I am generally quick to post about things not going right, but not so good when there’s something good to share, so here’s a few things I am very proud of BOTH my boys for achieving lately:
Is no longer wearing ANY nappies. YEP, not even a night-time nappy!! When the weather hit 44c recently and not much cooler at nights, I just decided it was too hot for nappies AND can’t believe that we’ve had not one single accident since. Hoorah!!!
Is taking 6-7 almost controlled steps regularly and even though he’s still a long, long way from being an independently walking boy, he tries to maneouvre his way around by walking – holding on to things (walls, furniture, a hand, his walker, a trolley, toy lawnmower, his brother’s head etc) instead of immediately opting for crawling.
Is talking all the time. His speech still needs an awful lot of work, but he’s developing a definite spoken vocabulary and a will to speak with a wide range of people. On the down side, he’s learnt the art of complaining – apparently his kinder bag is ‘very very very heavy’, his dinner last night was ‘very very very yukky’ and his little brother was ‘very very very very mean’ to him…. not that I am complaining about his complaining…
And my lovely little Bean:
Is FINALLY saying a few words. Still not linking any two words together, but he’s got a growing vocabulary in both English AND Indonesian letting us know what he wants which is welcome relief from his previous strategy of just screaming while I thrust all possible choices in front him and just MAYBE guessed right every now and then .
Is a dancing star. He knows all the movies to most of the Wiggles songs and when we went to see live music in our local park on Sunday evening got claps and cheers as he boogied his way up the front to some funky jazz beats. I really must record some of his moves and post them. He’s very groovy .
Is going to turn 2 next month. I don’t know where that time has gone, but I can’t wait to celebrate turning 2 with him. He doesn’t always get the fairest deal and I am looking forward to us having a very very special day just for him.
