This is our 20-month old baby, Dominik, fresh out of the bath. He doesn't hit me when I call him "baby," yet. He's 20 months old today, but he acts like he's going on 5 years. Not only is he overly aware of his bodily functions (IMHO) but he likes to wear baseball caps and backpacks like his brothers. And he's chattering away at me about a million things that are terribly important but are unintelligible. To me.
The speaking is getting better, with practice. Believe me when I say he has a HUGE vocabulary...you just can't understand what he's saying. But he understands us! He understands when he's getting left out of what everyone else is doing, and he doesn't like it. I think in the past few weeks, the light bulbs have been going on in Dominik's brain that there is a lot of stuff out there to learn and he wants to learn it all NOW.
This kid is so much fun! I love every age of my kids, because it's fun to watch them learn a new stage. I had forgotten how much fun 20 months is. Then I checked on what Konrad was doing at 20 months...I'm happy Dominik is still happy in the baby swing with a restraint.
