You’ve finally started talking, hooray! You have six words now: ‘Dada’ for Daddy, ‘wowowow’ for when you’re excited, ‘bop’ for when I do up your poppers or the toaster pops up, ‘ba’ for bang, ‘bum’ for bump and ‘bajammo’ as an explosion noise! Such a boy!! You haven’t quite mastered ‘Mama’ yet, but hopefully it won’t be too much longer.
You babble away in baby language and we have proper little conversations too. I’m not worried about your lack of speech any more.
You love hiding behind doors and jumping out at people making a ‘Raaar’ noise. My little tiger. The cutest misunderstanding you have at the moment is when someone talks about having a lie in and you roar at them as you think they’re talking about a lion!
You love Thomas and Friends and Mr Tumble. You dance along to the theme tunes and always ‘take your finger and touch your nose.’
You’ve been having little tantrums for a while but they’re getting more dramatic now, I didn’t know it was possible to get so angry about a breadstick! You snapped it in half and threw it across the room (although you did eat it later once you’d calmed down).
You constantly amaze me with your understanding and memory, like the time when you showed me how to use the washing machine. You can put a couple of shapes into the shape sorter without help now.
We’ve seen for a while that you know how to do a wee on demand, but you now ask to go on the toilet sometimes. You’ve even done your first poo on the toilet now too, whoop! This has really taken me by surprise as I didn’t think I’d need to think about potty training for another year or so.
One of the things that you find funniest at the moment is the sound of your farts. You do one which makes you chuckle then you spend ages trying to force more out! We really shouldn’t encourage you, but my god it’s funny!
You’ve got your 4th molar through, but I can see another two little teeth coming now. It’s relentless, this teething, although these ones don’t seem to be bothering you as much as previous ones.
We’re looking forward to what the next month will bring!
All my love,
