Eek. I'm really failing at this blog. I really want to remember stuff about silas st this age and keep forgetting to write it down. :/
Mike brought home the movie Pippi Longstocking a month or so ago. The old horribly dubbed one from Sweden I think. The boys did not want to watch it but I made them. They LOVED it! But what was most surprising was how much Silas loved it. He became obsessed! This is especially funny b he had never even sat to watch a 20 mins PBS cartoon before and all the sudden he wanted to watch Pippi. And all the time! He'd go to the projector and say "Piiiipi" pretty cute. It was nice to have him watch .it on days he didn't nap so I could still get stuff done. But I saw it becoming too much of a crutch do had Mike return it. Silas still asks but not as often. I'm thinking of getting a Pippi doll for him for Christmas :)
Silas started getting speech a few months ago. Last week I got his original evaluation in the mail - from this summer- his speech was at 11.5months at tge time. I doubt he's much higher now. I think he's even behind where Eli was at this age. He doesn't really have words for anything. He says no and shakes his head yes and no. There are things he can say - mama Dada baby ba (ball) but he doesn't regularly use them. He did just start saying Me and points at himself. Rowan gets really annoyed with him cause he's always trying to pull him somewhere to show him stuff. It's cute but definitely stressful to try and figure out what he wants.
We switched around the kids bedrooms! I expected mike to not be happy when I suggested it but he actually went for it! Because if how much rowan and eli were fighting eli had been sleeping on the floor in Silas's room. But most of the toys were in Rowans room and that just caused more issues. So we moved the bunk bed into silas's room and Rowans room became the playroom. I love having a room just for toys and I think they are doing great being in one room. Rowan actually falls asleep a lot quicker! He wouldn't admit it but I think he'd get scared a lot in his own room.
Of course the bad part is we moved Silas to the toddler bed since he was trying to get out of the crib. It's been awful. He went to bed do good in the crib snd now it's a nightmare. I don't know what to do. Usually he ends up laying in our bed and falling asleep. I wish he'd lay with Eli but he won't. Nap time isn't quite as bad but still takes way longer. Today I let him lay in my bed to fall asleep and he was out pretty quickly. Hopefully we figure something out soon cause I'm kinda going crazy with bedtime!
