More baby stuff

Found another notebook with more “baby moments”.  This time for Jason…going really far back. It is fun to remember Jason “back then” and now see him as a 9 year old…hard to believe sometimes. Also makes me wish that I had a blog back then!

Novemeber 18, 1997 – When Mommy asked Jason to “go get his ball” he looked for it, found it across the room and brought it back. He is getting smarter and smarter every day!

November 27, 1997 – Thanksgiving day. Jason was in Granny Hoffmann’s kitchen when he all of a sudden decided to stand up all on his own!

Last few weeks in November 1997 – Mommy and Daddy have really noticed that Jason was really understanding what was being said. He could go get his ball for Daddy, give his cup to Mommy and all sorts of other things. And he was defintiely making his opinions known.

Novemeber 28th 1997 – Jason learned a new game – throw things down the stairs. he would get Eyore and drop him down the stairs and laugh and peer over the edge to see where he landed.

Decemeber 7 1997 – Jason took a few tottering steps toward Granny. Daddy didn’t believe it, but later that day Jason took a few more!

A few days before Jason’s 1st Birthday – Mom and Dad left Jason with Granny for the evening. Jason had a wonderful time, except when Granny would mention Mommy or Daddy. His lower lip would start to pout. This was the first time Jason showed that remembered who Mommy and Daddy were when they were gone.

December 10, 1997 – Jason clapped his hands while eating lunch with Mom.

December 22, 1997 – Jason threw his first real temper tantrum! Jason wanted to drink out of Mommy’s glass of soda. Mommy said ”no” and asked him if he wanted his own drink. Jason immediately started crying, threw his head back, arched his back and slid from the couch onto the floor. As soon as Mommy showed him his own cup, the tears immediately stopped and he was his own happy-go-lucky self again. 

December 27, 1997 – Jason started going down the stairs backwards. Mommy or Daddy would have to turn him around to get him started, but from there on, he could do it himself.

December 30, 1997 – Jason started turning himself backwards before going dwon the stairs with no help from Mommy or Daddy.

April 1998 – Jason discovered that he could go down the slide at the playground all by himself. The smile on his face was priceless.

32 months old – Daddy was tickling Jason and Jason said “You can not tickle me!” So Daddy said that he would eat him instead. Jason said “You can not eat me!” When Daddy asked why, Jason responded “Because I am not food!”

32 months old – Jason informed Mommy that there were monsters living in the basement, but it was OK because they were nice monsters. There was a Mommy, a Daddy and a Baby monster. The Baby monster loved the Mommy and Daddy monster. Upon further questioning, Mommy found out that the monsters did not have any teeth and that they liked doing laundry.

About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

One Response to More baby stuff

  1. Awww! These are wonderful. You just reminded me of the time my older daughter (about the same age as Jason when he explained “I am not food”) and I were reading a story. I jokingly asked her “Is Sandy (the dog) going to read the book? She gave me a bemused look for a moment, then patiently explained, “No. Sandy does not have hands.” Great post!
