“I’ll close this too,” Jacob says as he closes a door. He can open doors now so that means he can go outside whenever he wants now. He got bored inside this morning and said, ‘outside.’ I love how he had thought up an idea of what to do.
He uses mainly, ‘nope’ and ‘yup’ as his responses to yes or no questions.
He is liking to not sit at his highchair. We compromised this morning and pulled the trayless highchair up to the table.
“Mommy, dump it in there.” Jacob says about the contents of his little potty while pointing to the big potty.
He uses the phrase ‘in there’ quite a bit. I.e. 'Sticky in there.'
He likes to talk about things that have happened before. Like Sarah pulling the towel bar off the wall. “Sarah, ouchie, there,” while pointing to the remains of the towel bar. She didn’t get an ouchie. She had been holding on to the towel bar and jumping while I was in another room. The towel bar and wall got an ouchie.
He’ll often say, ‘thank you’ and hand over whatever he isn’t supposed to have (like a pen).
When he’s done eating he passes his plate to me and says ‘thank you.’
He can also say, “Thank you, meal.” (thank you for the meal).
He cannot say ukulele though. He has called it a piano and song.
Here we are enjoying (?) a canoe time with our family on the May long weekend! We found the lifejacket secondhand and have neither seen the movie Cars or endorse it (I don't really like things with ads on them, but it is a great little life jacket for him :) Thanks Mom K.
