While Warren seems to be slow to walk on his own, he is not slow to speak. He says the following words: boo, dog, book, Cleo, juice, vroom (I guess that officially a noise, but I'm counting it!), banana, bath, broom, mama, dada, papa, brush, boat, ball, bye, hi... There may be more, but that's all I can think of at the moment.
His favorite foods right now are pizza and bananas. He also likes ravioli and spaghetti and meatballs. He likes to eat cheese and enjoys snacking on yogurt covered raisins. He doesn't turn down cheese puffs, either! He just started on orange juice and seems to like it too. He is still very picky about drinking milk or soy and would prefer juice any day. In fact, he knows when juice or milk is in his cup - if it's milk, he often won't even take a drink, but if it's juice, then he'll drink it. I am going to try him on rice milk this week and see what he thinks of that, but I am trying to stop worrying about it all. He likes yogurt, so he can get fat, protein, and calcium from that. He really likes to feed himself, and gets rather upset if we try to feed him or help him eat.
He still makes a funny face on demand, but also furrows his brow when he's not happy or when he's unsure.
This is his concentrating face:
He loves to dance and watch VH1 videos. Right now his favorite songs/videos are "Bulletproof" by La Roux, "OMG" by Usher, and "Break Your Heart" by Taio Cruz.
He has two bottom front teeth, four top front teeth, and two top molars - which are still working their way in fully.
He has done well since his tube surgery. He is sleeping through the night and hasn't pulled at his ears in about a week now.
His favorite toys are his vacuum and his blocks in his wagon from papa. He also really likes to look at his picture book I made on Shutterfly.
He has become much more cuddly and likes to rock on our shoulder while holding onto a blanket or his dog lovey.
On Tuesday he will get his fourth haircut! Then Wednesday we are on our way home to Okla. for a couple of weeks. I can't wait to see how he responds to everyone.
You light up our life, Mr. Warren, and daddy and I love you with all our hearts.
