5 November 2009: 23 Months

Highlights of the previous 30 days:

1) PJ is now tall enough (36 inches in shoes) to go on the kiddy rides at the Oakland Zoo.  This is quite a relief to Mommy since he was allowed on the rides 4 months ago, but then denied on subsequent visits, apparently due to the "state cracking down".  I'm pretty sure that Oakland has bigger problems than 35-inch kids going on rides for 3-footers.

2) A few days ago, Daddy kissed Mommy and PJ then headed down the hill to work on his bike.  Mommy called Daddy later to report that PJ had asked where Daddy was, and when told Daddy was at work, PJ burst into tears.  Not just tears but huge sobbing, sloppy crying tears...

3) PJ has learned many new words.  Most are one-hit-wonders but not "pop pop", "this", "mum", "bubble", "mine", and "go".
 -  "Nemo" on Oct. 5,
 -  "Pop Pop" on Oct. 12 for popcorn or lollipop,
 -  "Yi" on Oct. 14 for "Ayi" or auntie in Mandarin
 -  "this" on Oct. 18,
 -  "Mum" on Oct. 22 for moon,
 -  "Poo Poo" on Oct. 22
 -  "Bubble" on Oct. 24
 -  "Mine" and "Down" on Nov. 4
 -  "Go" on Nov. 5

4) PJ impressed everyone with his dancing at Mark and Melissa's Dia de Los Muertos party.  This was due to the fact that he was dancing with an audience and sometimes that audience taught him some new moves!

PJ was a "Luchador" or Mexican wrestler for Halloween.  Note that the stick was not part of the costume.  Click here for a high resolution image of this photo, print it in color on 8.5x11 paper, then rub his belly for good luck.

Two photos of PJ with his bear are below.  It's getting much harder to get these photos as he is so fast and always on the move.  In the first photo, he needs to make a poop, an activity which gave him quite a bit of trouble this past month.  Click here and here for high resolution versions of the photos.
 

 
Three photos of PJ playing with bubbles in his bath are below.  Our dentist gave us the bubbles on our last visit, and now PJ makes sure we don't forget to play with them during his bath.  Blowing bubbles, after I have cleaned him, is one of my favorite tasks, along with giving him breakfast in bed in the morning, smoochies, wrestling, bedtime, ...  Click here, here and here for high resolution versions of the photos below.
