Just like sister

Even though Jessica is gone for the week at Nanamma's house, her legacy lives on. I just gave Xander some cinnamon chips, which we're trying for the first time. He gave me "thumbs up," just like Jessica does when she approves of the food I'm serving her. Although he said "thumbs up" but actually gave me "forefingers up."

I can still see you, you know

Twice today when Xander needed a diaper change, I told him I was going to change him, and then went into the bathroom to get a clean diaper. Then, when I got back into the living room, he was on the couch, "hiding" behind one of the couch cushions. Perhaps he thought this was such a superb hiding spot the first time (even though I "found" him), he hid there again the second time. Different couch cushion the second time though.

I tried on a new dress today. Xander came up behind me, looked at me and said, "Pretty." I knelt down so we were closer in height, thanked him, gave him a hug, and he patted me on the back.

At two, he's already more considerate and sweet than many men.

Another one bites the dust

Xander's reached that stage of speech where he's just exploding with words, adding lots of vocabulary, expressing more complete thoughts in longer sentences, improving his pronunciation. It's really great.

But with that, goes the slow disappearance of the very cute mispronunciations. The most recent favorite of mine to drop off is "Jecca." Sister is now referred to as Jessie.

Everyone will be pleased to know he's still saying "No way!"
