Temper tantrums are the order of the day, and it's only 9 am. J has not been sleeping enough again and he is awfully cranky. I swear he thinks he is going to miss something. I was researching developmental milestones for this age, and he does so many things that are advanced, except verbally. I don't think there is a problem, it just perplexes me. It says he should say 3 words regularly. Ok he says Mum, Gee (for dog-gee), and Help. But sometimes he puts together phrases--my room, help me Mum. But then he forgets them a couple days later. It's very confusing to me because I don't know if he knows the words/phrase or if it was all a passing fancy. And he has been doing the Mum and gee thing since he was 8 months, shouldn't he progress on to other words? We read books at least 3 times a day, he points at pictures and I tell him the names. My sincere hope, is that this doesn't even matter. That in a year or two he will be talking normally.
Here are the sneak peaks of Scribble Scrabble papers I promised. I LOVE, LOVE the Circus Baby line. I think it is the cutest papers for baby/children I've seen in a while. And believe me it is Hard to find papers that are for boys period, and these are just the right about of baby/shabby chic/classic. I think the rest of the papers are really cute too, but I'm just itching to use the Circus Baby. I've got my pictures printed and I hope to play at J's nap time.
