Little things like me telling Hunter "hey your underwear is on backward." and him responding with "no, it's on forward." make me smile. His verbal skills are really good. He's using "me" instead of "Hunter" when referencing himself. Using "the", "and" and "a". Which is really cool.
It's weird, on behavioral stuff, I have to remind him again and again but with words and ideas, one time usually suffices. For instance, I described the sun as a big ball of fire and he's been saying that ever since.
He's really interested in why day is light and night is dark and asks about where the sun goes.
He's watching the Magic School Bus right now. He likes documentaries.
I'm really excited about teaching him. He's a sponge. And a really absorbant one.
He didn't really talk much till he was past two, but now he's blazing along. And fairly easily understood too.
I was looking at the milestone charts and he's doing things on track for some things and at the level of a 5 year old in others. Definitely precocious.
He's writing some letters, H, U, N, T, E, R, M, O, and I. He recognizes his name, Mama and Dada when written. Oh and HEB, lol. We're picking out letters in the wild, like on signs. A totally fun game.
He knows most colors and shapes, animals, things, foods, and he asks why pretty much constantly.
Having a potty trained child is so awesome, I can't even explain. I'm so glad to be done with diapers.
Being Hunter's mama is a wonderful adventure. Because he's smart, funny - yes, he's funny. And his jokes are getting better all the time. And he's sweet and loving.
But he's also a little punk. He's as strong willed as we are. Which is pretty darned independent and willful. But at least I understand that a. It's not personal and b. It's a reflection of our own personalities, we made him from our genetics. Of course he's hard headed. We'll try and be as patient with him as we would like others to be with us.
Okay, gotta clean. Bye!
