before i conceived jeremiah, i wrote a song called “jeremiah” for my first-born son.
i sang it when i was pregnant with him.
i sang it when he was tiny.
i sang it until he started saying “no, mama” which believe me, broke my heart.
the past few weeks i’ve been asking him if he wants to hear his song. sometimes he says yes, sometimes he says no.
last night he asked me to sing “mi-mi’s song”. he actually ASKED me to sing it! and he said, “again, mama, again!”
i don’t know if it has to do with me working on josiah’s song, trying to get it right, and he always wants to get what josiah gets. but it sure warms my heart and makes me smile! 🙂
jeremiah has trouble saying ‘r’ words sometimes. they come out with different consonants, but the biggest one he uses to replace is ‘h’. so ‘rocking chair’ comes out ‘hocking chair’.
tonight, i told him i was going to nurse josiah. every time i tell him that, he wants extra attention.
he replied, ‘but mama, i hold you in hocking chair’.
i have been attempting to get him to correct this thing, so i said, ‘you mean the rrrrrrrrocking chair?’
he nodded, ‘yes, hocking chair’.
i continued to say rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr and added more and more rrrrr sounds and he kept saying ‘hocking chair’.
the last time, he stopped, looked at me and said, ‘i hold you on couch mama?’
jeremiah turned 28 months yesterday. i really don’t know how i feel about it. it’s kind of surreal.
josiah has been growling a lot. it is soooo cute!!
usually, if i ask josiah if he wants to nurse, and sign a wiggly y (my sign for nursing), he will laugh and bounce up and down. i always assume this means ‘yes’. sometimes he just wants to play with the hardware. *rolls eyes*
did i mention josiah walked to me the other day, the first time walking without falling?
josiah had spaghetti today. he ate it up! he loves canned peas, canned carrots, and banana chunks. but ONLY if he is feeding himself. he is extremely independent and wants to do it himself. while jeremiah is still letting me dress him, i have a feeling josiah will be a little over one before he starts saying “i do it, mama!” he even wants to feed himself applesauce. yeah, that scene is always pretty.
