20 Months

  • After eating, he passes over every item in front of him to be put away and says’ Thank You!’ with each one.
  • Is REALLY into wiping up spills (that he purposefully made to be able to clean them up)
  • Is mesmerized by Sesame Street, especially Elmo. Why is Elmo like crack to toddlers? (a few days later – I’ve had to stop allowing him to watch it. It’s the only show he’s watched but it has caused such a fucking frenzy and a number of meltdowns. Not to mention that he spends an hour standing in front of the tv instead of running around and playing. It will ba a hard couple of days, but it’s for the best)
  • Knows the names of all his family members (I’m teenana)
  • I got my first unsolicited “I love you”
  • Counts to 10 all by himself – and today he made it to 13!!!
  • Climbs up on the couch and sits there like a real boy
  • Has Olympic FEVER! So far his favorite events are moguls, curling, ski jump, ski cross and ice dancing (he’s the only one here who likes the ice dancing – we indulge him so.)
  • Pretends to be all kinds of things but usually a lion or a dinosaur.
  • When he’s laughing he pauses to say “Bobby’s laughing about!”
  • When something doesn’t go his way he starts yelling and shoves everything off his playtable onto the floor.  Then two seconds later he triumphantly declares "I did iiiiiiiit!"
  • Has become my official toilet paper dispenser and toilet flusher (hey if he won’t leave the room he might as well be useful!)
  • He thinks he can jump

    Can I just say that you make me actually realize it is possible to be normal and sane and the mother of a toddler? Also, you are my fiance’s hero since your posts make kids an alright thing for me to have.
