J(oash): I am doing great Mom! I really like to go to Opa's house, but I am still a bit sad when you leave. But, we have lots of fun
M: I am glad Joash. What can you do now that you are 21 months?
J:Well, I can say even more words and I like to string two word phrases together. Today I said, "Joash nap" at nap time, which really seem to surprise you, mom.
J: I also like to repeat things that people say to me. I learn so many new words this way and people always seem to smile when I do it.
M: That is because it is so nice to hear you say such nice things. What do you like to play with now?
|The concentration face.|
J: I still really like my books, tractors and trucks. I have a new loader. My new favorite thing to do is hook them all together. Thanks for helping me do this, Mom. I also like to play in the sand. I also like to pretend that different things are eating, like my farmer or my animals.
J: I am getting better at going up stairs. Now if there is a nice railing along the side, I can grab on the banister and walk up the stairs, just like you and Dad. It is fun to do that!
M: And it is fun to watch you do that! I will let you get back to your tractor train. Bye Joash!
