Our week in three words:
The baby turned 20 months old this week. I really should stop calling him a baby, because he’s really not at this point. I have no idea where the last 20 months have gone. It’s been a complete flash!
Right now he is completely obsessed with cars, trucks, and trains. All day everyday he is pushing along a vehicle of some sort saying, “Choo Choo… bye byes.” And he acts like a kid in a candy store when we’re driving on the interstate, screaming “Tuck, Tuck!!” at every semi that passes us. He is truly a boy’s boy.
Speaking of being a boy’s boy, he has started being rough with the other babies in the nursery at preschool. L There is not a toddler room at our school (and oh how I wish there was), so B is still in this nursery this school year with little ones. He’s the oldest by 5 months and has started scratching the other kids and pulling their hair. <sigh> He gets a firm “No” and a time-out each time, so hopefully he will stop soon.
Also this week, my big man is interested in the potty. How awesome would it be if this interest would last? He tells me every time he has a dirty diaper and asked to sit on the potty twice yesterday. Is this too much information to share about him? I don’t think so, I’m thrilled!
He’s been slow to start talking, but I’m starting to understand him more and more each day. I don’t know if anyone else can, but I’m starting to understand what he’s saying. His newest word is “Scooby dooby doo.” You can’t tell he has an older brother or anything, can you?
Baby Blue (and my husband calls him Blue for his gorgeous blue eyes) is such a sweet boy (when he’s not scratching and pulling hair). He loves to cuddle and give out hugs and kisses. He loves to greet any and everyone with a “HI!!” in the brightest, cheeriest voice ever. He has been a true blessing to us this past 20 months…. I still can’t believe he’s almost two!!!
