R's birthday is coming up soon, less than a month. I've already done all the shopping for presents. We won't have a party this year, no one to invite. He's getting some fun things though, I found him some cool Wallace and Gromit stuff on Ebay. He's really into those claymation movies. His behavior has been a good deal better lately too- thank god. He's doing a lot of pretend play now, which is a big developmental step. It's fun to play make believe with him and watch his mind work. He's also getting a lot better at counting- not just reciting numbers, but actually counting out objects. still working on colors and letter recognition. I try to work in a little bit of 'learning time' activities every day. We're not sending him to a preschool this fall, I'm going to try to home school with him.
B is wonderful, takes long naps, very happy and easy to get along with. Also very strong and mobile for her age and size. She's been rolling both directions for about a month. I am so very, very much in love with her.
