mikey update

mikey is doing well. not so many tantrums lately. he is getting to be a big boy. he gave up his pacifier a week ago and doesn't need his afghans to go to sleep anymore. he is learning so many things. he can now open doors without much trouble. he helps put things away and picks things up and give them back to you when you drop them. this morning when his daddy left for work he got mad and dragged him back into the house!
he can brush his teeth pretty well on his own and can put on his own shirt, socks and pants.
he has been practicing making different sounds with his mouth lately.. which i hope is a good step toward talking.
he is eating with his spoon more often now.. though he still uses his fingers sometimes. his favorite things to eat lately are celery, carrots, pancakes (no syrup!), candy corn, rice milk chocolate, chocolate cake with white frosting and sprinkles, barbecue manwich, fried potatoes, chorizo and eggs, raisin, figs, prunes, dried cranberries, salami,... that's all i can think of.. but he has a BIG appetite lately.
and he went to the doctor for a well visit and his is 45 pounds.. but he feels heavier to me!
i'm going to post pics of some of his favorite things later.

Mikey is learning so much lately and doing so well! I wish I could be there to give him big hugs!

I'm so very happy that he is progressing so well in so many areas, great that he is making more noises too. You are a wonderful mum. HUGS, Catherine xx
