He is such a typical
little boy and sometimes I can't believe how big he is? When did he grow up?
He has started to sing insults to us (and E!). It started off with "Daddy is a jackass!" I know, that's awful, isn't it? I call Chris a jackass all the time so clearly he's picked up on it. We did think it was funny the first time, not so funny when he sings it in the middle of Sainsburys. I've since replaced it with the word "loser" which seems to be working. He does love saying silly things as insults such as "Daddy is a Caleb" or "banana", "ipad"... The list is endless! He thinks he's really hilarious too.
We have been dummy-free for about three weeks now. It was a complete accident as we actually lost it (I then found it under the sofa but didn't tell him). The first night, he woke up crying but after we settled him down he went back to sleep no problem. The following night was fine but when he woke up he asked Chris where his dummy was. Chris told him that he's a big boy now and doesn't need a dummy. Since then, he has been brilliant without it. He goes to sleep no problem and never asks for it.
We went through a phase this month where he didn't want to wear t-shirts. He'd be fine putting on his trousers and vests but as soon as the top went on, he was pulling at it and telling me that he was stuck. I told him he was stuck and he cried his eyes out for about ten minutes. This happened every day for about three weeks but I think he's over it now. He did once tell me he was stuck in his skin too!
He's obsessed with shadows. Every time he spots one, he points it out to us.
C has been full of compliments and even told me "You look nice" when I got ready one day.
His favourites this month are dinosaurs, monsters and Super Mario.
I've been teaching him the numbers 10-20 and he's doing really well with them. I'm surprised at how quickly he's remembered them. He does think 12 is "two-teen" though!
