Well this is late, but I wanted to post some things Jack is saying and doing now....
Words: Ka chow (like Lightning McQueen in his favorite movie)
kinda says lawnmower
shew (when he smells something)
I'm sure there are more I'm forgetting because he tries new ones every day! I just can't believe how fast he is growing and maturing these days.
Things he is doing:
showing his muscles
giving big bear hugs and kisses while saying mmmmmmmmmm
having imaginary conversations on his power ranger phone,lol he says "Hi, hahaha, bybye!"
likes to play chase
I am so facinated by how quick he is picking up on things right now. It is getting so much easier to communicate because he is actually starting to understand most of what I tell him and he is getting better at telling me what he wants.
We have had a few good temper tantrums, but those are also gettng easier to manage. Pretty frustrating at first though, I did have a couple of breakdowns with him, lol. The worst one he ever had I just had to leave where I was and when I got in the car I just burst into tears. Then of course he quits crying and says ma ma? like he couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. I looked back and said, "that is how I feel when you are crying", lol. Real mature conversation while I was squalling! That was the worst one though, it has definetly been better since then.
Every day is a learning experience and an adventure! I am enjoying every second of every new phase because I just can't believe how fast the time is passing!
