That proud look Cam is sporting is common lately. He has been learning a lot of new things and mastering some old one’s.
He has finally mastered pouring himself a glass of water from a dispenser with a spigot. Until now he found positioning the cup under the spigot hard, or felt like letting the water flow into the bucket below, or did not get the angle right. But now (with tonnes of cuter-than-cute concentration) he has it down pact.
Another tricky activity that I got a snapshot of is his tonging transfer. It takes a lot of hand control and muscle to do this one but he is a pro.
Speaking of muscle, he melted some mama hearts at playgroup this week when he asked to “squeeze orange juice?” and grunted “squuuuuueeeeeeze” as he tried so dang hard! He got some help and enjoyed it with some carrot that he helped me peel!
Cameron’s vocabulary, at almost 20 months, boggles my mind at times. He comes out with new words daily and the clarity of them is amazing. Just now he randomly said “football” when Mike talked about a recent game.
Like his mama (unfortunately) he finds making mistakes really hard. He struggles with accidents and finds some new things frustrating if he can’t work them out quickly.
It is often hard to know how to reassure him because I know what he is feeling and I still struggle with it at times.
Please let me know if you have any questions as I do know that I use this blog as more of a diary and I would like to involve you more 🙂
