Over the speed bump
IT Boy is making really good progress these days. He’s walking, albeit only when we steady him into a standing position, but he can take a few steps by himself, which is huge. He’s pointing up a storm, and learning to use his signs. The only complaint I have is in the category of vocabulary. Namely, his words for the family. Seems that “dada” is now being supplemented by “papa”. So, if you are keeping track at home, that makes:
Words that equal Daddy = 2
Words that equal Sister = 1
Words that equal Me = Zilch
I can be patient. Really I can. He’s got other words too:
Dog – said in response to anything with fur and four legs. Bears, squirrels whatever.
Ball – whatever he wants to throw and hope that it rolls
Car – he now needs “man time” when we get home to walk around the car, feeling it and talking to the wheels. This does not bode well for his midlife crisis.
Apple – said the other night, clear as a bell. I did a 180 thinking it was Little IT, but it was him.
Door – we go in, we go out, you get the game
So, tomorrow is his collaboration meeting. I expect no use of the “plateau” word, and only that he’s making great progress. Or else.
