|After finding a stash of swim diapers under his crib, he repeatedly pulls them out and puts them on his head and proudly exclaims, "hat!"|
|Hard. Core. Playing.|
|A tractor ride from one of our neighbors. Parker loves him!|
|It's still too big for him....hopefully it fits next winter!|
|Dashing out the door with daddy; his favorite thing to do.|
|Another make-shift hat!|
|Discovering curly fries....and actually liking them! (The child does NOT like potatoes.)|
|Taking his new booster seat for a test drive.|
|Sheer delight in terrifying our dog, Shady, whom Parker refers to as, "Bella!"|
On a more positive note, he is continuing to say new words, and has even begun saying two words together! Mainly when he is telling someone bye-bye. As in, "bye-bye daddy" or "bye-bye Bella". Other words that I can think of that he has learned are: bear (beh), soup (sou), and.....I know there are probably a ton more but my mind is drawing a blank. One thing that I've noticed for awhile now that I've never wrote about is that he pronounces all of his "c's" as a "d". So, a cat is a dat, and a car is a dar.
I'm still teaching him animals and what sounds they make. He now knows that a frog says "ribbit". I have a book for him that is an alphabet book with animals. If we flip through the book and ask him to point to a specific animal, he knows the whole book! Proud parent moment the day we realized that!
He has really got into talking on the phone. Now if he actually talks to a real person on the phone he will say hello (lo) and bye-bye. He will often use an every day object and pretend it's a phone. It's so cute!
He's learning how to jump!
We love him dearly and he is such a joy to be around!
I am 22 months old! I weigh 26.6 pounds!
|He's very independent and has recently decided he doesn't like "help" when he takes drinks. I'm always nervous he's going to dump it in his lap!|
