In the past couple of months Landon has become much more attached to his loveys, or as he just started calling them, "babies". These are his blanket and an elephant pillow. He likes to drag them out of bed with him, and wants to lay his head down on them when he is sleepy.
Lots and lots of words and short 2-3 word phrases being repeated or said on his own...
Twooo, GO! (Trying to count 1-2-3 Go. The only number he can say so far is "2")
On shoulders (when he wants up on daddy's shoulders)
Unnt dat! (I want that)
Coffee (pointing at mommy's)
Bubble (used for referring to bubbles, and 'buckle', on his booster seat and his carseat, which he now proudly buckles by himself)
Bye bye ________! (fill in names, boo-boo (bomberos - firetruck), choo choo (trains when we see them), etc
Fresa (strawberry - an improvement from last month's pronunciation)
Ba (Caballo - horse)
Cu-chada (Cuchara - spoon)
So we decided that with all of Landon's climbing out of the crib it was time to convert to the toddler bed, which we did a few days after getting home from SoCal. Landon was pretty excited about his new bed and for a week or two afterward would point to it often and say "bed". Here he is below on the day we made the switch. He is doing pretty well, doesn't always want to lay down when its time to sleep (because of course its more fun to keep playing) but he will usually go to sleep quickly and can now get himself back into bed if he gets out. :)
|Thought I'd try some of the colored bubbles. It warns you on the bottle that it is "Messy Fun", and boy are they right. These were yellow so not so visible in the picture, but he was covered and had to take a bath after playing!|

|We have had this balance bike since June, but Landon just began to take an interest in it and is quite proud that he can get on and off and walk around on it by himself|
