I think this is the end of describing Sloane’s age in terms of months. There have been many birthdays in the past 3 months and she is understanding the concept of birthday. She asks me constantly when people’s birthdays are, such as Daddy-O birthday? Lida birthday? Bennett birthday? Today, she asked me the birthdays of all the babies in her picture book. I think her 2nd birthday will be really fun!
Today we went and got her flu shot. And she didn’t even cry. Like a champ, she just stared at me and then asked to see the band-aid. She got a little worked up when I had to pull on her pants and the band-aid was covered.
Sloane also asks for Adam and me to make up stories for her. She will dictate the characters and settings. Frequently it is about a bear and a rabbit, sometimes a bear and a bare naked rabbit. She will then interrupt the story to insert something she wants to hear, which 99% of the time is someone bumping their toes. Then she laughs and requests that the story include them getting a hug. She is definitely into slap-stick comedy.
