A Week of Firsts

This was a big week for Nate.

  • He got his first action figures (Daddy bought him the BIG GI Joes)
  • He figures out how to make his Cozy Coupe and his tricycle go FORWARD... he had mastered backward a while ago
  • He actually used a sentence (I Like it!) in front of a witness
  • He had his first Dippin' Dots (which he loved)
And one funny incident to report:

I put Nate in his crib for his afternoon nap. He wasn't really tired so I wasn't really surprised when he didn't fall instantly asleep. He was talking to himself and then he started to call for me. He was pretty persistent about it so I went up to check on him.

I found him plastered into the corner of his crib. He had lines up all of his binkies (pacifiers) on the window sill and he was infront of them, almost guarding them. He was pointing to something on his mattress, obviously distressed. It was then that I noticed he was sans diaper (whether he took it off or it fell off on its own remains to be seen). I THEN noticed that what he was pointing out was poop. Apparently he had felt the urge to go after the diaper was off.

I got him cleaned up and rediapered, stripped the bed and remade it. It was only when I was putting him back in his crib for his nap that I realized he had "rescued" his binkies and gotten them to the safety of tte window sill so that they wouldn't get poop on them. He had then put himself between his most treasured possesions and the danger. It was hysterical to think that in Nate's world is is "Women, Children and Binkies, first!"

That is hysterical! At least he has his priorities in order.
