  • Has recently started saying, "Kiss?" and then leans in to kiss me (HEART MELTED)
  • Related: Always kisses Coco goodnight before bed (along with anyone else who happens to be over)
  • Whenever he shares something or brings something to somebody, he always follows it up with, "That was nice"
  • Some recent phrases that have us giggling, "Otay", "Here you go!", he's also started talking a lot about what he has done or is doing, ex: "I play with Eleanor" or "I paint a picture" 
  • We recently started a weekly class in Prospect Park called Brooklyn Forest School and he LOVES it, but his favorite part has to be at the end when they tie silk scarves on sticks and call them "kites". All I hear on the way home is "I played kiiiite, I played kite!!!" ; Also loves the tiny ceramic cups we drink our tea out of when it's snack time -- I can't make this stuff up
  • Started using his blocks to make tracks for his cars
  • Becoming less and less shy with each day and more outgoing with people we meet
  • Still continues to love bubbles (we can't go in or out of the apartment without him mentioning them (they sit on a shelf near our entrance--the whole building shares them)
  • cars, buses, taxis, planes, helicopters, bikes -- most locomotives still remain top favorites
  • HORSES = still the best; he recently went on a pony ride at a farm upstate and was thrilled about it
  • Climbing the three flights of stairs to our apt. continues to be an uphill battle (pun definitely intended) and if someone would have told me that this one simple act (done daily MANY times) would be the bane of my existence I wouldn't have believed it (sigh)
  • Still hasn't tried climbing out of his crib (but perhaps I just nudged fate), but sleeps with a pillow and blanket (though most nights he kicks it off)
