I’ve got to get better about logging in here. I’ve been barely keeping current with my Friends’ List, but I have been keeping up.
Justin has been a lot of fun lately. Last weekend, he watched his dad plaster a wall and then hours later at a friend’s house, he picked up a toy shovel and used it to “plaster” their wall. He’s decided that he wants to go downstairs forward facing and has been working very hard on that. His determination with physical challenges absolutely amazes me because when he falls, if he’s not hurt, he gets up and tries again until he either gets it right. When he gets hurt, he seeks comfort and then he’s right back at it.
He’s finally started signing. We have little debates where he signs for milk and I sign that he’s all done. He knows a lot of signs, but only uses a select few–milk and his own version of all done (he claps his hands and raises his arms). But if someone signs to him, he knows what it means and will sometimes act accordingly if the mood strikes him.
He still giggles uncontrollably when he’s told “no”. Firm voices are hilarious to him. That’s going to be a bit of a problem–but signing will help with that I think.
I went to the dentist on Tuesday for the first time in over 8 years. I’ll be going again several more times–but it could have been much, much worse.
The transition to macs is still a process, which is why I haven’t been able to blog as much. I’m on my macbook and then I’m just too worn out to type anything else. It’s going to get better, I’m sure.
That’s about it for now, so I’ll leave you with an updated picture of my little man….
who is in his last month in the infant room (gasp!)
