Aidan has been growing by leaps and bounds in the last month both in body and mind. We left Vancouver with 3 pairs of shoes that fit and by the weekend of the first week they no longer fit. We brought out his Aunt PJ’s old tricycle and he couldn’t quite push the pedals all around because he was too short and a week later he can.
Language is another story where his grammar is exploding. Aidan has explored both plurals and possessives for some time but his sense of 1st, 2nd and 3rd person is just beginning to blossom. You know you are a geek when you mainly notice after he took a ding out of his Grampa’s floor the he said “I threw the bone.” He is also coming out with a number of new phrases including “Yes indeed!” Aidan’s sentences are also becoming much longer and more complicated. He understands the sequence of first, next and after, which just blows my mind!
The other (and last for this post) thing that has exploded is Aidan’s singing ability. Not an “erner erner” in the bunch. He now sings a medly of Twinkle, Twinkle, The Alphabet Song, Baa, Baa Black Sheep, Skinamarink, 5 Little Monkeys, Bingo and new today I am Slowly Going Crazy. I am sure you also see the irony in this.
Have a great one!
