I have been tracking Bennett's words for awhile, thinking I would make a list on here to show how his language is progressing. That was a couple months ago...now, I think it may get a little long and boring if I write down all his words, so I'll try and keep it to the cutest ones!
Bikes and Kites
mo pwease (more please)
no webey (no wembley)
dop it (stop it)
MY (nana, ball, etc.)
wiwinc cool (lincoln school)
i want noodos (i want noodles)
rock rock noodo (asking for rock-a-bye noodle)
biwd eat beed! (bird eat seed)
mo waduh pwease (more water please)
blue (bwu), green (gwee), yellow (wewo), pink (pee), brown (bwow), gray, white, purple (puhpo)
wuh, wuh, fee, nine, nine, nine! (one one three nine nine nine!)
Knows the letters A B C D and that his name ends with TT :)
He loves art. Seriously loves it. He spends hours coloring with crayons, markers, colored pencils, pens (which may have been on the couch, in addition to his paper...). He loves to paint, too. He concentrates sooooo hard while he is coloring; it is adorable.
He has become very possessive of things that are his, or that he has one time touched (pretty much anything he looks at). MINE! and No! Meeeee! are common phrases around here.
Beebs is a Daddy's boy. He does not allow me to put him to bed at all anymore, nap included. Once he stopped nursing (at 21 months, same as Lincoln), he wanted nothing to do with me at bedtime anymore. If I try, or if I go in when he wakes at night, he screams and pushes me away while yelling, "DADA!". He also likes Lucas to give him extra hugs when he gets hurt, even if I have already given him one. Trying not to let the favoritism bother me (I'll admit, getting a free pass at bedtime is nice; but I do miss the snuggles!).
trash truck (or as bennett says, "ha-ha!")He sings a lot :)
2 days ago he finally answered us when we asked what his name was: Bebo. When we asked if it was "Beebs," he said, "NO. Beeee-bo." hahaha!
Loves to vacuum. Loves chocolate. Loves Lincoln and asks for him when he is at school. Looooves his bike. Wants to be outside all of the time. Loves to swim. Tries to use the potty chair. Loves cheese. Loves strawberries. Loves to be rocked and snuggled. Does not like it when I try to sing to him :) Favorite books: If You're Happy and You Know It, Pete the Cat, Llama Llama, Knuffle Bunny.
Beebs is full of joy, laughter, and mischief. We found him in the bathroom today eating hair gel (first call ever to poison control; he was fine...). He is very sneaky!
This year has been so much fun. We love you, Bennett, and look forward to all that is to come!
