round the clock: 20 month old schedule

patience is a virtue? okay, i've got to work on that one. because he is so curious and notices everything, it takes FOREVER to do ANYTHING. which is cool, but sometimes we have to just get out the door. and, when we finally do get out, we have to be sure to pack books and cars to keep LO entertained.

and, i can forget about eating out...for a while at least. sitting in a chair for more than 5 minutes is painful for him. he'd prefer to be under the table. is it terrible that i let him eat off the floor? at least i've limited it to fresh food. that should count for something, right?

he makes more and more choices each day. before, he just did whatever i asked. now, he does what he wants to do and gets confused when i want him to do something else. so far, it's been a smooth ride...just a few bumps along the way. but, i know i need to fasten my seat stop, trantrumville.

all kidding aside, this boy makes my heart glow. times are a changin'! but, it's all good in the toddlerhood. i love that he can communicate with me. he puts together these two (and sometimes three) word sentences. and, i know what he's saying...most of the time.

i'm super nervous about what next month brings. he'll be starting a part-time preschool program. i'm thrilled about the school we chose and all the fun he'll having with the other kids.

here's what we've been doing lately:

he wears sunglasses!

he pushes his own cart at the grocery store!

he shares his cranberries, and shows all the mama's at a CPR class exactly why life saving skills are important!

he falls asleep in his clothes hamper!

he likes the layered look, and his clothes must have cars all over them!

he's learning to share [his food with the dog]!
