Also, over the weekend when we had the TV on, there was an African American woman on the news, I think it was. He stopped and pointed excitedly, so we asked what? Who is that? Joshua answered "ME!!"
He can and has for awhile been able to point to his eyes, ears, nose (sometimes), teeth, tummy, and belly button (his favorite). He also has been saying "apple", "up", "down", "out", "off", "Rocky" (his yellow stuffed raccoon), "donkey" (what his stuffed animal, Eeyore is). He amzes me at the words he already knows and says. He also says "potty" (no, we aren't potty training him yet, but when I'm home alone with him, I'll say mommy has to go potty and he stated repeating me and running ahead of me to the bathroom.) I also heard him say today for the first time, "no". Yikes, off to bed for me.

His nursery is in a jungle theme, so he has a picture of a lion and other animals hanging above his changing table, as well as on his bedding and wall hanging. His first animal noise was a kind of lion's roar; really cute. Just yesterday, I was going through a book of animals and when we came to the pigs, he didn't oink, but made a snorting sound! Whenever I pointed a pig out to him, I'd oink and also snort like a pig. He'd laugh like crazy when I did the snorting,! But hearing him snort is so funny, when I realized what he was doing I couldn't help, but laugh! Also, when we look at his baby animals book and get to the gorilla, he beats his chest. Oh my gosh, this is adorable.
He also says wawa for water and mil for milk and he says and signs more. He also signs fish when we sing the fish song or sometimes when he sees a picture of fish. I bet he'll enjoy "Finding Nemo" when he is a little older. He says feet and shoe, also. He tries to repeat us a lot. He's starting to put block shapes through the right holes. It takes a little bit for him to figure the right hole, but he is getting there. Well, he is awake now, so I better get going!

Also, last night, I went to Walgreens and spent only $5.70 for all this: (I was going to take a picture, but forgot and unpacked everything. I got a jumbo package of Huggies diapers, paper plates, 6 Hershey bars, and 3 packages of Jello. Actually, now that I check the receipt, I should have saved 30 more cents, because the candy bars were 80 cents each and I had 3 buy one got one (BOGO) free coupons and she entered only 70 cents for each of the coupons, but the diapers at regular price were 10.99 (now I'd never spend that much), so basically everything else was free and the diapers half price. Oh yeah, I also got $2 in register rewards to use next time!

How comfortable is this BABYBJORN carrier? Well, it's the one our head buyer chose for herself - and she's pretty much tested them all. It's simply more comfortable for longer periods: the ergonomic straps lift the weight off your shoulders, while the lumbar support protects your back...
Pros: Lightweight, Strong Construction, Comfortable
Best Uses: Infants, Travel, Daily Use, Out & About
Describe Yourself: First Time Parent
We just adopted an 8 month baby boy. Once we figured out how to put it together, it seemed so simple. It was great as we were walking around his birth country to not always have to carry him in our arms. Being a 1st-time mom, it made it easier to carry him around going right to a 19 lb. baby was not easy. He's also so comfortable in it that he falls asleep in there. I've also been able to put him in there as I do some cleaning up around the house. The lumbar support in the Baby Bjorn active model is great and makes carrying him around so much easier. I really haven't tried getting him in there myself; my husband always helps; getting him in there by oneself may be a little challenging.
