Happy Friday! I feel like so much has happened over the course of the last two months. Paul is officially talking, and it has been so incredible to watch his language development progress. He currently tries to say everything we ask him to say, and he has at least 50 words that he uses. Month 19 was all about learning new words and sounds. The day after my last developmental update post, Paul started saying boob, bed, mom, dad, daddy, bread, goodnight, good morning, bus, hi, hey, hello, more, bye bye and grandma. During month 19, he Also started addressing the cats by their own names. He used to call them all Boo Boo, but now he calls them Boo Boo, Owen, and Baby. Throughout month 20, he continued adding more words. He loves to count, so now he says one, two, three, four, five while counting. He says feet, foot, the end, bye bye bus, pasta, kiss, hand, month, nose, eye, eyeball, hair, belly, diaper, ear, book, cup, red, blue, yellow, Matt, up, down, ready, all done, play, table, chair, Monday, chips, food, dinner, water, etc. He is able to point to his facial features and say the words. He is trying to say 2 and 3 word sentences. It’s absolutely incredible. His pretend play has become even more sophisticated now that he has language. He pretends to talk on the phone, and conversations will go like this:
“Hello, well, mama, ok, bye bye”
It’s so adorable.
During month 20, he starting playing with blocks. He loves building them and then saying “timber!” although he says “nimbone!” He also loves completing puzzles.
Paul sleeps from 730 pm to 700 am in his crib. Most nights he sleeps through the entire night. On the nights that he wakes up, it is because he is thirsty; so Matt gives him a bottle of water and stays in the room until Paul falls back to sleep. I love his sleep schedule.
Paul naps for 1 to 2 hours a day. The time he falls asleep varies. Usually he falls asleep at 11 am or 1 pm. He still nurses to sleep for nap only.
Months 19 and 20 were a blast! I’m so excited to see what month 21 brings.
Thank you for reading, I hope you have a happy day!
