Every day Stephen is trying to be a big boy and imitate his parents. He loves to “shave,” put on deoderant, sit on the potty, comb his hair, and put on lotion. He even put himself in time out after hitting himself in the head. After he hit himself, he said, “No hit, Steben. Steben go time out.” Then he went in his room and shut the door. It’s amazing how he mini-mirrors everything we do.
He is also starting to play some games, like hide-and-seek. He still doesn’t quite get the point of the game, though. He was “hiding” balled up in the middle of the living room with his hands over his face. I said, “Where’s Stephen? Is he in the kitchen?”
Only to hear the little ball respond, “No, Mommy! Steben on the ground!” Nothing can convince him that he isn’t actually supposed to tell me where he is. Soon enough, I’m sure!
