Today was a work day. I had a LOT of work to do today, and I'm very happy with the amount that I've accomplished today. Sean went off to daycare in the morning and this morning he gave me a kiss and went off on his merry way - I am so happy that things are getting better at daycare. He had a few off mornings this week - but today was a lot better. Though, he's very easily distracted in his classroom - which is a good thing.
Sean can now say A, B, C and sometimes he says D. In order. Very proud of himself. He can point out a circle, triangle & square. He can tell you that a ball is also a circle. He knows Blue, and yellow and we're working on red. He sometimes can point out something green. This kid is smart. I'm very impressed with him. I think never talking to him like a baby and always like an adult has helped. I never did the baby talk ("goo goo gaa gaa") with him. We watch a lot of educational shows, and even the stuff normal kids watch (Barney, Seseme Street - which are all learning episodes - counting, alphabet, shapes, colors, etc). Sometimes I think he outsmarts me - and he's very... what's the word... maybe too smart for his own good? LOL... I'm going to look up where a 23 month old is supposed to be at - I've been forgetting to do that each month in "What to Expect the Toddler Years" - which I have. I'll pull that out tomorrow. Sean turns 23 months old tomorrow. One month left until he turns 2. Am I ready? No. Not quite.
I got some mail today - from Zonda. We did a trade on Ravelry. I had been eyeing these 2 skeins of Lorna's Laces Sock in the Knit Happens colorway - which is an exclusive colorway to the store Knit Happens. They're always OUT OF STOCK on it. Well, Zonda had them in her "For trade" page.... and I jumped. (No idea how long they've been on there for to trade, but when I saw it - I was like " trade me now!") LOL. So today it arrived at my door. Thanks Zonda for the swap!
Tonight we ordered in Chinese food - Mmmm! and sat on the couch and watched tv. (30 Rock & Big Bang Theory - which we just started watching both). I also have some dates of stuff that are starting up in January! Whoot. We have:
Lword - January 18th, 2009
Big Love - January 18th, 2009
There have been commercials for 24, but there are no dates yet on epguides.com
The same for Monk - I googled it, and they're saying January, but no dates yet on epguides.com
I'm burned out from doing work all day today. I'm going to go crash. I don't even have the energy to bring my book to bed - I don't think I can keep my eyes open. I don't even have the energy to fold the laundry I've been doing all day - it'll have to wait for tomorrow. (The laundry seriously NEVER ends in this house)....!
Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!
