More Joshua Talking

Joshua has another phase where several words he says sound exactly the same as each other...this time though, the words, even to me, don't sound even remotely like the words they are supposed to be.

And just for kicks, here's another red-bib video...Joshua eating yogurt by himself, and then using his spoon to scrape it off his face like I do when I'm feeding him.

Piano Toddler

Joshua likes playing the piano, but he doesn't really play it by himself ever. He's a duet kind of guy.

Josh read it

Joshua loves reading. His favorite book is anything with a moon in it, especially Goodnight Moon. We have read that book so many times he can "read" it himself. Ok, so he really just goes to random pages and talks about whatever is on that page. With other books he "reads" the book by saying "wawawa" and it's so funny.
Here's a video from a few months ago with Joshua saying his favorite parts of Goodnight Moon:

New Years' Fireworks

Dave was working for New Year's Eve this year so we celebrated a couple days later, still within the 3-day law for fireworks. We got out our sparklers and a few other fireworks and went outside to show Joshua. Joshua loved them and was talking about them for weeks afterwards. We were outside maybe 10 minutes and our hands were hurting from the cold, so we went in and turns out it was like 2 degrees outside...whoops. We had to run Joshua's hands under cold water to warm them up. Still fun. We got some mediocre videos of his first experience with sparklers:

Pillow Fight!

I started watching my niece and nephew some mornings so my sister-in-law can sleep since she works at night, and it's been fun watching them play with Joshua. D is 8 months older than Joshua, and T is about 4 months younger than Joshua. It's been really great that they play together because I get a ton done actually, since Joshua doesn't need me every second. Here's a great video I got of Joshua and Talia playing together on our new couch last week:

Say What??

It's really fun to witness your child learning new words. Joshua has some doozies that just do not sound like the words they are supposed to. Here's a video of my favorite one. It's blurry because someone got their sticky fingers on the lens, but you can clearly hear the 5-syllable oatmeal. :)
