It’s been a while since I’ve written about how Nicky has been doing, and as he has just turned three, I thought now is as good a time as any to give you all a bit of an update on his development. I can hardly believe how the time has flown and how my baby is now becoming a boy.
– He has moved from Baby Bible Class to Glow Kids. This means that no longer am I going to go with him into the class.
-He is moving next term from the moms and babes swimming lessons to an older swimming class where he will be learning to swim. Apparently they do a lot of swimming on the noodles. He can already balance independently on the noodle. (A normal pool noodle folded in half)
-The language keeps improving. He is getting better at telling me what he wants, even if it is “Here!” with gestures. Something amusing that he does is place the word “a” in the middle of his little phrases e.g. “juice -a- here!” “sleep – a- here!”
-I bought a letterland book and read it to him. He traced most of the letters correctly and was really interested in all the pictures.
-We are doing a sight word app on the iPad. He loves building a tower for the mouse to run up to the correct word. We have also put some movies on his iPad. I wonder when he is ever going to get sick of Cars.
Now that he is three, we can bring it out and have some fun.
-The potty training is still hit and miss. Still pooping in the pants, although every now and then he actually does it in the potty. He is also now able to go on the big toilet when we are out.
-Sleep has been bad recently because of the nose problems, but I think that tonight we might actually have a good night.
With me… not much is new except I am excited about what is happening with SA Mom Blogs. Fellow blogger Laura and I are teaming up and right now we are putting together a new look with the help of Andrea, a super graphic designer who also did Rattle and Mum, The Grace Factory & Pregnant in Cape Town. So if you’re looking for a designer, you should really check her out.
