Character: Henry is a little chatterbox, talking to me constantly throughout the day, telling me what he’s doing or seeing, and having conversations with himself and his toys as he plays. He has such a charismatic character – very expressive both verbally and facially, and so cheery and enthusiastic about everything. His sweet nature means he gets a lot of attention when we’re out and about – charming people with the funny things he says and saying ‘bye bye’ with a happy wave to everyone we see as we’re leaving. It’s lovely to see him bringing smiles and joy to other people, as well as ourselves. He is like a ray of light when he enters a room.
Henry’s speech is developing so rapidly that I can’t keep up, he’s learning multiple new words every day, repeats everything and he’s stringing together more and more words into three or four word sentences. He can now count to seven and name a few letters of the alphabet, which is so endearing to hear.
We finally transitioned him out of using a sleeping bag for naps and bedtime, but he only used a pillow and blanket a handful of times before refusing to sleep with them, so it’s simply PJ’s to keep him warm for now. We’re hoping to make the move to a toddler bed soon, but we’ll wait until after the baby is born so there’s not much too much change at once.
