    roman loves twoRoman tells us “Sleepy time” and says “I’m so tired”.  He also says “I funny” and “I silly”.  For example, he put a funny hat on his head and said “I silly” while smiling.  What a sense of humor!!  It was dinner and he said “breakfast time” while smiling to make a joke.  And it’s the cutest thing… he initiates cleaning up by himself and attempts to sing the clean up song.  And this little guy thinks he can eat a whole bag of chips!  He has been randomly requesting milk with a straw sometimes and he hardly ever drinks milk.  

    roman and delancey sign It was Mommy & Daddy’s anniversary so we went to Angel Orensanz and got the cutest pic of him on Delancey Street.  And we of course went to Katz’s Deli for dinner!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

    Roman eats at katz Roman is really into play dough this week and says “Make this dinosaur” or “Help me make this”.  He even said “make a pile” when he was stacking up all of his dinos.  He loves feeding his dinosaur and tells it to “eat ____”.  He produces “how” questions such as “How make this?”.  He also asks questions such as “What’s happened?”.  He comments about things in his environment by saying “It’s ____” (e.g. – yucky, dirty, color).  He tells us to “fill it up” or “more fill it up mama”.  He loves when swing him by the arms and says “swing me now”.  “Now” has become one of his favorite words within phrases since he likes things done immediately!  He also uses phrases with “too”, “another”, and “other”.  He says “no mama this way” to point in the direction he wants to go.  He labels things we never knew he knew like a knight, farmer, etc.  He loves labeling colors.  He pretends to be an animal and says the sounds while acting like it (e.g. – flaps his arms while saying “flying pteradactyl”, swings his arms to pretend to be a monkey and says “oo oo oo aa aa aa”, etc..  Little guy is going to be great at charades!  And the silly guy has been obsessed with Thanksgiving pictures – way to early for that!

    Roman on the log He loved going to Longwood Gardens this weekend and produced phrases such as “tree houses”.  He climbed up four of them and saw “dragons”, “birds”, and much more!  There was even a cool log chair to sit in.  He loved running around the fountains, touching the flowers, and he was obsessed with the “map”.  He wanted me to show him where we were and where we were going.  He also got to go to Chuck E Cheese with his best friends and we even took him to the circus.  He has been helping out at the playspace and at our community fairs.  He still loves playing in the toddler area and getting on the ride-on toys.                                                                                                                                     

    Roman loves the turtle Another favorite is the Little Zookeepers class.  This week he got to pet a frog and even made a frog life cycle.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

    Us with the Mayor of Princeton The week ended with a bang – it was our official grand opening party at Princeton Playspace!  We cut the ribbon with the mayor, had yummy food and cupcakes, did fun activity and just had a ball celebrating!  Mr. Roman wore a Princeton Playspace t-shirt to represent!
