Boy, he looks like a kid and not a baby at all anymore, doesn't he?
I suppose it is time for an update from the Jack chronicles...He continues to be a talking maniac. He has really mastered two word phrases (including the ever popular "get down", which he is currently saying roughly 2 million times a day.) He also says things like " want some", "lay down", "diaper on", "nap time", "bunny", "music", and "juice". Just yesterday he started calling for Dad all the time, no matter where Dad is, "Daddddddddddddddddeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyy!"
He is going through his "clingy" phase (about time perhaps?). He wants to be on my lap or right next to me 24 hours a day.
Sleeping is still a bit challenging, some days he isn't napping at all, other days he is only napping 20 minutes. This makes nighttime tough.
We are trying to have another go at going without the Zantac. I am not sure how well that is going to work though. :-/.
He wants to be DOWN all the time, which means he is not content to ride in the backpack, the stroller or the cart. This is combined with not holding hands at all ever for any reason, so going out is a bit of a challenge at the moment.
Jack is also becoming ever more attached to his blanket. These days we are hardly without "blankie" for even a moment. We eat with it, go outside with it, sleep with it. (I am surprised he doesn't want to bathe with it!) I read in a book that blankets give toddlers courage, that explains the rest of his attitude, an overdose on courage, LOL!
We are in the midst of redoing his playroom to give him even more space. I want to be able to set up an art table, since he is now really enjoying coloring and painting (i.e. making a mess!)
Photos of the new playroom to come as soon as I choose a paint color!
