So I saw Lydia take a couple of steps today!!! And she did it a couple of times! She is still stubborn and hesitant but it was really cool to see her keep her balance and walk. The trick is keeping something in both hands! I didn’t have my camera with me…but here are some […]
Well…a lot of words. It is funny to think during Alden’s 18month checkup, I was worried about him talking. I thought he was a little behind. But now, he says so many things. He repeats at least one word from almost all of my sentences. And he is starting to group them together into sentences […]
Alden typically says some version of “where is he?” with his hands up. But yesterday he started combining more words together. “me go home” “mommy home” “socks on” and “truck is stuck”!
I have joined a flickr group (to help keep me motivated) where we post a photograph every week for 2011. Even though I would like to and try to take a photograph every day, I figured that would be too overwhelming…so I am sticking to the once a week post. Good thing…because I haven’t […]
While I was photographing his feet tonight…another new skill was exhibited. Although he has probably done this before, it is becoming more frequent and more fun for him to:
As you have seen, Alden has long been fascinated with shoes…especially mommy’s shoes. And they are pretty easy to put on. Tonight he found his own shoes and put them on himself. And of course, he would get the feet mixed up! This is a classic thing for kids to do, right! I can’t wait […]
Please ignore my voice in the background…And as I was going to put Alden to bed…I walked in his room and noticed that he got up and rocked on his rocking horse all by himself. He was having so much fun – I decided to grab the video camera!
I could not believe when he did this. First, we did it with quarters – and when I saw how he could do it – I grabbed the camera and a penny. I had to film while holding him!
He is not happy about trying to walk in this video – but it was what we could capture on tape. I think sometimes he gets frustrated that we keep trying to get him to walk. And it is just a couple of steps…but soon he will be all over the place. It really is […]
