Jonathan is pretty good at catching a ball or object now.

He likes for me to print out coloring book pages for him.  But he doesn't want to color them.  He likes to cut the object (usually an animal) out.  He does a very nice job.

He can now reach our lightswitches if he jumps.

Noah can crawl backwards down the stairs, though so far has not made it all the way down before deciding he wants to go back up again.  I'm still not comfortable letting him do it without supervision, so I usually carry him down after he stops making downward progress. 

Oh, and I think he says "ball" now.

We went swimming yesterday, and Noah went in himself twice - once while sitting on the steps and reached (rought?) a little too far, and the second was planned; he deliberately turned around backwards and climbed off of the edge into the pool. I am not sure if he did it because he knew I was there or if that wasn't a factor.

Both times he went all the way under the water, and was mostly just surprised, but climbed out of the pool to go sit with Mommy for a couple minutes to recover.

You and Jonathan may enjoy our new site, Kerpoof, where you can create your own printable coloring pages (by adding objects to a variety of backgrounds - sort of the opposite of cutting them apart!):
We also have ready-made examples (that you can modify if you like) at
If you try it, let us know what you think!
