Peas please!

Peas please!, originally uploaded by Venus In Furs.

Gibson is really learning to communicate. He's still not speaking so much, but that doesn't stop him from clearly letting us know what he wants. Yesterday he brought a book over to me that has a photo of peas (to illustrate the color green). When I began reading he waited for me to get to the photo of the peas and then he started to sign 'more' and 'eat'. So I went and made him some peas. And it's not a one off trick, he did the same thing again this morning. He sure does love his peas! It makes me want to make flash cards of the other foods he regularly eats (or learn the signs for all of them).

a little morning chaos

Ignore the mess around the apartment and enjoy the gleeful expression on Gibson's face. He will usually keep popping out from behind the furniture as long as I keep feigning surprise.

post checkup checkin

The pediatrician's visit yesterday went well. Gibson got a clean bill of health and we were told he's pretty perfect. (Todd just said that I don't use the word perfect enough in these posts. This should read, "Perfect perfect perfect. Perfect perfect. Yesterday perfect. Perfect perfect, perfect. Pediatricians perfect perfect." ) It looks like his growth might have finally slowed down a little. He has only gained a half a pound, and 3/4s of an inch in the past 2 months. He's still a big boy though! He got 2 vaccinations and a TB test and he took it all like a champ. And now we don't have to go back for 3 more months (as long as he remains healthy).

Getting Big! Fast!
