Ian Year 1 Month 8 Battle Report

Ian is only 4 months away from turning 2. He owns strong opinions, a loud, raucous voice, and way too many cars and trucks. His favourite foods are Belvita crackers (blueberry not cranberry orange), YoBaby yogurt, and waffles. He's gotten in the habit of throwing food on the floor when he's done eating -- we're trying hard not to react to it.

He doesn't like it when I touch his hair so his haircuts proceed at one snip per day, usually while he's distracted by yogurt. I've only cut the front and sides, enough to keep the yogurt away.

His sense of pitch continues to be outstanding, and you can always tell what he's trying to sing. He's particularly partial to "Rumble Rumble Dinosaur" which he sings any time he sees a dinosaur on a bib or outfit. He knows many words and is good at mimicking your words if you ask him too. His names for the family are: Dada, Mama, MaiMai, Nana (for Nana or Grandma), and Baba (for Grandpa).

He still loves wheels and anything with wheels. He has decided that the gear icon representing "Settings" on my phone is a wheel. He likes spotting the moon at night too -- we have a traditional call and response litany that we go through each night:

Ian: Dar'!
BU: Is it dark outside?
Ian: Yeah!
BU: The sun went down.
Ian: Moon!
BU: Do you see the moon?
Ian: Yeah!

The last line is typically a lie as it's too cloudy outside.

The cutest thing he does at the moment is really getting into the nighttime routine. After getting pajamas on, he runs into the kitchen for dessert (" 'andy bucket!"). After brushing teeth, he runs into Maia's for stories ("Stoy time!"). He sleeps through the night (after a few brief hiccups in November and December) usually from 7 PM to 7:30 AM, with a 1.5 - 2.5 hour afternoon nap.
