Quoting Mel & a girl named Pey:" He will get there! The quiet ones are the ones that sit back and take EVERYTHING in! People are fools ... [snip!] ... in school like I did! It makes me mad we don't qualify for pre-k even with the baby (I just checked). It's not very fair imo."
Exactly!! His therapist is always talking about how observation he is and how you can SEE him thinking lol. Since the day he was born he gets this look on his face like, "wtf?" It's this scrunchy eye brow face, like he's trying to figure everything out. When he was 16 months old I let him have my keys to play with and he sat them down on the floor, looked at each key for a minute, picked up one of the non car keys and walked over to the front door and started trying to put the key in the lock. I was dumb struck. I haven't ever shown him that, no one has. He just pays attention. And we very rarely leave the house with him, so in the one or 2 times a month he sees me unlock the door he figured out that the little silver keys open the front door. Now he knows which key is for our van and which key is for the jeep and he knows the van makes noises when you push the keyless entry button, but the jeep doesn't. It amazes me the things he understands that I would have never thought. He at 19 months old was able to push the home button on my iPhone, unlock it, slide to page 3 and open whichever app he wanted to play with, then close out of it and find a different one when he wanted. And he also understands that you slide my phone side to side to unlock it and Daddy's phone you slide down, because he has an Android. It just amazes me sometimes. I think he knows his colors, but since he won't talk I can't know for sure. If I ask him where blue is he'll push blue on a toy of his that sings the colors. He does green and yellow too.
On a side note I am suddenly having a lot of blood again and some very low pain. Some of it is gooey brown and then there's some bright red and dark red of the same consistency. I wish I knew if I was gonna go into labor so I could just relax one way or the other. And of course we're under a tornado warning right now
haha. DS1 was born with all the sirens going off for tornadoes so it would be fitting
