We're still figuring out the feeding. He's kind of a bottomless pit with almost anything solid, but he doesn't drink much formula -- which you think that's pretty normal for a 2 year old, except it's the opposite of the "current" care plan we were given. We'll just take cues from him on this.
We got his size wrong. Jonah is swimming in 2T. We'll have to get a few things for him while we're here and then hit the stores for 18 months when we're home.
He is a little chatter box. Whatever he's saying usually makes the chinese people around us laugh and say he's cute. We're using a mixture of bad Mandarin, signs, and short English words to communicate to him. He's pointing, grunting, and throwing to communicate with us. We're calling him by a variety of names Jonah Baole or Jonah Le Le or just Le Le. The best I can write out the pronunciation is Bow Luh, with the emphasis on Luh. Every now and then I can tell when I say it right because he looks my way.
He's super active-- running, jumping, and trying to climb. He's super smart--already picked up the word car and put a used piece of tissue in the trashcan. He's a little mischievous-- throws a toy one way for me to fetch while he runs to explore the light socket. I know all the *supers* overdo it, but I was completely prepared to arrive to find a child that was far behind in his development. Instead we have an active, smart, sweet little boy. He's already made it quite clear he likes Mommy's hugs and kisses.
We're told the nanny's loved his personality and spoiled him a bit. I have to agree with them, he is adorable.
