Twirls

Monday, February 28th, 2005

Evan loves to spin around making himself dizzy now. Hopefully it’s a short-lived phase.

birthday

Monday, February 28th, 2005

Evan’s talking about his birthday these days and I think he’ll have a really good time when it happens. He likes candles and birthday cakes and hops around when talking about all the lollies. Yum!

School

Monday, February 28th, 2005

Evan’s talking more these days about the other kids at kindy that we don’t know. He’ll talk about Molly, or Ethan Doy, all people we don’t know. He’ll say how Molly got an ow-a, and that it had something to do with a car, and that he could see that when she got out of the car.

He’s also doing heaps better at describing things on the phone, and it’s almost a true conversation. Today he asked where the hammer was, so that he could hammer some nails into the barbeque. Nicole told me later that she wanted to hammer a hanger for a mirror, so he is making things up. But it sounds good!

Pull-ups

Monday, February 28th, 2005

Evan wore his pull-ups today for the first time. It’s a bit of a step backwards from underwear, since he happily goes pee in them, where with underwear, he knows not to do that. I don’t think we’ll use them again.

school

“So Evan, how’s the girlfriend?”
“Fine.”
“What’s she up to these days?”
“At school”

underwear

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2005

Evan wears normal underwear these days and if he needs to go pee, he’ll make his way to the bathroom or to the garden and do his thing. He’s also recently started asking for his nappy when he needs to go poo, so he now knows if he needs to go to the toilet. The next step is to skip the nappy and go straight to the loo. Hopefully that will be soon. His nappy is normally completely dry in the morning, so he may be ready for underwear through the night now. We might try underwear through the night this weekend on him.

Watermelon

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2005

Evan loves watermelon, and in general is getting better at eating fruit. He previously wasn’t very interested in fruit, but now eats plums, pear and watermelon. We’ll keep at it.

One-hundred-and-forty

Sunday, February 20th, 2005

We counted Evan’s books the other day, and he’s got 140! That’s a small library!

Chase me!

Friday, February 18th, 2005

Evan likes to play “chase me” now, where we chase each other around the bathroom/bedroom/hallway in circles. He also loves to play hide and seek and will cover his eyes before looking for us. He hasn’t grasped the concept of hiding from us, but he’ll get there.

Dinky, vagina

Friday, February 18th, 2005

In the bath now, Evan knows what a vagina and a dinky is. He doesn’t say the whole vagina word, but says ‘gina instead. He’ll repeat over and over “Evan’s got a dinky, Mummy’s got a ‘gina, Daddy’s got a dinky, Lauren’s got a ‘gina…” etc. usually naming all the people in the family and friends. Sometimes he’ll say silly things like “Evan’s got a ‘gina.”
