Funny Stuff

Well it appears that my computer is not letting me upload pictures so a little journal entry will have to suffice. One of Jansen's new words is oval. Yes, oval. He has a little cube that you push different shapes through (if that makes ANY sense) and he insists on doing the oval first. And once he's pushed it through he stares inside the cube and says, "oval? oval?" over and over. He also likes to point at the knots in the wood in our coffee table and say oval...which IS a correct assessment of their shape. And this morning we could hear him in his crib saying it again and again. Another unusual word he has acquired is rhino. Now if only I could get him to say cat. Something else he loves to the car. Nate's lets him sit/stand on his lap and then they go around and around the parking lot in our apartment complex. He is also having a hard time understanding what is real and what is not. He loves the bears that are on the padding of his highchair and he tries to grab at them. Then he whines and gets upset because he wants to hold them and hug them. He also has a book that has a picture of a piece of pie in it and he will grab at it and point and whine and then finally puts his mouth on the book and TRIES TO EAT IT OFF THE PAGE. I love this kid.

Ok, so Jansen knows what an oval is, has mastered the entire alphabet and drives. Sounds to me like you've got a little "Doogie Houser" on your hands. Watch out Nate, he may finish medical school before you do! Hope you enjoyed conference! Love you all!

I love that he tried eating pie off the page. I have tried that myself. It is not important how you get your sugar fix, just that you get it. Love Carrie
