You are 30 months old today.
Your language is starting to take a turn for the better this month. Here are some new words and phrases that are making regular rounds in our house now:
I Need It!
Notice anything? Like perhaps the grabby tenor of the words? It’s all about possession this month. The last proclamation was uttered yesterday when your friend Lina snuggled up to me on the couch. You came barreling over, all spit and fire, pointed accusingly at the interloper and proclaimed, My Mama!
Warmed my heart, yes it did!
We have worked on the simple word, Bunny, for what seems like forever and this week you finally got it! You’ve gone from saying Baba to Buh…NEE!
Singing has entered your life and I must say, you sing with gusto. What you lack in actual understandable words you make up for with deafening vigor. Your repertoire includes the ABC song, Here we go ‘round the mulberry bush and Baa Baa Black Sheep.
We had some fun excursions this month, all of which you delighted in. We had a really beautiful day for the Kids and Kites Festival.
You have matured a lot in the past month. Just this week I was able to leave you in the ballet classroom with the teacher and students (and Kate of course!) and you had a grand time. I was gone for 45 minutes and your attention didn't waver in class. You are more confident with your friends in playgroup, initiating games or sharing toys and snacks.
It's quite lovely to see you blossom as spring turns to summer, blooming right along with all the summer flowers.
