Colin has a LOT to Say!

I feel as though we are in a bit of a plateau right now in terms of Colin's walking.  We were so excited because he started taking those steps and we felt like he was trying all of the time.  However, Colin has become VERY stubborn and is walking less and less than he did before.  It's discouraging for me only because I was so excited that it was happening.  I know he will when is ready, but I am being very impatient (especially when I have to carry both kids all of the time!).

Despite the plateau in walking, we are taking off in the speech department.  If only we knew what he was saying...


...it IS becoming more and more clear, but not when he talks so fast! Don't you just LOVE the gestures?

That is just too cute!!!!

Oh, and on the walking front...Sweet Pea did the same thing. She had zero motivation to walk anywhere. We had to find ways to motivate her and I felt like such a horrible mom when I'd give her a goldfish for walking 10 feet without whining. We were working with a behaviorist and she promised that we would be able to fade the rewards. Walking to the park used to take FOREVER, but just this past weekend it was hardly any issue at all. I'm sure that is not what you were hoping to hear, but I wanted to share just in case he does continue to be stubborn about it, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Hugs!!!!
