Last month, I took Jonathan for his first dental checkup and cleaning.  He did a great job, asking lots of questions and generally having a good time.  But they did discover two huge fillings.  The regular dentist doesn't do fillings for kids, so she had us make an appointment with the pediatric dentist who works in the same office.

Here are the things I've written down over the last few days - and I had the foresight to take the paper out of my pocket before going sailing!

In college, our friend Volus used to say that it was always sunny on Sunday.  Even if it was gray in the morning, the sun was out by the time church was over.  I found that he was right for the vast majority of the time.  This weekend was no exception.  Saturday was rainy, but Sunday dawned bright, clear, and beautiful.

Noah has discovered the fun of taking out and putting in objects to a container.  He also isn't interested in crashing towers.  Instead, he likes to take them down carefully block by block.  He likes to copy us in driving cars around and the other day we were having a blast together - he'd run the car back and forth and then throw it off the table and laugh.   He's cruising the furniture more, and will walk behind a sliding object for a few steps.

Jonathan and I were drawing and coloring together downstairs.  At one point, I had written his name, and then when we were cutting things, I cut a heart out around his name.  Soon after, I went to change Noah's diaper.

Noah likes to clap his hands, and of course we encourage him by clapping ourselves.

 

Yesterday (4/9) he stood up alone for about 2 seconds.

March 20 - Jonathan climbed over our chain link fence all by himself.

 

March 22 - He was pretending that his cereal was "vitamins" and counting them out to himself, "It's Saturday [eat one]...it's Monday [eat one]...it's Wednesday [eat one]...it's tomorrow...." (More)
