Our 22-month old is going through a big language growth right now. Man, it's exciting. He delights me with words I didn't know he even understood, and is putting together fragmented (and a few complete) sentences like an old pro. He's also starting to identify colors (orange is his favorite; anything he's not sure of is--gleefully--"WHITE!!") and can apparently count to 10, although (here's one for the unschoolers in the audience) no one taught him. It's funny...First Kid gets all of the careful lessons and Second Kid just kind of picks things up and surprises you.
Oh, and for the first time since Second Kid was gestating, we finally got a snowman-worthy snow this week. Hooray!
