that appeal only to this mama's heart, but nonetheless...here they are...
A few nights ago as I attempted to cook dinner, I couldn't help but notice that Dylan was not a happy camper. Rather than busying himself with the magnetic letters and "fridge DJ" like he usually does, he sat on the kitchen floor and yelled and fussed.
It continued this way until Cassidy came running into the kitchen holding a piece of paper with a drawing she had just finished. She took the paper, stuck it on the refrigerator and proclaimed, "There. That should help".
I asked her what it was and she said that it was a "picture for Dylan to remind him how to act". The first face is a picture of Dylan with a smiley face and the second is a picture of Dylan with a sad face...and a line through it.
Ah, so hard to believe that this little one can be such a serious fussbudget, isn't it?
Oh but he CAN! And each time he started to fuss, Cassidy would say, "Uh uh uh! Look at the picture, Dylan. Look at the picture...".
And on another note:
In addition to increasing his signing vocabulary (his very best sign now being "ice cream" which he signs frantically about half-way through dinner), Dylan has also begun speaking (and attempting to speak) more words! This has been really exciting for us! I kept forgetting to get a video and then finally remembered mid-way through his breakfast yesterday, so please pardon the food in his mouth.
Here are a few of his favorite words:
Some other words that he loves to say but that I forgot to ask him about are: papa (cough), up, "Tass" (Cass), sock, mama, dada...
Because we have moved, we have been on an Early Intervention vacation for about 2 months! Yikes! We officially began again last Friday and are looking forward to learning lots in the next 5 months before ol' Dylan heads off to PRESCHOOL!!
As the saying goes, "The days are long but the years are short". Enjoy IT!
