C at 23 Months

I'm seriously finding it hard to believe that in a months time, C will be turning 2! It doesn't seem like that long ago that we held his 1st birthday party. 

Firstly, his speech is continuing to come along fantastically. Over the last 6 months, Chris and I had been very worried that he wasn't saying very much but in the last month he has learned to say: 

  • Pascal (he's obsessed with Tangled!)
  • Nice
  • No
  • Mr Tumble
  • Bogey (thank you Chris!)
  • Bubbles (but he pronounces it 'buggles')
  • Ball
  • Book
  • Me
  • All done
  • Sorry 
  • Toast
When he uses his markers, he can tell us what each colour is too. I am so proud of him! He also knows the number '2' when he sees it written. We often sing 'Baa Baa Black Sheep' to him and he tries to sing the end. He doesn't quite know the words but he does his best with the tune. 

With the new baby coming, we're trying our best to use the buggy less. We don't drive though so we are usually out for most of the day. C would get too tired if we left the house without it so one of is would push the buggy while the other has C on his harness for a bit. 

He is still obsessed with opening and closing doors, cupboards and drawers and if he have the fridge open, he'll run over to close it. He has also started to tidy his toys away into their toy boxes before dinner. I think he's going to be a very neat and tidy child - hopefully! 

Every time I give him a bath, I'd get him to say 'bye bye' to his bath toys and get him to hand them to me to put them away before I lift him out. He's now started to do that of his own accord whenever he is ready to get out. He'll hand me a toy, look at the toy storage bag and say 'bye bye toys'. Adorable!

He's recently rekindled his love for the book 'Me' by Emma Dodd. He will bring it over to us, say "me!" then have us read it to him. When it's finished he'll say "oh" sadly so we'd have to repeat it. Over. And over. And over. He loves it!
