Brock's First Gymnastics Class

Tia Mandy & I took Brock to his first gymnastics class at the JCC. He did amazingly well!!!! He did the entire obstacle course several times and loved it. Especially the trampoline where he got to jump. He also smiled hugely as he slid down the big cheese. Bonked his head twice and never cried. He's going to so enjoy this class. :-) On our way to take him back to his classroom we heard singing. It was Quinn's class having Shabbot. We joined in and danced. The music teacher said that Brock really rocks when she's playing her guitar and singing. A good day all around.

New Words

Brock now recognizes he can say yes and no by shaking his head... I'm also pretty sure he said "una" while we were counting tonight too.

New Nickname

I think his name should be Brockston Goose-egg Toby Shefman, given the sizable bumps that develop on his forehead when he (continually) accidentally bangs his head into something. Tonight he got one that was at least an inch in diameter.

Very sad

Assertion of Will

So Brock certainly knows what he wants. He wants to brush his teeth by himself, and will not release the toothbrush for you to aid. He knows which books he wants to read, and with writhe and wiggle out of your arms to fetch the one that he wants, not the one that you choose. He will absolutely stop eating whatever is in front of him if the Life cereal is on the table....

Pooping in the potty

Brock pooped in the potty three times this vacation... if only we had more days to just spend with the kids...

Sleeping on the plane

We had to fight with him returning the rental car, but keeping him awake was perfect because he slept for 2 hours on the plane from Arizona.

Plane potty poop

Brock poops in the potty on the way to Danny's wedding.

Also didn't cry at all, slept a little, ate a lot... And was generally happy.
