17 Month

Posting a day late due to life

new words:
arm
sock
song – he just yells the word when he wants you to sing to him, or turn on the iPod
cracker
juice
fart
fork
food

OK OK… this is one day’s worth of new words and he’s talking so much that I just can’t keep track anymore. He speaks in small sentences and is a good communicator.

plays hide and seek with his penis and towel after a bath
does the actions to “The wheels on the bus”
Plays chase and peek a boo games.
Trick or treated 3 whole houses and ate one piece of candy.
Asks for a cloth to clean up… actual efficacy of cleaning up… not so awesome.
Plays with his boy doll and calls it his baby.
Calls all small children babies and seems a little obsessed with them
Meows at Percy
Has ‘hiding spots’ where he goes for alone time (Tyrone’s bed, the shelf of our kitchen island, behind his crib)
Comes and hugs my legs while I’m standing at the sink
Tickles people
Has spatial understanding (behind, up, down etc)
Can identify known objects in books
Can identify most body parts
