Another month has flown by, Layt. Your little personality is so big. I see more and more of it every day. You are hard to keep up with so these posts are so important to me. They make me pause and reflect on all you have been up to the past month so I will never forget. Here is all about you right now.
You like to be read to for the most part. You usually won't sit for very long with me when I try to read to you though. We read mostly at bedtimes. I plan to work on this with you this summer and especially next school year when it is just you and me at home all day. Hannah is just your second mother. You love her and just let her help you with things and do things with you. Lincoln, on the other hand, not so much. You and Lincoln do have a few moments here and there where you play well together. I hope this improves soon!
Hannah was doing your hair for you one morning while getting ready for school. She had already helped you brush your teeth.
Hannah likes to play with you. A big reason for this may be because she can boss you around. Here she has got you all tucked in with blankets and stuffed animals. She came and got my phone so she could take your picture.
I still have to keep my eye on you pretty good though. I know if it gets quiet in the house, I had better go see what you are up to. One day this month I found you in Hannah's room by yourself. You had found her markers and decided to write all over your legs (and the carpet too). I don't know if you didn't like it when you realized what you had done or if you didn't like it when I scolded you. You were very unhappy though.
You have the cutest little walk that I ever did see I think and your run is even more fun to watch. You think you can run so fast and love to do it. This day you discovered how to pull your pants down. One day at the park, you filled your diaper and when I looked at you, you said "poo poo" and pulled at your bottom. One night before your bath I decided to sit you on the potty because I could tell you needed to go. You sat for a while and we talked about going potty. I really thought you were going to do it, but gave up when you started to fuss. I didn't want to push you or make you get upset at this point. So, I took you off and almost immediately you pooped on the floor. Oh well. You know when you need your diaper changed. Sometimes when I ask you if you need your diaper changed, you say no and other times you run to your room to be changed. I look forward to the day when I don't have to buy diapers. We might try potty training this summer. This is a big might. I definitely won't push it, but it would be so nice if you caught on quick.
You like to make us laugh. One night you were making this cheese face because it tickled Hannah and Lincoln so much. You kept doing it over and over again.
