He still has zero interest in the potty, but he is really doing well at picking up after himself and his speech is clearer, with a larger vocabulary & sentence structure. He is getting better with his fine motor skills & his temper seems to be easing up. His tantrums are lessening in intensity & duration. he is really growing in the area of imaginary play. DS1 had a number of imaginary friends by now but DS2 doesn't appear to. He is however always making up games & things to do. He's a stubborn little cuss too.
All his gifts arrived today, which is luck not planning. As predicted 3 days after buying a LeakLess on eBay for $7.99 plus shipping, the KB Toys in town stocked them for $3.53. But they also stocked The King, which I was not going to pay $19.99 plus shipping for so I'm ok with that. The movie moment sets I got on ebay are still nowhere to be found so Im ok with paying a few extra bucks for them. None of the stores around had any of the Take Along Thomas stuff, except some trains I'd never heard of. I was hoping to get the Sodor Engine Wash, which they'd had 2 weeks ago everywhere. Shoulda bought it then. Finally found a crane set at Target & some additional track & a Percy. Plus we have the wooden Tonka tow truck we bought so we'd be sure to have at least something for him to open. The cake is cooling. It's a bundt cake because that is what he asked for. Chocolate, with chocolate icing & Cars candies. We're having pizza tonight at his request as well.
