My Little Grown Up
This has been a pretty big week for Itai. He hasn't quite turned 18 months old yet, but he's close enough for his first week in nursery. He loved it! A few weeks ago I took him into the nursery to introduce him to the idea so when we walked in on Sunday he was ready to go. I hadn't even gotten to the top of the stairs when Itai started pointing at the ground trying to wiggle out of my arms.
He ran into the toy area and never looked back. I stayed in the wings, waiting for him to notice that I had left him there, but either he already knew or he just didn't care. Either way he was happy with the Elmo phone and the strangers around him. Two hours later he was still having fun and not really excited about leaving.
Later this week he had has first day of day care. Once again he loved it. Debbie dropped him off and he was excited to leave again. When I came to pick him up he was playing on the playground and was really not ready to leave. Neither was Avi. He came with me to pick Itai up and he loved it there.
He also has some new favorite words: fish, cracker and dog. He loves the dog that lives in the house behind us, the fish at Walmart, PetCo and the Aquarium and well crackers anytime, anywhere.
Today he touched a stingray, a starfish and some sort of crab. This is why we LOVE the aquarium! (Everyone but Debbie that is!)
(Did you notice that he's even wearing pants in most of the pictures?)
