He still doesn't talk a whole lot but has a lot of partial syllable words that most of the time I know what he's trying to say. He jabbers like crazy and I think I can't wait for when I understand what he's saying. Some of his new words are bobcat (bob), bulldozer (bull), boat (bo), ball (ba),baseball (bay-ba), golf, (kind of sounds like ball maybe?), ice, exercise, medicine, mouse, Jesus (all sound like sss), popcorn is the cutest thing he says! He does the signs for "popcorn popping on the apricot tree" and repeats "pop, pop". Kills me. He makes a really cute noise for train. And he hits his hands on his chest when I ask him what the gorilla does. He does a snake sound and a cow. I know there's a lot more words he is saying but I'm struggling right now. It's late :) I think the talking and communication seems to be the biggest change and development lately. I feel right now that I am going to enjoy his non stop talking. We'll see :) He's got a such a cute little voice, though, so I don't know how I could not!
He has been folding his arms for prayers for awhile, but he still doesn't last more than 10-15 seconds into a prayer...most of the time. He is getting some "stink" in him. Throws fits and throws himself on the ground when things (mostly ridiculous) don't go his way. Seems like he's embracing the toddler expectations perfectly. It's a little more funny to me than it should be at times. And sometimes it's just plain frustrating or annoying. His sweetness and laugh and smile more than compensate for his difficult moments, though!
He's really in love with construction trucks and cars. He's been having fun with blocks and legos more lately. He loves the broom and mop and "cleaning" my floors for me. So nice :) Still loves any type of ball. He's getting pretty good at throwing them, swinging a bat and swinging his golf club. Oh, and he loves guns. Like a lot. I brought a couple nerf guns home from work (a doctor had them for awhile there just to mess with people) and he latched on to those like crazy. He has picked up sticks at the park and made his shooting sound and actions. He has also done that with pancake pieces that resembled a gun and bath toys he hooked together and some other magnet toys he has at church that he rotated to kind of look like a gun. Hope it's just the boy in him and not something I should be concerned about ;) He likes to be sung to and still loves looking at books. He likes to tickle by squeezing my collar bone. Mostly it just hurts but he thinks it's funny so I laugh :) He has figured out he LOVES Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. He requests to watch it at least once a day. I usually concede once a day too. He loves to be outside and likes going for walks and loves the park and sand box. Loves popcorn too :)
