I’m a little behind this month…
I’m two days early but I have a minute so here goes…
I guess at this point you could say that Jude knows a few words. Strangers probably would not understand him but then again I don’t understand most small children that speak. He says uh oh, more, kitty, puppy, and blue (although he thinks blue means blocks because I was trying to teach him blue using a blue block). He can also say Elmo, mama, and Obama (he has a figurine) but they all sound pretty much the same. He is at the point where if you say something he will try to say it back but some letters still seem impossible for him to say. He calls both Jim and I mama. He hasn’t said dada in what seems like months. It’s really weird.
He is still is loving his daycare. I am so glad we made the decision to do this. There are things he has learned there that he may not have learned as quickly with me at home. He doesn’t use bottles at all in school and they have been weening him from his pacifier as well. He is getting really pretty good at using a spoon too. When he wants to.
Last week his teacher did tell us that he was going up to his friends and pushing them but I don’t think it was with evil intentions. We play a little rough and silly with him at home so I think he was just trying to play. (I hope!)
Fun story: This morning another mom was walking in as I left and she asked me if I was Jude’s mom. I was worried she was going to say that he did something to her daughter but she told me that her daughter is a big fan of Jude and everyday when she drops her off and picks her up all she does is say “Jude”.
This weekend we are going to the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival so it will be Jude’s first time at Disney. He is obsessed with Mickey but we will see how he is with the ‘real’ MIckey. I plan to take lots of pictures.
I have a few pictures on my camera but have misplaced the cord that plugs into the computer so once I find that I will put them up.
