Gus has been long overdue for a haircut. There have been a few people that have mistaken him for a girl. It's most likely his LONG eyelashes, but we've been wondering if his hair might be misleading them as well. We also didn't want to be accused of fostering a chullet (the child manifestation of the mullet), so we decided to give it a go and cut at least the back of Gus's hair and some of the hair that has been hanging over his ears.
It was a little tough for us to keep Gus preoccupied, but overall we were successful and are, at this point, happy with the results.
Gus here, reminding you to eat at least 5 servings of vegetables a day...preferably from an organic garden!A quick search online revealed that toddlers are generally considered to be between 12 and 36 months. Gus is 11.25 months old. It seems that he's already enjoying a common toddler activity: pulling things out of drawers. While putting away some of his clothes the other day, Gus pulled up to have a look in the drawer. Shortly thereafter, Gus took most everything out.
Although we expected otherwise, V has not pronounced any new words. Cat and light are the only two words in his repetoire, but even those two have gotten harder to understand. He can wave, clap and sign "more" and "shoes," but the latter two are really just variations of the clap used situationally. He's pretty funny. Oh, no standing or walking yet either. He's pretty good at sitting from a pull up position and vice versa though. He is also getting much better at walking with support. Maybe he can get it figured out in time for his birthday!
