All fall down...

I put Jared down for his afternoon nap yesterday. I heard him get off his bed and then he was very busy playing. (I could hear the noise, it sounded like he was building on another room). I left him because he was happy. After it while it got quiet and I decided to go and see what the damage was and that he was ok. This is what I found…

General Jared update:

He is talking like a champion. He copies any word that you tell him to say. He gives them all his best shot. He will tell you the noise a dog, cat, bird, pig and sheep make. He points to and names his mouth, eyes, nose, ears and teeth. He understands and says “no” to anything he doesn’t want or knows he shouldn’t be doing (he does it anyway though :o). He says “more” when he wants something. He says biscuit. He is a big tease. He will pretend to ignore you for a while and then burst out laughing when he can’t take the suspense any longer. He says “there you are” when you do something for him like take him out of his highchair. He understands up and down and can say both and will also tell me downstairs when he wants to go down in the morning. He can throw and kick a ball. He loves playing cars, complete with car sounds and hooter noises. He still loves music and dancing. Anything with even the slightest beat gets him dancing. He still flirts with the ladies, although now he first pretends to be shy for a bit. He also says “thank you” when you give him something and when he gives you something. When he bumps his head he rubs the spot and says “ow”. He still refuses to hold his own bottle – he has 3 a day. 1 in the morning before he gets up, 1 at naptime and 1 at bedtime. He will also not hold his sippy cup. When he is thirsty he will bring it to me arms outstretched saying “more” with a big smile on his face. His vocabulary really is great, I have honestly lost count of how many words he can say. He is coming along in leaps and bounds and we are loving him to bits. He is a really amazing little guy.
