Today you are one and a half! You are full of personality, and a pretty funny little guy.
You still love to be outside. You collect rocks and sticks, and love to dig in the sand and dirt. Now that the weather is getting nicer, we can go to the park more.
You are still quite the little chunkster. You are at about 25% for height and 50% for weight, but you don’t eat as well as you used to. You are pickier than you used to be when it comes to vegetables. But besides that you will eat most things and you love fruit! Sometimes you eat with your spoon and fork and you can drink from a glass no problem by yourself.
You love all things with wheels, cars, trucks, buses, police cars, fire engines, but mostly buses because that is the word you say ALL the time “BUS” “BUS” “BUS”. And it’s pretty funny because you say “bus” and you say “boos” in both English and Spanish/German. We have also heard you say “auto” for car, because that is the German word. Your language is blossoming. You blabber all the time! You definitely understand most things in Spanish and English, and the daycare says that you understand in German too. So, we hope that little by little you are picking up words in all 3 languages. So far you say:
“lu lu lu” = luz (light in Spanish) or luna (moon in Spanish)
“ain ain” =Airplane or Avion
“nein” = no (in German) and “no”
“ich”= I/me (in German)
“Boo” = Book or Buch (maybe English maybe German? I’m going to say English..hehe)
“Guck”, pronounced “kook” = look (in German)
“Ah ga”= all gone
“Auto”= car (in German)
“Bus”= pronounced both ways
“más”= more (Spanish)
“lola” and “neto”= These are the names of your two bears you sleep with (Lola and Ernesto)
The list is growing, and it seems like sometimes you will say a word and then forget it again. I can only imagine what it is like having to learn 3 languages at once, but we know you’re smart and you’re already figuring it out.
We are so thankful that you are still an amazing sleeper. You go to bet at 8pm and wake up between 7-7:30. Naps are usually from 12- 2 give or take a little.
This winter you’ve had bronchitis 6 times in the last 6 months. It’s not very fun for you or us, but we are hoping that you outgrow it. Pretty much your bronchioles aren’t developed enough to fight off a normal cold resulting in bronchitis. It’s sort of like asthma, but trigged by a cold.
You have recently started to love books! Yippee! You love them and will bring one after another to be read to you.
Your Papá takes you every morning to ¨school¨ (aka daycare) and you still love it. When I pick you up in the afternoons you rarely want to go home. You smile at me and keep on playing. We are so happy that you have such a great place that you love.
We love you little bear! You are such a good boy (most of the time :)
Love, Mama and Papá
