Hutson is beginning to say a string of words together. In the car he said, dada “what are you doing?” More because he hears Boden say it all the time but still impressive. He also blurted out Thank you and please. When we read a book, he’s so smart and knows a lot of the things in the pictures when you ask him. He also blurts on Night night every time he sees a picture of the moon (referencing his Goodnight moon book). He spontaneously will point to trucks, trees and when he sees an airplane in the sky he say “airplane”. He’s adjusted to school really well. Taking naps, eatting well and making a lot of friends. He was for awhile sleeping through the night without the bottle but this last week he’s waking up again at 5:30am.
It’s hard to believe he’s now at 20 months. He can no longer fit into his 12-18month old clothes. He doesn’t sit at the table for very long to eat anymore…getting down from his chair and starts wandering around. His appetite fluctuates. Sometimes it’s hardy other times he can take it or leave it. He still mimicks everything boden does. Loves dancing though it’s more skipping around the house since he hasn’t mastered jumping yet. He can ride his plasma car really well…cruising around the house always with a bottle in mouth. He actually has been giving me the bath sign the last few nights and has pulled up his bed time by nearly and hour.
Boden stil is a poor eater at home but the teachers say he eats well at school. Drop off is getting easier. He still is a bit shy at drop off but doesn’t cry like the first few weeks. He’s getting use to the kids and some of the things he comes home saying we know we didn’t teach him…like that’s Gross! He’s able to better articulate what he wants and how he’s feeling. Like telling dad “that’s not funny!” when Tim was tickling him. So Tim apologized. The teacher’s told me the other day that they asked what the kids wanted to do for the day and Boden sheeplishly raised his hand and in his quiet voice said “dance party.” So they had a dance party.
We have dance parties quite frequently these days…downstairs, on the bed, naked, up stairs…all over the house and it’s always to “sexy and you know it.”
Friday night probably was one of my most fond memories…Hutson was showered and naked and boden just recieved his new big boy blankets and sheets. For about 90 mins the two of them rolled around in the blankets and we tossed and turned them like they were in a washing machine. We all giggled so hard. It was so magical.
Boden too is growing fast and we are needing to move him out of 2-3 year old clothes.
