Hutson is communicating and expressing himself more and more. He often shakes his head no when he does not want something. He was asked if he wanted to go to bed and he shook his head no!. He is also saying hi and bye more regularly. When we left school this afternoon, he waved bye to his mates and teachers. He will also point to the light switch when you say lights and then want to flip the switch. He also likes to open and close doors and when asked to close the door, he will close it. Hutson also loves to play with the iphone or ipad and his nimble fingers are just perfect for scrolling.
At school, he loves to get his coat and shoes off and head straight for the stairs. He pulls himself up and walks up and down the stairs using the handrail for assistance. The stairs are made for little guys and are three up and three down the other side.
Boden had some tummy trouble when he spent the night at nana and Bappa’s house on Sat night. It started with gas around bed time and then tummy ache. Around 1am, he took a big poo in the potty and then again a few minutes later in his diaper. We think that it was due to an energy bar that he ate earlier in the day but who knows for sure. The same night, he finally made a connection with Tucker the cat. Tucker always scrammed when the boys came over but that night after the tummy problem, Tucker came into bed with Bode and they snuggled and slept together.
Last night, Bode asked me ‘what are you doing daddy?’ I was reading an article on the ipad and he kept asking…what are you doing daddy?…He was very persistant, leaning over my shoulder trying to find out what exactly I was doing and how he could get himself involved.
The last few days picking up Boden at MOA, he’s been playing in the dirt box. He’s digging and building mud castles. I think a sandbox is in Bode’s future. He loves to build, work and create. Now if we could just get him to clean up!!!
Bode’s been wanting/insisting on sleeping in the ‘big bed’ or ‘daddy’s bed’ for the last few weeks. It’s been difficult to get him to his bed and once there, he’ll protest and then after he falls asleep, he’ll come back down stairs and flash his million dollar smile and say ‘I’m awake’…It’s hard to take him back upstairs so usually, we’ll just let him climb in between us and snuggle.
