So let's talk about 22 months. We've got a whole lot of words trying to make their way out. Let's just say we've had a language explosion over here. We definitely have to put our special Maddyx language interpretation cap on to try and understand the words, but Mama's usually got it figured out. A few things he's saying all of the time; tweet, tweet (bird), ba ba (bottle), wha? (like we ask Maddyx what do you want? and he replies, wha?), up, mama, dadadaaa, more, waaa (water), night night, sna (snack), baa baa baa (bath), bu buu (belly button). And these are just a few. There are so many more. He turned into a little sponge overnight and he's really just taking everything in.
Maddyx loves the park and is absolutely obsessed with the slide. Don't get me wrong, he likes the swing just fine, and enjoys the socializing aspect of the park, but there's just nothing like going head first down the tube slide. We do it over and over and over and OVER again. Until we tell him we have to go. And then he cries. Every time. Thank goodness he forgets about it about 30 seconds after we walk away.
I have to say that overall 22 months is pretty darn great. Maddyx continues to be a very easy-going and happy little guy. We've yet to see any real signs of *the* "terrible twos"...knock on wood....and (don't hate me fellow mama's) we don't really have any tantrums either. So I guess we've got it REALLY good around here.
Now if I could just find enough energy to keep up with everything! That's a story for another day.
