Jude surprises me every day with everything he can say and do now.
He can do everything solo on the playground. It’s made my life easier as Toby is now the one I need to spot on the stairs and slide.
He is still digging his crib and this month we got him a new duvet and pillow. He loves the process of laying down and then get tucked in. Jude also always insists on going to sleep with a book. It’s nice as in the morning we will often find him awake and reading.
Toby did a lot of crying during July and Jude would always rush over and try to calm him down. ‘It’s okay, Toby, you’re okay’. And when I change Toby’s diaper (which he hates) Jude helps me to distract him or hold his hands.
Jude’s patience with Toby has really made my life so much easier when taking care of them together on my own. Toby is still taking a morning nap so it’s nice for Jude and I to have a little break and play something together that is a little more advanced.
Jude’s language ability and listening has helped so much with his behavior when we do errands together. He understands going to the market and supermarket and is really actually helpful when we do so. He can walk a good distance now too and won’t run off.
Hands down his favorite things to do at the moment are dancing, singing, and playing hide and seek. He is really starting to get the concept of hiding, although it’s usually very, very obvious where he is.
