting to emerge. You say "Mama," and "Dada," and "Papa." "RaRa" still means "sister" although I would swear I heard you say "Mary Grace," clear as a bell, the other day. Your babbling is starting to sound a lot like sentences. The word "Go!" is one of your favorites, and sometimes it sounds like you're saying, "When are we going to go?" which is a mouthful for someone so little.
You're such a little snuggle bug. You like to have your back and head rubbed, just like your dad. You like to give kisses and hugs. Sometimes when Dad and I sit on the floor, you'll come up behind one of us and hug us. It's very sweet.
You weaned last month - the earliest of all three of you. It was bittersweet for me. It's exciting that you're growing up, getting bigger and less dependent on me, but it's hard that you're not a baby anymore. You're so big!
Speaking of outside....
Your favorite toy for playing is: Your big truck - you just love to motor up and down the street pushing that thing!
Your favorite toy for snuggling is: your "nah nahs" - cars
Your favorite food is: grapes and blueberries
Your favorite book is: Good Dog Carl or Five Little Sleepyheads
Your favorite activity is: playing with cars
Your favorite place to go is: outside!!!!!
Your best friend is: your "Rah Rahs" (sisters)
Something new that you're doing: babbling in what sounds like sentences
Something you've mastered: walking, running
Something people say about you: "He's so talkative!"
Something that you're saying is: We suspect that you might be fluent in a language that we just don't speak.
Something Dad and I are proud of you for: you play so well with other kids, especially your sisters, and we rarely have any problems with sharing toys or other issues that are common with toddlers (so far!)
Something surprising about you: you LOVE Penny so much. She puts up with a lot of eye poking, tail pulling, and back riding (or trying to, anyway) from you.
Love you so much, Jack Rabbit!
