W Lately

Aside from the poor sleep, W has been lots of fun and I can't believe how much he's learned and grown in a short time.

He's talking up a storm.  He loves to make comparisons.  For instance, he'll have apple juice and say, "Not orange juice."  Or he'll see our neighbor's dog outside and say, "Not Addie."  This goes on all day.

Some other favorites lately:

W:  Mommy, S eat bagels?
Me:  No, only big boys eat bagels.
W:  S no teeth.

W:  (points to himself) Not Baby S.
Me:  You're not baby S?  Who are you?
W:  Big Boy W!

W;  Baby S sleeping?
Me:  No, he's not sleeping.
W:  S eyes open!

W's absolute favorite thing to do is play outside.  Thankfully we've finally gotten some spring like weather around these parts.  I took him out the other day and W repeatedly said red stroller.  I asked if he wanted to go for a walk and he replied walk.  The two of us went for a really long walk and W started to whine and pout when I finally turned around to head home.  I'll gladly walk with you any time, kiddo!

I think I've mentioned it before, but W knows all his colors and loves to use them when identifying objects.  He knows red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, white, brown, black, and pink.

He sings songs lately.  Favorites of his are Baby Beluga, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and ABCs.

W can do 12 piece jigsaw puzzles.

He has started to count and can count to 5 on occasion, though this is a work in progress.

He can identify most letters of the alphabet.

W continues to be a wonderful big brother.  Always concerned about S and bringing him various toys, pacifiers, etc.

I'm so looking forward to the summer with these two.  S will interact more and W will be able to spend lots of time outside. :)
