When at home, he walks around endlessly always with something in each hand. He loves to open and close the cabinet doors and drawers as he feels so proud he's helping.
I'm shocked at his vocabulary...neither of the twins had the amount of words or punctuation he does. I do think having older siblings around talking non stop helps but more than anything I just think he's one smart cookie. I feel he understands so much of what I'm telling him. The only challenge we're having is him giving up the bottle... with the twins it was right at 12 months they were on to sippy cups but not Jonas...he LOVES his bottle. The pediatrician said to offer him a bottle with water and a sippy cup with milk and he should take the cup with the milk. Not Jonas, he takes the bottle every time. I think it's just comfort for him...he looks at me throughout the day with his puppy dog eyes saying "BABA?" It's hard not giving it to him but it never fails if I do he doesn't end up eating his food. I know he won't be going to Kindergarten with a bottle so I'm not that worried. If you have any suggestions that would be great!
Parker going in for a tickle
Handsome big boy with still only two bottom teeth .. he's been teething forever .. hence the evidence of drool on his shirt .. not sure when those teeth are going to come in .. I'm sure it will happen all at once... ouch
Swinging hits Jonas' tickle bone.. he thinks it's so funny
He loves to chase after you while I'm saying come and get me .... I get him belly laughing so hard he falls over.
Sidenote: I caught Brooke on the tire swing she use to be so scared of it. You would put her on it within one push she was shaking to get off. Today I look up while pushing Jonas in the swing and she's standing up swinging so hard.. I couldn't believe it. She said look mama I'm not scared anymore. Poor girl has a huge bruise on her forehead from tripping running on a sidewalk last week..just in case you were wondering.
I just can't believe our sweet baby boy is a true toddler running around .. it's hard to remember babyhood as it just went so fast!
Here's a video we took the other night showing off some of his words but he was a little tired but even when he's tired he's cute:)
