Eldyn: 1 Year + 7 Months
July 15, 2013 § 1 Comment
I have had so much fun getting to know more about Eldyn this month. He is amazing.
Pee. In the Pot-tay: Yes! Sometimes Eldyn pees in the potty! We’re doing our best to encourage this without getting too carried away. But a small part of me has allowed another small part of me to dream about a day in the near to far future when cleaning up potty particulars is an exception rather than a rule.
Side! Eldyn absolutely loves outside (a.k.a. side.) He loves to be outside. He loves to look outside. He loves to talk about outside. When it comes to fresh air, he can’t get enough of the stuff. In fact, I think he actually thinks the word for outside is “sideyay!”
Words to his Mama: Mr. Lew keeps adding and adding words to his list. This month, he’s expanded his use of words from just conveniently mentioning things when he sees them, to using them out of sheer desperation. This second usage can be easily identified because he’s usually wailing these words in the midst of some fit:
- HOT! – I don’t want to get in the car
- SIDE! – I don’t want to go to bed
- BOOT! – Why won’t you let me stomp in the puddle?
- SEREL! – What’s a kid gotta do to eat cereal around here?
