Decisiveness (Or Perhaps Routine)

by Dave

It’s becoming more apparent each day that Eli knows what he wants and when he wants it. The only question is how well that information is relayed to us.

Lately he’s been leading us to his high chair when he’s hungry. He brings us books and puts his arms up when he wants to read. Today he went to fridge (his signal that he’s thirsty) and pulled on the handle a little. After giving him his juice, he started drinking it and slowly walked back to his room, stopping in front of his rocker (his signal that he’s ready for a nap). I followed him back and sat down. Eli sat with me until he was done drinking and then gave the cup to me. We sat for a minute and then I put him in bed without a fuss.
