Watching your child grow and develop is just amazing. Jase is really starting to say more words now. Today he has even said words on his own without being asked to say them. For instance, we were in his closet getting an outfit to wear and he pointed to his shoes and said "shoes" and then he came over to me with his arms up and said "up". What a proud moment. Words that he can say clearly are shoes, trash, coke, jack, jase, block, up and of course dada. The signs he can do are dog, dada, bath, brush teeth, sleep, more, eat, light, fan, banana, bird, plane, ball, bye-bye and he blows kisses too. (not sure the last one counts as a sign but I will) Has anyone noticed that he doesn't say mama or sign mama! He eats pretty much anything and sometimes depending on the situation he will eat something he normally doesn't. Like last Friday he and I went to Waffle House and ate breakfast together, he normally doesn't eat eggs but he ate them up there. Along with the smothered, covered hashbrowns, sausage, toast and waffle. It's funny that now I go to Waffle House with my 15 month old son early in the morning when just a few years ago the only time you would see me in Waffle House would be at 3am after a night at the bars. HA! Jase has become a little fiery and now yells and hits when he gets mad, usually when we take something away from him. He knows that it is something he isn't supposed to do and as soon as he does it he will wrap his arm around my neck and lay his head on my shoulder. Come on! How can you get mad at that? It's hard to teach him not to do something when he apologizes immediately afterwards. One of his favorite things to do is rip out all the little flaps in his books. So I have to put up any books that I want to save for later. (Don't worry Erin, I put yours up before he could rip them out) Another favorite is climbing on the couch and sitting for a few minutes and also getting up on the coffee table. This made my dad nervous as heck when they came to visit. He doesn't do it as much as he did at first and I think it's because I don't make a big deal out of it. He usually likes to do things if I don't want him too. These first few photos were taken two weekends ago when my parents were here then the rest were taken this past weekend.
What on earth is he playing with ??!!What a sweet moment with Abuelito
He was not happy with Abuelita for putting hair barrettes on him. Hence the tears in his eyes.
Last Friday we went to a cookout with some friends.
Having fun with one of Jason's best friends.
