It seems like once he really started using the first few words, he started picking up new ones a lot faster. He realizes that he can communicate by signing, and it has cut down on his frustrations a lot. He says "help please" all the time now and points to what he's trying to do. We're proud of him!
We got a wall sticker growth chart for TongJie's room. It's made of those wall stickers that are removable and reusable, so if we ever want to move it to a different wall we can. I think it looks nice in his room, and sort of goes with the forest animal fabric that I used for his curtains.
I mentioned in my last post that we got some clothes and shoes at a yard sale all for $2 - you can't beat that deal! One of the items that we got was a pair of Superman overall shorts. Guess who was the one who picked them out? (Hint: it's the other adult who lives in this house) They're size 24 months and they're too big for TongJie right now, but they might be too small by next spring. They were just too fun to pass up though. I put them on TongJie and he wore them around for a little while at home. It looks like they fit in the pictures because he's sitting on his car, but they don't really fit him that well yet, unfortunately. Aren't they good lookin' overalls?
Whenever TongJie sees one of use reading, he goes and gets a book and climbs up onto the couch with it to "read" too.
He usually doesn't last too long before he gets down to find something else to do.
