There's something about turning 1 that changes everything! Sure there's the whole mobility thing, but there's something about Jude's personality that's changing too. He's more curious, explorative. He's more assertive. He exercises his opinion ... and exercises his right to complain when he doesn't get his own way. It just feels like everything has happened all at once. Jon and I just look at each other and say, "Wow, he's not even the same kid he was last week!"
|He's recently picked up the art of "pointing" and uses it forcefully all throughout the day.|
I just realized that although I mentioned Jude's first few steps last week (which he has not repeated by the way), I neglected to write about his recent crawling. Yes, just when we started to think that Jude would always be an army crawler, he figured real crawling out. And now he does it all the time.
