I realized this morning that we didn't ever post about going to the Pasteriks a month ago or so. Jonathan had lots of fun with the animals, but what I thought was neat is that he figured out how to climb up the ladder to go down the slide. (More)

At my last job, I discovered that after I gradually developed some pain in my shoulders that my desk needed to be raised. When I got to DynaVox, I raised my chair and desk approximately 4 inches.
My monitor is raised an additional 4 inches, based on the advice of some ergonomic web site that said the top of the viewable monitor should be even with your eyes. (More)

After much disturbing of the poor robins, I have taken off the paneling over the window and have a lovely view of the nest. It is at a rather awkward angle for the camera, but I can still get some shots. (More)

In my research on robins, I found this spectacular site called A Robin's Diary with videos and day-by-day updates.

I picked a great time to take photos of our nest today - the parents had just come back from worm hunting when I got inside. (More)

We already know that Jonathan can match shapes, since he is successful at playing with shape sorters. Now I know that Jonathan can match colors if he wants to. We were playing with his sheet of alphabet stickers, and he took four I's off to put on his hands. Later, he wanted to put them back, and he deliberately matched them up to go in the right places.

A co-worker purchased this game which is kind of fun, and I found the Darth Vader version on Yishan's blog.

Jonathan is saying new words so quickly now that it is impossible to keep track of them. Here are a few highlights from the past week. (More)

I wrote a random signature generator for Pine, my email client. It worked great for a number of years, but with a recent upgrade of Pine, it started having trouble a couple of times a day, where the signature would be correctly rotated, but Pine would hang prior to sending the message, and would not save the content of the message either. (More)

It is so cool to watch things grow. Last Wednesday, May 12, I got all our pots together with new dirt and planted hot peppers, radishes, lettuce and spinach. We also have three cherry tomato plants generously donated by a friend. (More)

5/8 - "I got it"; maybe "I love you"; when I got a candle at church for Mother's Day, I told Jonathan it was one of the smelly kinds, and he held it up to my nose.
5/9 - "Mommy" !!!!!! You know, there is just something so sweet and heart-melting when his little voice says "mommy." I didn't completely understand my friend's reaction when her son said "Mama" for the first time, but now I do.
Other words - "screwdriver"; "Dad-o" in reference to Grandpa Wightman; "zebra"; "outside"
5/12 - "beep"; "watch" as a noun as well as a verb. Jonathan almost was a stowaway when the Kuhns left after dinner - he slipped out the door when Grandma was not looking and tried to get in their car.
5/17 - "button"; "school bus"

This morning, as we were nursing on and off in bed before getting up, Jonathan asked for "milk, milk" so I offered one. But he pointed to the other one and said "side." Oh! You want the other side! Reminds me of a certain aunt. (:

On April 27, we went to the Zoo with Alissa, Will, Nate, and Sam. I sang to Jonathan the "We're going to the zoo" song and he repeated, "zoo, zoo, zoo!" He also repeated "cheetah" but he growled at the bears on his own. The elephants were much larger in real life than he expected and he didn't like it very much. He loved the lions and was upset when we moved on from them. (More)
