Speak of Tattoos
At Wesmans’ last doctor’s appointment he met all the developmental benchmarks, except one. I mentioned it at the time (about 2 months ago) and expressed that I wasn’t that worried about it. I’m still not, but the fact that I’m writing this demonstrates that I have a little concern. At 18 months he was supposed to be able to have a vocabulary of 9 words. He didn’t…and he still doesn’t. The weird thing is, he’s very vocal. He points (mostly at fire extinguishers) and blabs like like he’s saying something, but they aren’t words. He can follow along with all the songs on his Korean and English CDs; he sounds like he’s singing, but he’s basically humming. I think if he were completely silent I’d be more concerned than I am. He gets a lot more Korean than Jake did, so the two languages might be slowing down the development. In three years I’ll likely look back at this time and miss the silence. Why? Well Jakes is basically the opposite. Yes, he’s occasionally silent, but most of the time he’s talking, singing, and/or asking a question. Mostly questions, and as I’ve written lately, he’s asked me everything except “Why do zebras have stripes?”
I wonder if they’ll have tattoos when the get older. Jake went into the kitchen the other day and walked out with tattoos all over his body. He loves them. Thank god they wear off.
Oh, and omma and I went to see Morrissey the other night.
