Time keeps passing. Yesterday, I looked back at Remy’s newborn pictures and couldn’t believe how small he was. Small in a “big for a newborn” kind of way, that is. But now he’s big and destined to get bigger still. Here’s the latest trends in Remy land.
Counting Things – Remy’s a compulsive counter these days. We count everything. Daddy taught him to count to 100 and he gets super excited about anything with numbers.
Early Reading – We’re in the pre-reading stage. He recognizes and can spell a few small words like car, sun or bed. When we read books together, he’ll say ”tell this one!” Then he commands us to “say it slowly” and turns the page before we can finish.
Swimming Regularly – Gary’s been taking Remy to the pool on a regular basis. He’s developed a preference for the floatie vest, when before he wouldn’t touch the thing. Now he can float wherever and will occasionally jump off the wall into Mommy or Daddy’s arms. He’s getting more courageous in general in the water, which is nice to see.
Bossy Man – The kid’s not afraid to let his will be known. This isn’t new. Hasn’t subsided either, but he’s becoming more articulate about it all.
Mr. Talks a Lot – He might be a bit quiet around strangers, but he doesn’t stop jabbering when he’s at home. Doesn’t. Stop. Except when he’s sleeping, although he sometimes says things when he’s waking up.
Tomorrow, we’re going to friend Grier’s 2nd birthday party. Remy’s excited to see Grier, play with his truck and give him a hug. Here’s some pictures.
