Too Much Time Has Gone By
RJ, I apologize for not updating this more frequently. Life has been kind of hectic since my last post. You have been in day care 2 days a week for the last 3 months. You would think that would have freed up some more time for me to update this, but it really hasn't. You may want to know what else I am doing with my time, well between real estate and then also I was appointed to Reading City Council. I will tell you more about that when you get older...... So what is new with you. You are becoming a little tazmanian devil, into everything, very fast, and leaving a mess in your wake. You have started doing sign language, you tell us you are hungry, thirsty, you want more, say please, and all done using signs. You are not a man of many words yet, you are starting to say words like all done, upstairs, down, yeah sometimes juice, and tonight you added car to your vocabulary. A funny story from tonight that I will be sure to use against you for years to come, today you wanted a drink, you had water in your cup, you wanted no parts of the water. I took your cup and gave you some juice with the water. You still carried on, still thinking it was water in the cup. I showed you the juice, you smiled and let out the biggest "oh" and drank the cup of juice. What else is new with you? You are quite the little tease at this age. You like to reach out for us, then pull your arms down and run away. You also love to act like you are going to give us something, then pull it away at the last moment. You wear out your grandmothers every visit, and love to explore every nook and cranny of their homes. You are so curious about everything around you. You want to touch everthing. Speaking of touch, we took you to the Please Touch Museum on our anniversary. You had a blast and were worn out after a couple hours. You seemed most interested in the super market and mixing foods. The first thing you picked at the super market was tastykakes krimpets. A son after my own heart. You love sliding boards at this age and had your first ride on a swing over the weekend. You have had your first two sleepovers away from Mommy and Daddy. You first was with Uncle Rob, Aunt Dianna, Robby, and Kelsey. YOur second was with the Kentons, Eileen, Rick, Brittany, Briana, and Kyle. You did so good with both and were a very good boy, (and sleeper) both times. You have been finger feeding for a while now, however you are getting quite good with the fork and spoon (although you seem to always want to fall back on the fingers, even with applesauce). You are getting so independant, you are no longer happy with us feeding you, you want to do it all yourself. It has been an amazing year and a half so far, and there are much more good times to come. You continue to bring so much happiness to everyone you know. You are developing quite the little personality, usually very happy, but also wanting more and more to do things your way. I promise I will try to keep this more up to date. I hope that this will bring as many smile to your face when you are older and get to read this as you have brought to mine.
