do it self

 6 months ago we were worried about B's language development.  He understood a lot but didn't have many words.  He would say "Mom", "Dad", "Milk" (that sounded a lot like "mom") and "Beach, ha-ha!).  He had about 20 signs which was great, but not as many as the other kids had at his age.   His speech has come so far since then.  And he has this adorable way of summarizing and speaking at a slow rate.  Some of his most cute phrases are "I t'oming!" for "I'm coming!" which he says whenever we call him.  None of the other kids say "I'm coming" and rarely come when called.

One time I asked, what I knew, if he'd pooped in his diaper.  His response "Poop'd self."
 He loves to climb trees.  It's best if we let him climb where other parents can't see.  It's intense.
He's such a beautiful child.  He's still very compassionate.  Though he's getting into fights with lP a lot.  More often it's lP trying to tell him the "right" way to play with a toy, aka her way or the high way.  But he'll resort to wailing on her very fast.  At first she would just sit there and scream.  Now she's learning to run.  And we're learning to watch and listen for the danger signs to head off trouble before it happens.

white horse

B recently discovered that the carousel was a thing.  We've gotten 2x20 tickets since May and I don't know if we'll be getting another when this one runs out.  Poor boy.  He loves it.
 Sometimes when we visit this playground he'll just spend 5 minutes sitting on the bench, watching the horses.  The other kids will run off and play. 
 B's sentences are coming along really well.  He'll say things like "".  He speaks slowly, and generally, very precisely.  It's been sweet to watch him progress from 8 words total in May, to countless words in 3-5 word sentences.
Today he said "G... M... time... choc'"  And he stood by the gate (rather than opening the fridge).  So I gave them ice cream...for breakfast.  Then I made crepes!
