Ivan has finally produced the buds for his canine teeth. His week of runny nose and occasional fever were probably more of an indication of his teeth than a virus I am realizing.
Ivan is the middle child and as such is constantly at war with his desire to hang with big brother Owen or cuddle with little brother Aron. He will, I think, be best friends with little brother as they seem to light each other up when they catch each others eye. It’s pretty amazing how Ivan can be so rough with him at times and still produce such a gleam when he gets down to talk to him.
Ivan’s vocabulary is growing and he seems to be more and more clear every day. Yes, he is still difficult to understand but it’s amazing what I am catching in his garbled tongue.
This morning, Owen came running to me with this bit of news: “Mommy, Ivan is taking off his diaper and pee came out.” It would seem that Ivan had pulled his diaper away so that he could pee outside of it instead of in. I really think he’s ready to begin potty training but I can’t express to you how much I don’t want to get started. Mommy is going to have to face facts and get on with it. Ugh!
