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)

April 20 - Completely screwed on the parmesean cheese lid (empty jar.)
April 22 - "chalk"
April 25 - Tripped while dancing on the couch and landed on the coffee table - nasty bruise by his eye. But thank God, his eye is fine. It looks like he was in a fight...
April 26 - "basket" , "dark", signed "mommy"
April 27 - Said, "Daddy? down down, truck." When I said, "you want me to come downstairs and play trucks with you?" he said and signed "please."
Successfully put most shapes into the tupperware shape sorter. At first, he would only put them in if he saw the right hole. After I showed him how to look, he would pick it up and find the hole. The only shape he wouldn't do was the pie piece.

When I said a year ago that maybe Jonathan would be in college by the time this was all done, I was joking, but apparently, it might come true. (More)

April 16 - "buzz" like a bee, "thank you" !! what a thrill for Mommy - and he's been consistently saying it when we give him things, "whoa" for slipping or similar. Unscrewed the toothpaste cap.

April 17 - "cheerio" with perfect pronuncation, "people", "bonk" (and repeatedly bonking his head on a metal railing...), "roll" (the napkin ring rolls nicely on the dining room table.) Third haircut - looks more and more like a little boy instead of a baby.
