In the past day or two, Jake has developed an independence of sorts (well, a limited independence anyway) and wants to play by HIMSELF. If you get near, he will hold out his arm as if to say, “Please, just leave me alone”.
Yikes, this started a little earlier than I planned!
Earlier I knew he was in my room but wasn’t sure where he went…
But then I got this dirty look. Like he’s saying, “FOR THE LAST TIME, LEAVE!”
Jake, for the record, you were playing with my nailpolish. You’ll appreciate my removing you from that situation in a few years.
He’s also discovered a new use for his Elmo toolbench and is mesmorized…
We started practicing more with plates, forks, and spoons this week. He loves to sit at the table and is proud of his new placemat. Luckily we’ve only had one plate throwing incident (knock on wood) but otherwise Jake has done really well!
Still loves the bath!
No, she’s not allowed on the bed. But how do you say no to that??? I love our sweet Maggie girl
Tomorrow night begins my 3rd semester as a college professor. Sheesh, I should be getting tenure soon! Luckily (or unluckily…not sure) for my students, I will be 9 months pregnant by the time we take our final. And no, I won’t be teaching a class this summer for anyone who was interested in signing up! Unless you’d like the class to be on sleep training a newborn…
