Van has been a bit slow to talk but it's starting to come along at a slightly quicker pace now. I'm guessing that might halt for a while since now he spends a lot of time with our nanny who only speaks French. He's very much into the "me do it" phase, loves running up and down any and all ramps, loves book time, loves splashing and making a mess during bath time, munches on dog food (ugh), want to do anything his brother is trying to... has a happy dance when we give him something he wants and loves being outside. He gets pretty peeved when Keenan gets to go walk the dog with his dad and he doesn't. I don't think he's anywhere near wanting to be potty trained but then we haven't tried and our potty chair is not here yet. We're hoping to some of our stuff this weekend but we're not holding our breaths on it.
We kept it small for Van's birthday, part of me felt bad because we've always thrown big parties for Keenan. We don't have our stuff and we still feel like we just got here played into our decision. I also failed on his cake, nothing exciting. It was a box cake with pre-made frosting. We did have party horns though...
How many can I get in my mouth?
I tried tricking him by tickling him and snapping a picture.
