31 for 21: Get it Down Day Three


Jack update: 18 months old
Thought I would jot down an update on the happenings of the little man and what we're working on at this point...not too shabby...I'm proud of all he has accomplished...proud proud proud!

Cruising along furniture

Taking off and out

Rolling and throwing balls back and forth (also throwing in frustration ;-))

Cause and Effect with pushing buttons (e.g. doorbell on playhouse)

Starting to watch pieces of a DVD (Signing Time) and attending to it

Putting balls in the holes of his dinosaur toy (HUGE!)

Standing from a squat and standing alone for about a second!

Starting...and I really mean just starting, to self feed

Laughing hysterically at his funny sisters, mommy and daddy

Showing he dislikes something by pushing it away

Words: dada, lala (Bella), dada (baby and he signs with that)

Signs: more, eat, please, thank you, all done, train, apple, ball, baby, I want, milk (baba), happy, elephant, cracker, cookie, book, mama, banana, hi, no (shakes head), hat, blows kisses, hugs, claps, waves hi and bye bye, fish , cheese, orange

Songs he signs with: The Wheels on the Bus, Itsy Bitsy Spider, Five Little Ducks, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, The Elephant Song, Way up High in the Apple Tree

What we are working on: pincer grasp, pointing, self-feeding with a spoon, drinking through a straw, looking at books appropriately, not throwing everything, LOL!, putting in and on with container play and puzzles, Putting in and actually LETTING GO, crawling on all fours (though his army crawl is SUPER FAST!), watching one DVD and attending to it each day, identifying and distinguishing between two animals, fruits, transportation, and people (boy/girl), standing for longer periods of time, rolling cars

Tell Jack to come sign with Payton! That girl will not give me even ONE!! Jack is a rock star man! That is so funny about the DVD watching too, because I would not for the life of me get Payton to be interested in watching Signing Time. She finally will now for a little bit, but it took us forever to get there!
