There’s something about Toby…
This little guy does his own thing and he has somehow managed to develop a bit of a cult status.
When we are out and about, we will hear people shouting, ‘TOBBBYYYY’ or simply, ‘Chang’.
He has this bizarre way about him where he draws people into him without necessarily being nice and people want more.
Luke’s theory is that because it’s so much work to win Toby’s affection, it feels much more valuable once you do.
And he has this serious face which can be impossible to get him to crack a smile. So maybe that’s why we all laugh a bit harder when something funny happens to him. Like the time the little car ran him over.
He hates all vegetables, unless they are chopped up and in soup. So he eats soup at least once a day.
He loves breakfast and usually can’t wait to climb up into his seat in the morning. Scrambled eggs are his favourite.
Toby usually is really good about walking but this month he decided being carried or pushed in the stroller was the way to go. I had a sore neck for days after carrying him in the Ergo. I think our baby carrier days are about over.
He had a few nap times this month where he was restless and crying for us. One really bad time when he just wanted to lay on my chest. I eventually was able to transfer him down to the floor.
After a lot of consideration we decided to move Toby’s crib into Jude’s room. There is the odd nap time when they are both all worked up and take ages (and a million excuses) to fall asleep but in general its been working out. There is no going back now.
I took the boys to the zoo this month.
It was a super hot day so we headed inside to the aquatic and reptile centre. Toby loved the fish. He squatted by the tank watching them circle around for a good 20 minutes.
They also both loved the geckos, lizards, and iguanas (Jude is crazy about geckos and the colour green thanks to PJ Masks).
We started potty training Toby when Jude had his accident since we had to stay home so much. So far, so good. He wears pull ups for naps and bedtime and the rest of the time uses the potty. I think we will have some risks of accidents when we are out and he is distracted so I just need to keep constantly asking him for awhile.
It is going to be so great to have them both out of diapers.
Toby Chang, you are such an amazing little guy!
