What's New With You?

We hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend :) Ours was spent with friends, at the zoo and at the park...what more could we ask for?

I figured I'd do a quick post with some Jake updates...sometimes I'm just amazed at what a little sponge he is. Even though he only has a few words that he says, he understands so much of what we say to him.

*His words are ball, bird (though I've only heard this 2 or 3 times), duck, dog, NO, mama, dada, whoa, uh-oh, wow

*Anything that's round is a ball...we were in Sams Club recently and he was going nuts in the cart, pointing & frantically saying "ball" over & over again. I finally realized that he was pointing to the gigantic stack of cantaloupes...we had to exit the produce section pretty quickly.

*Signs he knows are more, all done, eat, milk, please (and he made up his own for wash hands)

*He's starting to point to body parts...so far he knows teeth (he loves to point to mine for some reason), hair, head, feet, belly and hands

*If you say "where did it go?" or "what happened?" he shrugs his shoulder & puts his hands in there air, as if to answer "I dunno!"

*He loves to be outside...it's always the end of the world when we have to come back in the house (or even worse-leave the playground!!)

*He's starting to repeat a lot of sounds....if we say "Jake can you roar like a lion? ROAR!" he does his own little roar back :) (we've only got as far as a lion & a monkey so far)

Life with Pog said...

Jake is so smart. He looks like such a big boy on the slide!!
I've been compiling a list of what Pog does again. I wish I could learn as fast as the kids do!
