It's been awhile since I really updated about our boy. Kalvis is doing beautifully. He is a little over 16 months now. At his 15 month appointment our pediatrician was very happy with his development and adjustment to his new life. He says a few words mostly "Maaa", "Mama" or "MAAAAMAAAA", but also Papa and something that sounds like Ball (which is really anything he throws). He eats beautifully with a fork for over a month now. I thought that was early. His patience with the fork is adorable. He'll try and try to get something as small as a pea on one of the tines. If all else fails, he'll pick it up and spear it on with his hands. That's not to say he's all about patience. Kalvis can definitely let his little temper come out, but we refer to that as his passionate side. While he can get angry at times, he loves and shows affection with even more zeal.
At this age, a little temper flare up is usually out of frustration to communicate. One thing that we have done to help his frustration is sign language. This has made a huge difference. Screams from the high chair are now typically a "Ma!" followed by the more sign. I highly suggest sign language for you new parents out there
**(hi, Andy and Susan!).
Speaking of his loving little affectionate side, Kalvis offers up hugs and kisses that melt my heart. It's not uncommon for him to come at you all puckered up over and over and over again. His love has extended beyond his immediate family as we watch his bond to grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins grow everyday.
So much more to say, but luckily I have thousands of more pictures to share and posts to write. I hope you are all having a wonderful start to the summer.
**our friends Andy and Susan are leaving for Seoul very soon, for their sweet boy. Send a little prayer/wish/postive thought their way for a quick and safe travel.
