I was reprimanded for not being more diligent about blogging. Fair enough...I'm hoping to catch up with our summer activies. I'm super excited about the fall and the beginning of September makes me all giddy. Lots of fun things to blog about coming up!
I thought I'd take some videos of our morning. This is of course only a small portion, but you get the idea of how funny and cute Blaise is. He really seems to be in a great stage of understanding, but still baby-like at the same time.
My Mom was interested in seeing Blaise walk with his (my old) toys. He is clearly becoming more opinionated:
It is really hard to take videos of him because he's always wanting to SEE them at the same time. Here are some of his words:
He used to say "ball" like "bau," now for some reason he says "bee"...I don't know...
He LOVES this (forbidden*) Christmas book. It was a present to me from MY Grandma and Grandpa Scofield in November of 1980 after a day of Christmas shopping.
*It's not really forbidden, it is just that Grandma Rose feels Christmas books should only be read during Christmas season. I'm not so much a stickler for tradition (in this case), I'm all about Christmas music before Thanksgiving! ;)
We fixed the window in the forbidden book - here is Blaise demonstrating his "thank-you" sign:
He starting hidding in the cute little cubby hole in his room yesterday. He was pretty excited about the results :)
Here he is turning around to head back to hide:
He is really good at puzzling. I started giving him two at once with the pieces mixed to up the challenge.
This was (I think) the first puzzle that he mastered. It's great with the knobs!
This and the first animal puzzle both were mine when I was little. Grandma Rose sure does have some storing skills! Not only is it nostaglic, but great recycling! (or is that upcycling?)
