Today was full of Jonathan doing amazing things, but I'll start with Sunday, on which he walked to the store and back, only being carried across a street once when the traffic was too busy - the other streets he crossed himself, holding on to Daddy's hand.
Today, when I asked him to give me the hair clips he was playing with, he immediately complied, giving me one at a time. When it was time to go downstairs for breakfast, I told him he had to put Daddy's comb down, and he did.

Then after breakfast, he stacked my milk and juice glasses very nicely. I didn't think they would stack, but he did it.

Then we went downstairs to leave for Bible study. I gave him his toothbrush and we each brushed our teeth. He got distracted with the shoes, taking his shoes and his boots off the shelf. He played around with putting his foot in his boot. I told him I had to go spit, and when I came back, he had put his boots back on the shelf, and when he saw me, he handed me his toothbrush to put away!

When I put our shoes on, he said, "shoes."

In the stroller on the way, he was playing with the umbrella. I had the canopy partly over him because it was misting, and I couldn't see him. At one point he said, "uh-oh" and I did not see the umbrella fall out, so I looked over to see what the trouble was. He had dropped it over the bar - it was resting on the footrest and so had not fallen out of the stroller, but he could not reach it over the bar. So I pointed, showing him that he could reach it if he reached under the bar, and he got it.

There was something else that he did this evening when Jon was home but now I can't remember it.

I'll end with a list of some words he can say: vacuum, no, don't, uh-oh, ball, toothbrush, trash.

I remember now - he speared a piece of bread with a fork, and successfully brought it to his mouth to eat it.

He got a couple things last night with the fork, and ate them, I remember specifically a piece of tomato.
I did have to help with with the parsley (in the tabbouleh), but he thought it was neat to see how I used my finger to stop the parsley so it could be scooped with the fork, rather than being stabbed.
