It's undeniable that me and baby enjoy the outdoors so much, we both get our much needed exercise for the day being out and about. Though outdoors time means playtime or mommy-baby errands time, we also do serious playing at home. Well, a baby's life at this stage is all about playing, eating and sleeping. I let baby play on his own here at home but I see to it too that I have time to play and interact with him. It's very important for parents to keep close guidance to their children mos especially during the earlier years.

Baby is very interested now with books, cars and drawing. We already got him his very own table where he can scribble and doodle using washable markers and crayons. Funny that we have to include some preschool supplies in our shopping from time to time so baby has his materials. He's more coordinated now with drawing, he knows how to uncap and cap the markers (he figured out on his own after watching me do it several times) and most importantly, he no longer bites on the crayons!

Baby knows what he wants to do so there's no telling him "play with this, play with that". He grabs the books that he likes to browse and puts it back (sometimes) where he got it. He sounds his ABCs and 123s as "e,e,e,e,e" whenever he sees letters, words, alphabet and numbers. I am not rushing him to speak clearly, besides he's still a baby and we want him to be like that for now. He's growing up too fast! He can now say longer words like elephant, super grover and sesame street but of course in his own baby words which only mommy understands. This reminds me to jot down all his baby words again so I can have a record of his new words. I believe he had about 30+ words around 16 months, makes me wonder how many words he has now at 19 months.

    I haven't seen your blog in far too long. Your son is delightful...such a handsome young man. I cherished every minute watching my three sons grow up and, now, the 29 and soon-to-be 27-year-old boys tower over me at 6'4". Their older brother is only 5'10" at 40 so they tease him all the time!

  4. He is an artist, these pictures are very precious, so adorable moment there!
    All the best for you all!
