"Learn to Walk" was the theme of this month. He had randomly stood on his own a couple times so we took that as his cue to start walking, probably a little more seriously than he'd have liked! We worked and worked and worked. We even had friends and family working with him. So he started the month taking 5 steps from Jamie to me and eventually progressed to walking across a room. When I picked him up from the BSF nursery one day the lady told me he stood up on his own, walked across the room, then realized what he was doing, stopped, looked around and started whining for someone to help him. He has never done that for us. Now at the end of the month he will walk away from us towards something he wants, like a toy or the couch, and he'll let go of whatever he is holding onto and walk towards us, even without our prompting or knowledge. But walking is not his main source of transportation yet.
He is also working on his talking. He now says "uh-oh", "hot", and "more". These are the only words that he uses that we know he understands the context he is using them in. He recognizes phrases, such as "get your ball" he will go get his ball. But even though we can't understand what he is saying all the time, he is ALWAYS talking.
One day when I picked him up from the BSF nursery the ladies were commenting on how serious he is. They said they've maybe gotten 4 smiles out of him. They think he'll grow up to be serious and have a dry sense of humor. His daddy says he must be like his momma.
he had a hard time with the texture of spaghetti, but finally likes it now
practicing to ride with Papa Gregor!
but this will have to do for now
