The J-man has a new and exciting talent – the ability to say a whole phrase. That phrase? “My name is ‘J-man’!”
It goes like this:
[We assume you know that neither ‘na-na’ nor ‘J-Man’ is his name, and in both instances he and Mary got his name right. 🙂 ]
He’s getting so big, and it seems like it’s all of a sudden. We had to switch to Good Nites instead of the Huggies Overnights because he outgrew the size 5s in what seemed like a week. He’s wearing “big boy shoes” every day now, and thankfully the Preschoolians came in, because the other shoes were getting harder and harder to put on. He’s VERY clear about what food/drink he wants now, and will go over and BANG on the picture if he thinks you are ignoring him. Tonight was the best stair-climbing he’s ever done, with very little leaning on me.
In terms of communication, it seems like a lightbulb went on over his head. Now he gets that if he makes the sound, he gets what he’s asking for. He’s so proud of himself – now he runs around and bangs on his belly and yells.
My little boy is growing up, right before my eyes.
