I sometimes forget that there are other people other than my mom and sister-in-law who like to see pictures of Nugget. So RB Pam, this post is dedicated to you! Thanks for the kick in the pants to post again.
March was relatively quiet for us. We had one week where Nugget was really sick with RSV, but thankfully that was the only issue we had all month.
Nugget's vocabulary is growing EVERY day. Some of his words don't sound exactly like English, but I know what he means. For example he will say 'awn ooo' when he means thank you. For the word off Nugget says 'ice'. I'm not sure how some of his words come about, but I love how he is learning so quickly. Best of all Nugget does understand quite a bit of what we are saying to him. In no time at all I am sure he will be talking up a storm.
No television for the first year after coming home is one of the suggestions given to foster attachment. For the first nine months Bear and I didn't watch T.V. when Nugget was awake. After the hand accident we let Nugget watch Elmo clips on the iPad. He loves Elmo ~ LOVES him. We now let Nugget watch one video in the evening and he always gets so excited. This is how he sits for the first few minutes of the show:
Early in March we went to a home show. There was a little petting zoo. Nugget had more fun running around in the sawdust than seeing the animals at first.
|Then he enjoyed petting the goat...|
|...but he LOVED the piglets!|
|At the ball field between high school games.|
|Nugget loves fish.|
I came out of the laundry room one morning and caught a Cheerio thief in our pantry. :o)
It's hard to believe that 10 months ago Nugget could not pick up a Cheerio and now he can snap blocks together. This amazes me.
Every day Nugget runs up and down the hall with his wagon.
Nugget and I have been home all week on spring break. We haven't done anything very exciting, but spend lots of quality time together. It's the best spring break I've ever had!!
