Aside from Xander and I being sick the last half of his twentieth month, this month has really been so. much. fun! Here’s his little word picture for the month:
There were a lot of firsts this month! First trick-or-treating, first parade (so adorable to watch his excitement), first pee pee on the potty, and he even had his first unassisted swim strokes (omg super proud mama moment!) Ohh and he also has been getting more comfortable at music class and marched in the circle by himself (verse having me hold him) and danced in the circle during his turn (verse having me dance inside the circle with him too)! So many firsts and getting more independent.
Communication has been advancing this month and it’s thrilled to see! I can’t believe I didn’t put the number of signs/words on his word picture this month but here are the details:
- 7 new signs: aunt, uncle, wind, motorcycle, pretty, light, and thirsty.
- 10 new words: whoa, rice, bagel, bum, hello (most adorable thing ever), bye bye, beep beep, sit, shoes, and eggs.
He talks and babbles so much more than ever before and when he does, he’s not quiet about it! Love the personality that is shining through!
We also think he may be understanding more of what is going on with the new baby coming. He will point to and kiss the baby – but only if he’s in the mood to – not always on cue was asked. He’s also been having some hard-core mommy centric moments over the last week, that make us think he may know something new is about to happen!
Month 20 has been super fun and I’m sure month 21 will only have more added excitement!
You’re such an awesome baby (sniff sniff, I mean toddler), Xander! Love – Mama and Dada.
