Its been cold here in the city. Damn cold. So cold that my eyes hurt from the multiple playing of yo gabba gabba.
We do what we can to stay entertained during the weekends. Today we went to Ikea. In Paramus. On purpose.
You see, Sidney (or “nee” as Jack calls him) shares some similarities with his predecessor. He likes to pee in Jack’s room. In the same spot Hollis’ seemed to prefer. So, without over analyzing, Arch and I decided the boy needed a new rug. And so off to New Jersey we went. Arch will post separately on the joys of house-training a puppy in NYC.
Jack took to this Ikea much better than the one in Elizabeth. This one had these little kiosks for kids to play with so, when he had enough, we could just put him in front of kid friendly totem pole and continue with our shopping excursion.
Those Swedes, they’re quite clever.
Jack would turn around ever once in while from batting at large turning objects to smile and just you know, make sure we hadn’t strayed too far… He’s turning into such a little person these days, it’s kind of amazing the changes that are taking place.
Besides the mobility, jack’s vocabulary is expanding. The words are completely unintelligible, but they sound kind of like this:
“do -do” – which clearly means doggy.
“bah – do” – bad dog…hmm – where do you think he got that one from?
“ligh” – referring to light-switches…not lights.
“Bird” – clear as day, very weird.
“buh-buh” – accompanied by some hand licking, which is Jack’s version of blowing a kiss…enough to melt your heart.
“i did it” – but he strings it together so it’s all one word “ididit!” He says it to himself through out the day. Super cute.
Oh. And he signs: All done, more, milk, doggy
The kid is a super genius, I may be biased but I am just saying, my boy, he blows me away.
