On Thursdays we have our Music, Mommy & Me class in the morning (which has been going better I might add). Then we usually have a couple playdates on the other days. Voila! Stuff to do, places to go = sane mommy and happy baby.
Sitting at home just did not work for me OR Parks. I'm so thankful that I think we've finally come up with a balanced system of enough activity to keep us both from being bored. I'm no longer about to lose my mind when Jackson walks in the door! Praise!
In other news, Parks has started communicating much more both verbally and non-verbally!
Here is a dictionary of Parks' language:
Na-na = Mama
Da da = Daddy
Attah = Water
Yessshh = Yes
Dagh Dagh = Dog Dog
Digh = Light
Dis dis = Take me to this
He also signs "more" and "please" and "all done" and has started to wave. It's so much fun to see him communicating and I swear he understands everything I say! The past week I'll say something like, "Parks are you ready for your bath?" And he smiles and runs to the bathroom! Or I'll say "Parks let's go outside" and he gets excited and goes to the door. When I ask him if he's hungry he even says "yessssh". Sometimes he'll point to the right body part when I ask where it is. The difference communication makes in any relationship is amazing. He is finally responding to most of what I say. Such a fun and gratifying milestone!
I'll try to do some more fun posts soon. :)
