The Chazz Lately: Edition II

What a busy week for Chazz. Our Little Smartie-Pants. Oh my, he is only getting more and more clever! This past week, especially, Chazz’s brain seems to be sponging up whatever it can.

From signing like a pro to climbing EVERYTHING, he is really growing in the brain department.

So this week’s The Chazz Lately will be all about his royal smartness. ❤

Chazz Man also turned 14 Months
on the 14th. How is that?!? Didn’t we just bring bring him home from the hospital?

•Chazz is really using that sign language! Way back when we first started showing Chazz a few signs, we didn’t know just how effective it was going to be! Chazz only knows a few signs, like Milk, Mom & Dad, and Eat, but it sure makes communicating that much easier. When he wants milk? He can sign it rather than get frustrated.

And the look on his face when you understand him is priceless. He loves that he can ask and recieve, and we get him.

We really need to teach him a few more so he can keep going! Especially since TALKING English doesn’t really seem to be a top priority for him, he much prefers Chazz-ese.

•Last Wednesday Chazz started turning the pages of his books all by himself. He flipped through books all hy himself, and wasn’t letting me help AT ALL! If I tried to, he would close the book and start all over. Ahh, yes he is so my child!

He even has a few favorite books. The first is a book he has has since birth, called I Am A Bunny. The illustrations are all done by Richard Scarry, and we both love the pictures. Chazz points at the bunny as he goes through the seasons.

His other favorite book is one of those pop-up musical types. Chazz has already ripped off a window and nommed on a cat’s ear, but he just loves it. He tries to “read” Twinkle Twinkle Little Star before bed and listen to the lullaby. He points at the twinkling star on the last page.

•Speaking of a smartie-pants: if I move something Chazz isn’t supposed to have, he no longer just forgets it an moves on. Oh no. Now it is a challenge for him. Either a duel, to scream his head off in hopes of us giving in. Or an adventure, where he must find a way to climb up however high to get it. {And give his poor Mama a heart attack.}

What a smart little tyrant. 😀

•Today, I told Chazz what a cute nose he had, and he pointed to his nose! {and like a typical boy, tried to pick it :-)} He also points to his lips and eyes when you ask him to. Well, most of the time!

I don’t even when he could pick that up. I don’t remember sitting down and point them all out. But it doesn’t matter, he is a quick learner on his own!

Maybe all those times I’m telling to stop poking my eyes!??

    What a cutie! We do sign language with our little man also and it is just the best thing ever. What other signs are you hoping to teach him?

      Hey Aliss, thank you! He’s our little cutie-pie 🙂 Thr next signs we are trying are Bed, Diaper, and Water. I thought those three would be good for the next round. Especially with the end of co-sleeping and then potty triaining on the (far, far) horizon.

      What signs are you all working on?
