Just another day at the park

I suppose that I haven't really updated everybody on Kellan's most recent exploits in awhile. Where does the time go? Kel is heading towards the 2 1/2 mark now and amazes me daily with the speed at which he changes, learns, and develops. His language is advancing at light speed. There are very few silly words left, and more than that, he can mimic just about anything that we say and picks things up at first listen. He is still nursing and enjoys it immensely. He nurses about four times a day now, though sometimes more if things are particularly stressful, or, conversely, if I actually attempt to sit down and relax for five minutes -- Mom's resting, must be time to nurse! He is social and happy, loves his "buddies", and finds no greater joy than in simply being with other children. So much for the only child loner thing. Nice try Mom, but you're only getting the one. He has started sleeping through the night now, and better than that, actually putting himself to sleep at bedtime. I nurse him, then give him a kiss and leave the room -- we don't hear from him again until he wakes up around 5am the next morning. Life is beginning to resume a more normal pace. Kellan gets more fun by the day and we regain our sanity in the process -- this is a good age.
