It’s amazing how much stuff we have and it’s amazing how much packing paper the moving company used to wrap up all our stuff. As we unpack the boxes, we are filling them back up with paper. We are going to have one large haul for the garbage man.
No pictures this time- I haven’t had enough energy to get the camera out but I’m in the mood for procrastinating and thought I’d share a couple of cute moments that Brendan has had the past few days.
I think moving has been good for Brendan’s speech. He starting saying a couple new phrases since we’ve moved, which is very exciting for the mom and dad of a late-talker. Today, when Chris started walking up the stairs, Brendan called out “Hey! Where are you going?”. He needed to know since he’s very attached to his daddy. Later, he was playing with his cars and said “Bye, have fun” as he pushed it in a tube. That made me laugh since that’s what I say to him every time he goes somewhere without mom. He’s also been walking around our new house yelling “daddy” over and over when Chris is in another room and Brendan can’t find him. It’s funny to me that these things are such a big deal, but for Brendan it is. I’m glad that he’s understanding more and feeling more motivated to talk, which is something that his speech therapist wanted us to keep working on with him. In the past, he probably would have just been screaming or crying if he couldn’t find Chris, so for him to be calling out “daddy” is a big leap for him. I’m glad that he’s still making progress and it’s so exciting for us to hear him talk more.
Well, that’s about it for now. I’ll post more in the near future and I’m sure I’ll have lots of photos then but for now we’re taking things slow. We really like the area we’re in and we’re excited to explore more- especially since the weather is supposed to be quite nice this week. Stay tuned.
