Bobby 2 years 6 monthsPosted: December 21, 2010
Lately, Bobby has taken to telling stories. Sometimes they are real sometimes they are imaginary, sometimes a mix of both. Sometimes they are about how a giant inflatable Santa drives babies to the hospital when they are ready to be born. Usually it’s making up little scenarios for his toys or food or whatever he’s holding at the time.

Bobby has become much more self-sufficient lately. He gets his own snacks from the counter (fruits) or cupboard (crackers etc), brushes his own teeth, put on his own boots etc. It very nice to see that kind of progression. He also has become more adept at negotiating for what he wants using "not yet" or "just for a minute" or "I need… something… a hug?". He knows the ropes when he’s in trouble "I will go in time out until I’m ready to say sorry. Then, I will say sorry and it’s time for a bath"

There was a bit of a biting incident going on at his daycare for awhile. Bobby was being bitten by another boy there. It seems like I SHOULD have been really upset about it by the way everyone else was reacting to it (the other kids parents, etc) but I was honestly surprised that this kind of thing doesn’t happen more often. He got bit twice and that’s it. It’s not like he’s traumatized although I’m sure it hurt at the time. He refers to the boy that did it as his ‘good friend’. I guess he didn’t take it personally.

Bobby has been super into babies lately. I’m going with it so that he welcomes Molly easily. He gives her hugs and kisses and talks to her through my belly button. He is fascinated when he sees little babies on TV or in real life. He wants to be held like a baby at least once a day. We indulge him for a few minutes and then encourage him to grow back into Big Boy Bobby.
This morphs into other kinds of pretend play. Based on a show he watched, he now pretends that he’s the World’s Greatest Detective and he goes around declaring "A-ha!" and "Mysterious… Very mysterious…"
