Read an Excerpt
Boy, it's good to be back and I have some fun stuff to tell.
I'm now age one, learning a lot of new things and doing well.
I'm walking alone now and sometimes trip over my feet.
I love riding in the car with my very own car seat.
I still sleep a lot at night and also take an afternoon nap.
I like to fall asleep in my Mom's arms while sitting on her lap.
I'm doing some exploring, touching, feeling, pushing and sometimes pulling things off the tables and the shelf.
Mom and Dad watch me closely so I don't hurt myself.
My parents always seem to do the right things and don't give in to me.
It's a good thing they don't, cause then I would be as spoiled as a kid could be
I hold my cup with my hands and lift it up to my mouth to drink.
I make a mess with my food, but I'm getting better with the spoon and fork, I think.
Going from one and a half to two and a half is the "terrible tantrum" stage.
I do it to test my boundaries, and learn what I can and can't do at this early age.
I do it to get attention and my parents try to remain calm and usually pay no mind to me.
That's the best thing to do since I could go on and on, endlessly.
They never yell, threaten, or say nasty things to me and I'm glad
I guess they know it will only make things worse, I really love my Mom and Dad
Don't get me wrong, I know my Mom and Dad are in charge, and sometimes they say, "Do as I say."
And when they say that, boy do I hurry up and do it right away.
I don't like to be away from my Mom. Her friends think I'm kinda fussy around folks I don't know.
I'm not really fussy, I'd just like to get to know people better; you know, take it slow.
Now, I'm getting on to two, another birthday coming soon.
Hope it's like my first one, cake and ice cream, and a gigantic balloon.
Well, my birthday's over and it's on to two.
It's lots more fun cause there's more I can do.
I can run, jump, ride a tricycle and kick a ball.
I like to play by myself, and don't like to share at all
Mom and Dad read stories to me all the time.
I think the best stories are the ones that rhyme.
I'm learning new words every day
My Dad says there are about 150 to 200 words I can say.
